A CHOC-WORK ORANGE: THE CLOCK IS TICKING TO GET YOUR HANDS ON ORANGE MALTESERS® BUNNIES

New to 2021, Orange Maltesers® Bunnies have been one of this year’s most a-peeling Easter treat – so much so that there is a nationwide shortage!

Slough, UK, 22nd March 2021 — Mars Wrigley UK has today announced that, after successfully bringing Orange Maltesers® Bunnies to shelves, and mouths, up and down the country, the zesty treat has become so popular that  in many stores, it has almost sold out completely. 

A clear fan favourite, the past few months have seen many of our favourite treats getting an ‘a-peeling’ makeover with the flavour growing a whopping 20% in the last two years. 

Speaking about the potential Easter catastrophe, Mars Wrigley UK’s Chief Easter Officer, Chirag Shah said:  

“You’ve caught us orange handed! We knew that Brits loved the flavour orange, but we never predicted that Easter could be ruined as a result of the nation’s zest for a chocolate treat. While it’s clear our choc-work has paid off, there is now a nationwide shortage of Orange Maltesers® Bunnies. But don’t worry, we’re on a mission to help a lucky few ‘peel’ good and ensure Easter stays fresh!” 

While MALTESERS® Orange Bunny are hopping off shelves that hasn’t stopped Maltesers® from squeezing the day and putting aside an exclusive supply of the chocolate treat. This concentrated effort by the team means that a few lucky Brits will be able to get their hands on some of the last MALTESERS® Orange Bunny just in time for Easter.
