People Are Losing Their S**t Because They Got A Bounty In Their Advent Calendar

It also means that millions of people up and down the country will be rushing downstairs each morning to open the doors of their advent calendar for a brief moment of surprise and a lovely chocolate.

It's a simple pleasure, but one that people take very seriously it would seem.

There has been widespread outrage among people who have bought Mars' Celebrations advent calendars this year. Upon opening the very first day of their advent calendar thins morning they were greeted by - wait for it - a Bounty bar.

Fear not, Bounty fans, you are not alone.

The question remains: does Mars know what it has unleashed on the world? Is this just a piece of top trolling? Does it even matter?

A spokesperson from Mars Wrigley Confectionery UK told LADbible: "Every year we enjoy seeing the debates rage about the nation's favourite Celebrations. We've been doing some of our own polling to find out more, so watch this space..."
