    I just received an email from weetabix regarding my 'complaint' that they have reduced the alpen light boxes by one bar but have not changed the price. This is the response:


    Anyone else had a pointless reply?

    My local Tesco is selling the 'new box size' Alpen lights at £1.62. It works out to 2p per bar more expensive than the apple and sultana ones, which I think it was roughly anyway.

    It looks like it's a case of keeping an eye on the different supermarkets x
