2016 has been a god awful year. First David Bowie and Alan Rickman died, then Brexit and Donald Trump happened, and to make matters worse all our chocolate keeps getting smaller.

Toblerone caused a stink when they shrunk their classic bar recently, and now Maltesers have got in on the act by making their bags 15% smaller without telling anyone.

As one eagle eyed shop assistant revealed on Twitter, the company has been reducing the size of their products without us even noticing.

While the price of Malteser bags have remained the same, the 121g pack has now been reduced to 103g – a drop of 14.8%.

 

The same has happened with Galaxy Counters too, and it’s got people pretty angry on social media.

A spokesperson for parent company Mars told The Mirror: “Like all chocolate manufacturers, we have seen the cost of raw materials rise and, while we try to absorb these pressures as much as possible, sometimes we have to make the difficult decision to reduce the size of some of our products so our consumers can continue to enjoy an affordable treat.

“Our focus is always on offering consumers our great tasting, high quality chocolate brands at the best value for money.”

God dammit, stop shrinking our chocolate!
