We might have lamented the price increase, but we never wanted this.

Ireland is in mourning as one of the most nostalgic chocolate bars at our disposal, Animal Bars, are officially being discontinued.

Scenes of heartbreak and pandemonium are sweeping the chocolate world by storm with this desperate news.

The chocolate bar, adored by children and adults alike, was originally launched back in 1963 and included a fun game for all the family inside the wrapper.

Sadly however, Nestle have said that sales have been steadily declining for the chocolate bar and have revealed that soon they will be gone from our shelves forever.

I guess we didn’t know how much we needed Animal Bars until they were taken away from us.

Animals bars aren’t the only chocolate to be discontinued this week; Nestle also confirmed that Caramac bars will soon disappear from shelves too with the following statement:

“Unfortunately we had to withdraw Caramac from our range as sales were relatively low. It was a difficult decision for us because we’re proud of all our products and don’t like to disappoint our consumers.

“We hope you can understand why we took this decision.”
