Celebrations has removed Bounty bars from some of its boxes this Christmas – and the move has divided shoppers.
The move comes as part of a trial to see if shoppers want to get rid of Bountyâs permanently.Â
But many chocolate lovers have taken to social media to express their anger at the decision, while others have happily wished the coconut-flavoured chocolate adieu.Â
One person Tweeted: âWhoever decided to take Bountyâs out of Celebrations boxes is a genius, what a game changer.â
Another pleased shopper said: âA tub of Celebrations with no Bounty? Best news Iâve heard in a while.â
One person said: âYou must be a very sick person if you still want Bounty in the Celebrations box, good riddance.â
But there were a lot of people who were upset, even furious, with the news.
One person said: “Bounty removed from Celebrations? There’ll be a mutiny over that!”
Another angry Tweeter said: âGood morning to everyone except the person who decided to remove Bountyâs from a tub of Celebrations.â
A third disappointed customer said: âYou [Bounty] didnât deserve this. The true underdog.â
This isn’t the first time Bounty has caused controversy.
In 2020, shoppers were fuming after finding Bounty bars were behind the doors of the Celebrations advent calendar for the first and second day.
Then, in 2021, Mars Wrigley offered to swap unwanted Bounty chocolates for a more-loved Malteser after Christmas.
Even Quality Street divided opinions amongst the chocolate-loving community.
Earlier this year, Nestle revealed that tubs of Quality Street were changing forever as it introduced recyclable packaging for the sweets, axing the iconic shiny wrappers.
Last month, The Sun revealed that tubs this year could be missing one of four popular flavours – fudge, toffee penny, caramel swirl and chocolate block.
While some shoppers may find an extra orange crunch in their tubs.
