  • Cocoa prices are lower than they were six months ago and sugar prices are about the same. Most of the stuff soup is made from (sewage and the skin from chicken bolloxs) has also fallen in the last six months. The oil needed to package and transport the stuff has also recently fallen in price. Did the Beeb interview an executive who has just come out of a coma?
