You Can Now Buy Maltesers By The Bucketload

Maltesers have always been known as “the lighter way to enjoy chocolate” – but that could be about to change.

That’s because Mars, the company behind the brand, has just unveiled a new addition to the range: giant, half kilo buckets of Maltesers.

These giant tubs of chocolatey goodness are perfect for any occasion, whether it’s a picnic, dinner party, or a night, spent indoors, on your own, watching Netflix and wondering where it all went wrong.

So long considered the most lightweight of sweet treats, this could be your chance to settle the eternal debate: just how many Maltesers can one person physically consume?

Coming in at well over 14 times the size of the standard 37g bags of Maltesers, each giant tub contains well over 2,600 calories.

They don’t come particularly cheap either, owing to the fact that these buckets are only available in the US at present.

Each 520g ‘party bucket’ costs a whopping £38.56 on Amazon, including delivery.

It might just be easier to buy 14 individual bags and a cheap bucket.

Then again, you are likely to attract a few odd looks doing that.
