After Caramac Cancelled, Animal Bars Extinct

Earlier this week, Caramac lovers were said to be devastated after Nestlé confirmed it is discontinuing the sweet. The caramel flavour chocolate bar was launched more than 60 years ago and was a distinctive brand thanks to its eye-catching red and yellow wrapper. In a statement, Nestlé said: ‘We know fans will be disappointed to see it go, but this change will enable us to focus on our best-performing brands, as well as develop exciting new innovations to delight consumers’ taste buds.’

But today there is even more bad news for chocolate lovers.  Nestle has made the decision to axe the Animal Bar – leaving fans of the iconic chocolate bar shocked and distressed. The much-loved Animal Bar has been delighting children for over fifty years. It was first manufactured in 1959, and originally sold by Mackintosh’s under a different name until rebranding in 1963. A Nestle spokesperson said today: ‘I can confirm that Animal Bar is also being delisted due to the low performance of the product and a steady decline in its sales over the past few years.’

Caramac and Animal Bars now join other long lost confectionary like Astros, Aztec, Bar Six, Dream, Fry’s Five Centres, Galaxy Swirls, Mars Delight , Mars Planets, Mint Wispa, Nuts About Caramel, Terry’s Pyramint, Time Out, Toffos, Trio and Vice Versa. How many of these do you remember?
