The change in snacking habits means has wiped £25.7million off the market-place’s value as shoppers switch to less calorie-laden cereal bars or varied luxurious biscuits such as Jaffa cakes.
Food giant McVitie’s arose selling the new Digestive Thins with the promise that fans of the routine version of the biscuit would not be disappointed.
