It took less than a day for the first Christmas controversy to rear its head in December after Mars Incorporated put a Bounty bar behind the first door of their Celebrations advent calendar.

The Bounty is famous in some households for its place as the last to be eaten from a tin of Celebrations, so when chocolate fans opened the first door of their calendar on December 1, Twitter bore the brunt of their disappointment.

It seems not everyone was hoping to kick off the festive season with the taste of paradise…

But it’s important to recognise that there are Bounty fans out there, and in large numbers too.

And plenty offered their services in taking the unwanted Bounty bars in for the winter.

Meanwhile, others commended Mars for their bravery.

And some wondered what would happen should every window contain the taste of coconut?

It doesn’t bear thinking about.
