It’s 135g powder (or 125, I can’t remember which lol) which for a £7 fountain is outstanding I have to say :)
Is this years Enchanted the same as previous seasons Sparkling Treasure? Looking at Dcossi's vid the old Sparkling Treasure seems to be marked at 170g NEC?

They seem to be shaving off the powder here and there. Did you see the vid on the loud and clear shot tubes going from 14.8g to 12.2g this year from last.

It might be a way theyre off setting price rises? They seem to be one of the brands that haven't gone up by much this year

The tiny Garden Delights selection box last year was a decent 167g, I'm now wondering what the replacement Magic will come in at. Not super important, they are just a bit of fun, but interesting to know.

The wee Magic box has 114.8g of powder so quite a bit less than the Garden Delights :eek:

The double whammy are a lot bigger than I was expecting. Looking forward to trying those out, those and 2 of the Enchanted fountains for £25 you can’t really moan.

Oh the take a ticket system has been scrapped already in our store and the staff are happy f you just ask for what you want like most stores work :)

That's sad. If I like a product, I'd rather it increased on price than decrease in quality
Trouble is their target market wouldn't view it in the same way, most people aren't interested in NEC, they just want a cheap box for their garden. From a business point of view TNT have done the right thing by keeping the prices down

Loads? I swear only 2 people have got them ;) not sure though because there Double the price of the single ones
I can think of 3 without even looking, i'm sure there's more :D NEC is a good way to tell, for £15 you get 200g, with the single ones (from asda) you get about 180g so they're slightly better in that way

Can see what your saying but haven't got a clue what NEC means when I seen it on other posts I was thinking like NFC ha:(
