It’s absolutely ridiculous. Just because some people lack of self control and weight problems it’s now affecting the majority of people who don’t.

I'm one of the ones its probably trying to help as I have a weight problem - but it will do sweet FA as I'll just add it from the main shopping - just a PITA as I'll get to the "favourites" page and realise the stuff missing so go back and get it.

When I buy crap in the supermarket not having it advertised won't change me feeling like a biscuit/cake/chocolate bar/bag of cookie dough. I suppose I may burn off a few extra calories going to fetch it

Ahhh HFSS in action and people, who understandably it passed by, are now noticing it. Day 1 and it's already crap.

It's only going to get more confusing. Suppliers and stores alike aren't entirely sure what they can and can't do.

Also, expect your favourite things to start tasting different if they're on promotion!

Yeah that's annoying. I'm not fat because of the checkout suggestions. I'll probably get even worse suggestions now. Remember when you once bought tip-ex? Want it offered to you every week for two years? 😑
