    Do we all know about the change in recipe to full fat Ribena.

    Nothing to say on the label it now contains sweeteners.

    I had to go on a hunt for the old recipe today for DD1 found some small bottles for 2.49 gutted the big bottles almost double the size were only 2.50 but the new recipe.

    Lots of unhappy people on FB and twitter.

    Very pd off if Rubens have added sweeteners to their squash
    Tesco changed their hi juice a while ago so I have to go to Waitrose or Sainsburys

    I am allergic to sweeteners they make me vomit

    Supposedly in the name of healthy eating

    Hate to think what they
    will find all these sweeteners do for our health way down the line

    Didnt smoking used to be good for you
    I say "THANKS" to posts that make me smile - Oh and really good glitches.

    Originally posted by davemorton
    There is. If you only buy 3 when comparing to the 2 for 10 offer in Ms you will only get 2 of the 3 bottles comparing at the cheaper price in M. Need to buy 6 if doing vs M 2 for 10 offer.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Are we avoiding the red WB now but white and fizz still ok please?

    All of mine showed on apg not just two, so in effect all 3 bottles compared. To get it to compare for the 2 for 10 offer and to get the 3 for 2 offer in As you must buy in 6s....unless I've missed something?

    Can I ask a smart meter question please?
    I have outside meters at the moment, do these run as normal if you have a smart meter installed or are they disconnected/removed?
    I'm still with BG standard tariff and need to do something. I'm worried about changing to smart as I've heard that they can give incorrect readings, overcharging by loads!

    My meters are outside and a smart meter is installed, you still have meters outside that you can check, just need to know what buttons to press. So if you are worried, yes you can check outside.
    You can also use them to set energy targets and check what is using most power by turning things off and on.
    If you have been in your home for a while, you will know what amount of enery you have, and what you will be using, so keep an eye on it just to re-assure yourself.
