“Chocolate prices could rise if the UK does not secure a trade deal post-Brexit, according to Mars’ top boss.”
See Chocolate price hike if Brexit deal fails, warns MarsBe still my beating heart! I was aghast to read the headline on the article on BBC. After a few seconds, it dawned on me that they were talking about prices of chocolate in Europe, particularly “Mars Bars”. I can live with that as long as they don’t raise prices here, in Canada. I am old but eating is still something I can enjoy in moderation. Chocolate, nuts, cheese, fruits, vegetables, meat,… I love them all and I resent arbitrary increases in price. UK leaving EU is a silly reason to raise prices but with no trade agreements, that’s what you get, random percentage increases in prices at each border-crossing.
That’s just silly but that’s what Trump wants, to exclude foreign products/services or to tax them. He should go straight to Hell for that. Raising the price of chocolate or anything just because he can is a sin. That’s right up there with murder by the state, confiscation of property and all that. Let’s hope Canadians retain their senses and never fall for that nonsense, and keep importing chocolate and other good things at reasonable prices.
