What the hell? Where are my other 2 [Tunnock’s*] tea cakes [From Centra, Kildare]! #teacakegate is on!

    I remember either Milka or Jacobs team cakes were also guilty of this.
    Boxes used to be ’24’ , then were marked as ’20’.
    I presume these came in an outer box stating the number of tea cakes, so you can’t really say much if it says 10 or 20 (depending on layers…)

      They can only be a cheap imitation of the beauteous, individually wrapped, pieces of perfection that bear the name of Tunnocks.

      I’m off to the shop.

    1. They aren’t Tunnock’s Tea Cakes.
    2. Just because there’s space doesn’t mean it has to be filled.
    3. The packaging tells you how many there should be, not you dumb eye/brains combo.
    4. The original poster is just a troll to see how low quality of post they can get broadsheet to post for them.

        Be careful of the old dumb eye brain syndrome (DEBS), this is the type of afflicition that makes you go to Lidl for milk but come out with a set of 24 socket wrenches. I had a severe case of it over the weekend but on the plus side I now own a wetsuit..

          I’ve had that. Argued for 10 mins with myself over a stand mixer. Logic won that round, but narrowly, thanks to the serious lack of cupboard space in my house.

      1: Kind of a bizarre level of cynicism towards a quirky post.

      2: no need to try make someone feel bad for something intended as levity

      3: scroll on if you don’t like the post

      4: do the world a favour and keep your snide to yourself.

        1. The kind of quirky post you refer to is best left for peoples own Tumblrs. \
        2. Apologies to Emma-Jane.

    Is this not totally self defeating? it’s basically fraud. I’d make a note never, ever to buy this padded crap again. Dublin apartment standards have less space per occupant stipulated.

    1. Parky Mark

      It’s not fraud. It states on the pack how many there are.
      Do you complain when you open a bag of crisps to find there’s also air inside the bag as well as crisps, even though they are a weighed portion?

      1. ahjayzis

        The size of the package would lead me to believe that while there are X number of items, that they’re larger so as to take up the space of the box. This packaging contains 60-70% empty space and superfluous plastic.

    This is the type of thing that makes me glad I’m not the President of a nuclear country as I would find the manufacturer of this duplicitous monstrosity, end their lineage and salt the earth.
