I'm sure it's been mentioned before, but fken PRINGLES

I swear they make the tube even bigger and the chips smaller. They're shaking around all over the show, a third of them are already broken by the time you've finished half of it.

To be honest, I have never in my whole life bought Pringles, was always too expensive for what one gets, in my opinion.

I have always wondered why you only get those 500ml glass bottles in the Western Cape, anyone have any idea?
I think it's got to do with the independent bottling company. Here in WC we have Peninsular beverages that does the bottling for coke.

I also remember when Pepsi re-entered the SA market, they focused on joburg and released a 1.25l bottle at a lower price to coke's 1.5l bottle. Coke dropped their 1.5l in Gauteng and replaced it with 1.25l. We still have 1.5l coke here with a returnable bottle.

He's referring to CT where we still have returnable 500ml glass bottles for R8.

They are available at most corner shops and some forecourt shops. I only get the glass bottle if it's available, otherwise I'll get a can.
Have something similar in Durban but not sure is it's 500ml, I think it's 300ml here

The joke is that we already deem 330ml acceptable as a reference when It was 340ml not so long ago.
We don't really deem 330ml acceptable but it was done and we had to move on :-(. Also it was done in the UK as well, it's the freaking Pringles and chocolates I find unacceptable :-(

Noticed that this weekend. Don't normally buy them but they were going on special.

Taste was not what I remembered either.
