Cadburys cream egg competion

Shopping in Morrisons today and noticed in chocolate aisle all the Cadbury creme eggs have had all their wrappers opened  and just left on the shelfs even ones in the boxes of 6.Not only is this a  health and hygene issue but this must be costing both the retailers and manaufactures thousanads in wasted chocolate that will eventually have to be thrown away

    Apart from the fact that I dislike them, I wouldn't want to eat something whose packaging is so easily tampered with.

    Just the thought of eating one of these horrible things makes my teeth ache - but I did google this competition out of curiosity.

    Seems the 'winners' are still chocolate/edible (using the word 'edible' loosely), just that half the egg is the normal milk chocolate and the other half white.

    I expect that Cadbury's will have factored in the losses caused by people unwrapping the eggs on the supermarket shelves, against the gains of not having to pay out for the 'winners' that had been merrily stuffed down children's throats !

    Cadbury won't have any losses as the eggs have already been sold to the retailers so it's those retailers who will be losing out.
