​Celebrations Changes Advent Calendar After People Said They 'Ruined' Christmas

The folk at Mars have changed the format for this year's Celebrations advent calendar, following feedback from disappointed chocolate fans last year.

We all know what it's like to open up a tub of chocolates and find there are hardly any of our favourites, but copious amounts of the ones no one likes.

Well, it turns out the same applies to advent calendars, as last year many people were miffed to open up the first door to find a miniature of one of the world's most controversial chocolate bars: the Bounty.

Oh, and then on day two, the same happened again, prompting many to claim the whole debacle had 'ruined Christmas'.

Further down the line, others were dismayed to find they'd had to wait 12 days to reach a Maltesers, the top tier chocolate of the Celebrations world.

Now Celebrations has said its team have 'listened' and 'learnt' from what happened in 2019, making amends by popping everyone's favourite behind door one for the new version this year.

"We've listened, we've learnt, we've changed!" Celebrations tweeted.

"You wanted Maltesers behind door number 1 this year... we got ya! Enjoy the nation's favourite Celebrations chocolate!"

One person commented to say they didn't know there had been 'national outrage last year' and 'just ate it without thinking', but another Twitter user filled them in, writing: "Dude. They double Bountied us (day 1 and 2) last year. It was a sick joke."

Someone else begged: "Just don't put Bounty in at 24. #NoMoreBounty."

Another didn't see what all the fuss was about, writing: "I don't understand the hate for a Bounty. Love them little guys."

Last year's double Bounty drama created quite the stir - which is something Celebrations leant right into, refusing to apologise for what is actually (I think, anyway) a pretty delicious product.

A series of Bounty memes and messages appeared on the official Celebrations Twitter account, including a photo of two Bountys captioned: "Name a more iconic duo. We'll wait..."

Another showed a family sitting down to their festive lunch, with a huge Bounty sitting in a roasting dish in the foreground.

"What's Christmas dinner without the main ingredient?" the tweet said.

Another post saw the word 'LOL' written in Bountys.
