Massive pastille scandal: hold all other news

Sleuth is driven Rowntree bend

Massive pastille scandal: hold all other news

Sleuth sat down to tuck into one of his favourite guilty pleasures this week, fruit pastilles.

Rowntree’s have recently released their ‘Randoms’ range and Sleuth can’t help wonder if this is a ruse to cover-up to their consistency inefficiencies.

Opening the packet out to allow easy-snaffling access, he was horrified to find a hideous lack of consistency in the ratios of each colour.

Sleuth is strictly systematic in his approach to eating fruit pastilles, eating the least favoured colours first, saving the best until last.

The order goes as follows – orange, yellow, purple, red then green.

Imagine Sleuths dismay when opening out the packet when out of 15 pastilles, there were no fewer than seven purple and just two green.

While it’s true that purple are mid-range in Sleuth’s hierarchy of enjoyment, it does not excuse Rowntree’s disregard for consistency.

Sleuth was lucky this time, but imagine his dismay if he opened a packet to find seven oranges? Everybody is different so imagine the emotional turmoil of someone else getting this packet, someone who, for example, favoured the purples least?

And what of the reds?

Not one solitary one. It’s a disgrace.

What if they were Sleuth’s favourites?

Rowntree’s have recently released their ‘Randoms’ range and Sleuth can’t help wonder if this is a ruse to cover-up to their consistency inefficiencies.

Is nothing sacred?

(Sleuth is aware in a world of sorrow and pain, where tragedy runs amok amongst the innocents, that this may seem an unbelievably small and peripheral issue. In that case have you seen how much coverage football gets, talk about peripheral? And in any case Sleuth had been so looking forward to his pastille pastime proceding untrammeled by worry of any kind.)
