    Slightly annoyed, the price of one of the snacks I have in the afternoon from a well known high street baker has jumped by 40%!

    Thats a huge increase in one lump for the same piece of food, it's a tax on the hungry worker :(

    Time to start baking my own snacks??

    hehe im sure you can mention the name unless the baker sells PC componenets :p

    40% seems a very big price bump to me, what exactly was you buying ? maybe it has been on a special offer or somthing and price has been put back to normal ?

    Need abit more details on the snacks please :D

    Obviously believe in the same economics as red ken, he lumped the price of a zone1 tube ticket up by 50% for those without oyster cards this year :(

    ok ok so maybe it's not so bad. The 40% increase seems to have moved the product upmarket.

    It's bigger, tastier, and actual has chocolate lumps inside. The drawback is now what once filled a hole before tea is quite a big thing to eat.

    I am thinking he has started to eat baked ******** staff.

    It's still a competitor, even if it's in jest
