Bad news for Celebrations fans as March confirms Advent calendars won’t return this Christmas


As Advent calendars begin to appear on supermarket shelves, shoppers might notice that one of the most popular is missing.

This year, Mars announced that the much-loved Advent Calendar of celebrations will not be returning.

The festive countdown has proven to be a big hit with fans over the past few years.

It features favorites like Galaxy, Twix, Maltesers, and Snickers – as well as Bounty, an offering that divides many chocolate fans.

Some fans were bitterly disappointed last year when they discovered the Bounty chocolates behind the first two doors of the Celebrations Advent Calendar.

Fortunately, those who can’t wait to get their fix of the celebrations can still get jars and boxes of Yuletide’s popular goodies.

Mars also makes Galaxy and Malteser Advent calendars, both of which will be back on shelves this year.

They are available for purchase at supermarkets such as Tesco, Morrisons, Iceland, and Waitrose.

In addition, Lidl has just announced a new range of melting puddings, exclusively for Christmas.

Buyers can get their hands on two deals – one featuring a center of silky Belgian chocolate and the other bursting with salted caramel.

The Party Puds are on sale now, priced at £ 5.99 each.
