Christmas gift for the ladies

Hey Gritbaileys.jpg,

Talking about expensive christmas gifts, here is one for the ladies. In one of our local supermarkets, (which are meant to promote cheaper prices) they are offering a gift, which comprises of a mini-miniature, (yes it IS smaller than miniature!) bottle of Irish cream liquor with a cheap glass. Packaged this way, the cost per litre for the liquor is £80 ($160).  

Now, you might not consider that expensive. However, when you consider that you can buy a litre of that same liquor (without the cheap glass admittedly) at under £9 ($18), this puts a very different complexion on it. I appreciate that there are economies of scale, but don’t you think someone is creaming off excess profits here?
