What a time to be alive.
The security measure may stop sticky-fingered thieves from slipping a few Top Decks into their pockets, or snacking between aisles, but it also makes buying the items a huge pain.
Customers are reportedly forced to wait for register attendants to unlock the cases at the counter if they plan on purchasing a block.
If you’ve never bought something from one of those cases, you’ll know the interaction will probably go a little like this:
“Hi. I’d like to buy a $5 block of chocolate.”
“Oh yes, no problem….”
*Turns to the person behind them* “John… John! Do you have a key for this….”
“Key for what?”
“The chocolate boxes.”
“THE CHOCOLATE BOXES.”
Case. In. Point. (Or is it a point in a case?)
Watch: If the security cases proves too much, you can always make these bad boys at home. (Post continues after video.)
Local newspaper The Preston Leader contacted Kmart but were told it could not comment on the matter.
However, it seems Cadbury could, as the company’s official Twitter account responded to the initial photo, posted by reporter Harrison Tippet.
