cutting down the choices,.
« on: Mar 23, 2020, 08:37:21 AM »
it was interesting when seeing the news of the possibility of food producers cutting down the range of say 17 different types of sausages, for example,.

or any product that has multiple variations of the same product for another example variations of  pasta, or sauces, or anything which has multiple variations of the same food,

obviously it means although were restricted in the range of some foods at least  the food can be made and produced faster due to having much fewer choices,  perhaps it can be a good option ,

Q; do you have any thoughts on the amount of the same food being varied , rather than simply  two variations  say only  two types of sausages, pork or beef for example ,

Yeah, but ordinary 'sausage is sausage' won't satisfy the Real Housewives of Cheshire & the Islington set Waitrose shoppers don'tcha know.

It doesn't bother me at all, I'll just be glad to be able to get the messages.

For some this will be an introduction to the real world. It really demonstrates how lucky we are most of the time, to be able to chose between 20 styles of humous not to mention bog roll.

Can't see any harm in reducing the ranges so long as means the quantities go up to cope with the idiots still panic buying

Right, thanks, I'd never have worked that one out. ;D

If I'm not wrong Raven, you've been using 'messages' since you came to PF. 'S amazing that it's not been commented on before.. ;)
