The makers of celebrations, Mars Wrigley, have stated that they have kept the Bounty thus far due to the chocolate’s die hard following but despite this, they have partially opted to listen to the masses this year with the limited edition box, which won’t have a single Bounty in sight.

The limited edition tubs will be sold in a select number of stores and pop-ups in the UK and will feature the classic Mars, Snickers, Milkyway, Galaxy, with the beloved Maltesers being introduced as a replacement to the missing Bountys.
