Milky Way product taken off UK shelves as angry shoppers start petition to reinstate chocolate treat
A petition has been launched to bring the treat back and has already attracted more than 1,700 signatures
Chocolate lovers have been left fuming after discovering a popular treat has been taken off supermarket shelves.
Milky Way Crispy Rolls will reportedly no longer be available to buy in the UK, leaving many of its fans disappointed.
As a result of the news, a petition has been launched to bring back the Crispy Roll, which are a circular roll of Milky Bar blended with biscuit.
The petition has already attracted more than 1,700 signatures, with that figure continuing to rise.
It 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.
“This product is a very popular product which many people love and it is a nice low calorie snack.
"This product has been around for quite some time and it’s disappointing that after all that time Mars Chocolate has discontinued it from there product range.
“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."
Mars UK, who produce the treat, are yet to comment on whether the Crispy Rolls have been discontinued altogether.
And fans of the product have urged Mars not to make the same mistake as they have done previously.
One person wrote after signing the petition: "I love Crispy Rolls. Mars already ruined my childhood by discontinuing Mars Planets, I implore them not to do it again with Crispy rolls.”
Another said: "I'm fuming about this, they are so moreish and tasty, they should stay!"
