my bag shows 1kg and then shows a funny shaped e - do you know what that means?
I always assumed it was some sort of EU approval of a kg IYSWIM
that's a european Kilo. it's a bit smaller than the more superior large british Kilo. YOu've been diddled out of about 8g of sugar.
oooh cheeky feckers. They'd better not do that to wine.
How on earth can a European kilo be smaller than a British one? Surely a kilo is a kilo?
Nope is foreign conspiracy. You know those lightweight wine bottles? Because the glass is thinner is there more area inside the bottle for abit more wine?
It's the average weight mark.It means no more than 1 in 40 packages can be below the nominal weight, and the small e is a pan-European 'guarantee' of packing to this standard.
what lighweight bottles?Where?Which ones have more wine in?
