See, my point is, I don't accept that there's that kind of difference. All
there is
is a nicer box. And no-one's put forward a real argument for there being a
significant benefit for users. The old cake recipe isn't mouldy, and no
how you package the new one, if it means I have to spend time and money
getting it, and then work out how to slice it differently when I have a
good cake in my cake tin at home... hey, it's still cake. I'm happy.
