Just that really: what is the box design all about? Why is there the circular hole? What are the perforated quarter circles for? Is it all some advanced alien technology or am I just too dense to understand a basic cardboard box?

There is a kids’ detective book where the box of Maltesers has a barcode which is secret code to open a criminal’s secret safe wherein are stashed the diamonds. Does that help?

I've just reread this thread and made myself laugh with my own stories account of my Maltesers career.

Have the boxes got smaller or have fewer in? I used to share a box with my Mother (as a kid) and now I can eat a whole box myself. It can't be increasing greed, surely???

This thread has been going a year and now we are all wanting Maltesers. Did the pp bumping the zombie get a commission?

Hahahalol! I'm the bumper but I swear I did not even get one tiny ball of deliciousness as a commission.
I figured that since everyone (except the one poster who told @Poptasmagorical to 'get a life' ) had so much MN fun last year with the
Post that it needed to come out of zombie status to cheer up the Malteser lovers of the world once again. Yes, @Poptasmagorical
