Bounty lovers say it's an 'outrage' that they're being banned from Celebrations boxes this Christmas
| Last updated
People are storming social media in support of Bountys after it was revealed the chocolate is getting kicked out the Celebrations carton. Take a look at the outrage:
Haters gonna hate, but Bountys are, by far, one of the best choices in a box of Celebrations.
My declaration of love for the deliciously coconutty bite of delight may be a controversial one, but when I end up sat smugly with a whole handful of extra chocolates because everyone left the Bountys at the bottom of the carton, who's the real winner?
Alas, Celebrations (a collection owned by Mars Incorporated) have listened to the popular opinion of many to temporarily kick the poor Bountys out of the tin, revealing a limited-edition box - sans Bounty - set for release ahead of this Christmas, 2022.
But hell hath no fury like a Bounty lover, with supporters of the coconut goodness having since flooded to Twitter in rage.
One user wrote: "It is an outrage that Bounty is being removed from boxes of Celebrations. Heads should roll for this heinous crime."
Another wrote: "Revolution is in the air: 'They may take our lives, but they will never take our bounty bars!'"
One TikToker has even announced they're going on a hunger strike and only eating Bountys until Mars Wrigley reverts its decision.
Thankfully for Bounty lovers, Mars Wrigley isn't getting rid of the coconut chocolate altogether, as tubs, cartons and tins of the normal Celebrations will still be available alongside the limited-edition box.
However, for those of you who have nothing better to do than hate on an innocent little chocolate, you can get your hands on a tub without Bountys inside from 8 November onwards - the coconut chocolate replaced with extra Mars, Snickers, Milkyway, Galaxy and Maltesers instead.
You'll be able to swap a normal tub for a limited-edition Bounty-less box at select Tesco stores with Christmas Market pop-ups.

A representative for Mars Wrigley told LADbible: "We’d like to assure everyone during what has proven to be a controversial time, that we are monitoring closely all feedback regarding Bounty’s position in the Celebrations tub. The joy of our fans at Christmas time is of the upmost importance to us. At present however, there are no plans to reverse the decision regarding our No Bounty tub trial."
