Chocs away! Watch out for those Krafty Yanks

By Gail Walker

I know we're supposed to be the 51st state and everything ... but Cadbury's.

It's getting a bit much when the Americans start interfering with our chocolate.

Of course, Kraft — the new American owners — promise that nothing will change etc etc.

But it will. In fact, it already has. A little symbol of something uniquely us has gone, swallowed into the ravenous maw of international captialism (to quote me old leftie mates).

Plus, let’s face it, they will eventually start monkeying about with our chocolate. Beef jerky flavoured? Pecan maple? With added jello and yams?

Pah! Makes you think that maybe Enoch and Tony were right about steering clear of those busybody Americans after all ...
