Psst! Hey! Wanna know what a Chinese Snickers tastes like?

Mars used to make Snickers in Australia (in Ballarat), but for years now they've been importing them from China. The company claims it's just a temporary measure while they refit their factory, but they've been saying that for about half a decade so I dunno how genuine they are. I was out of the country between 2012 and 2017, so I hadn't eaten a Snickers in all that time. When I finally bought one again it was 2018 and I wondered what the hell I was eating. The peanuts were all emulsified and the chocolate tasted like nasty off-brand shit. It was a very unpleasant experience. A quick look revealed a note on the packaging: MADE IN CHINA. Yep, that explained it! Still paid top dollar for the fucking thing because Australia. Yuck. I haven't bought Snickers since. Just one miniscule example of how this country isn't as good as it used to be. Onya, Aussie.
