With last year's move from CBS to family-friendly Disney-owned ABC, the revised casting of the past few years to include both Hadid sisters along with Kendall Jenner to strut down the runway, the sell-by date expiring for Adriana Lima, and the ever-lowering target age skewing of musical acts to provide so-called "musical entertainment", the eventual outcome was clear.
Today's product is not the same as your grandfather's Old spice. The original formula is no more. Doesn't smell or last the same. Proctor & Gamble bought Shulton in 1990.
And as of 2016 Fox's U-Bet chocolate syrup (which is the only chocolate syrup certified for use in a NY egg cream) is no longer made by the 5-generation company founded in 1895 by the Fox family from Brooklyn, but rather is now owned by Gold's Pure Foods which is one of the food companies owned by the Westminster Foods conglomerate, which is just one of the holdings of the LaSalle Capital Holding equity company. And the original formula is no more. Doesn't taste or pour the same.
All things must change, seemingly always for the worst.
