    Apologies, its the Yorkie biscuit bar thats going and not the original yorkie

    Chocolate giant Nestle has announced it will stop making two of its favourite biscuits to make way for a new product.
    The Breakaway and Yorkie biscuit bars will disappear from shelves following a decline in sales, the company

    Gutted to hear about the demise of the Breakaway. Favourite chocolate biscuit by far.

    Are Jacobs orange club and McVities orange club not the same thing? You can buy the McVities in just about any supermarket out there.

    Yeah, itís sad. Shrinkflation.

    Itís now physically impossible to have one. You have to have two.

    Gold Bars and Orange clubs were staples, but only for a select few weeks every summer when my brother and I made the pilgrimage to Shetland. Grandad had a fishing boat where they would be broken out at lunch time with his magical boat coffee. Nothing better. When we got older it started getting a wee tot of brandy as well. Enhanced boat coffee.

    Well, Iím almost glad my gran didnít live to witness this outrage.

    First the Uniteds (blue originals and the oranges) and now the Breakaways. Proper staples of trips to my granís.

    They just need to get rid of glass bottles of Irn Bru, tins of Heinz tomato soup, plain white bread, strawberry tarts from Baynes and coal fires and thatís it all gone.
