Chocolate bars come and go from our shelves, but there are some that always live on in our hearts.
From Mars Planets to Quality Street’s Toffee Deluxe to Cadbury’s Snowflake, we all have a favourite we wish we could bite into one more time.
But some people aren’t content with just wishing. In fact, one fan of the Milky Way Crispy Roll were so adamant it make a comeback that they even made their own petition.
In case you need a reminder, the Milky Way Crispy Roll are essentially biscuit wafers encasing a whipped Milky Way filling. Sound pretty dreamy, right?
It turns out Jack isn’t alone in wanting the bar back, either, as thousands of fans have flocked to sign the petition since it launched on Change.org.
“The Milky Way Crispy Rolls are a beloved chocolate product that is produced by Mars UK which is also known as Mars Wrigley UK,” the petition reads.
“Many people might have noticed that this product hasn’t been sold in shops or online shops because it has been discontinued, which is very disappointing.
“I for one would choose the Milky Way Crispy Rolls over other Mars Chocolate products. For example I would rather have a Milky Way Crispy Roll rather than a Milky Way and I’m sure many other people think the same!”
Writing in the comments of the petition, one of the 5,700 people who signed it agreed: “Crispy rolls are better than any other mars product by far”.
Meanwhile, another said: “I love Crispy Rolls. Mars already ruined my childhood by discontinuing Mars Planets, I implore them not to do it again with Crispy Rolls”.
“They were amazing and should not have been discontinued,” wrote somebody else.
Responding to the despair about Mars Wrigley’s decision to discontinue the chocolate bar, a spokesperson told The Sun: “While Milky Way Crispy Rolls are currently in a galaxy far, far away we’re pleased to offer many delicious alternatives such as Milky Way Magic Stars, Maltesers, Mars and, of course, the traditional Milky Way.
“The love for Milky Way Crispy Rolls has been out of this world and we’ve certainly taken note.”
This isn’t the first recent scandal for Mars, which recently came under fire for removing Bounty bars from select tubs of Celebrations.
Absolute outrage ensued, but it’s silly, really, as people will still be able to get normal Celebrations tubs with the coconut filled choccies in place.
The promotion just means there will just be an option to buy ‘No Bounty’ tubs in select Tesco stores from November 8th.
