Mutiny on the Bounty: Celebrations trial tubs without Bounty bars - full list of Tesco stores taking part

Mars Wrigley is trialling a new No Bounty Celebration tub this festive season in partnership with Tesco - here’s how to get one.

Bounty fans beware, Mars Wrigley has announced that it will be trialling a new No Bounty Celebration tub this festive season. The trial comes as new research has revealed that the smooth coconut-filled chocolates are a national cause of division, with almost half of Brits wanting to banish them from Celebrations tubs altogether.

In response, the confectionery brand has teamed up with Tesco to trial ‘No Bounty tubs’ in the lead-up to the festive season. From November 8, customers in select stores around the UK will be able to exchange Celebration tubs bought in-store with a new No Bounty Celebrations tub, in a business trial that will put this chocolate debate to the test.

Emily Owen, Mars Wrigley’s Head of Celebrations Festive Cheer said: “Christmas is the time for giving – but it seems this year, the British public are keen for us to take away…Bounty. Last year, we gave customers the opportunity to return their unwanted Bounty chocolates.

“Now, off the back of public demand, we’re trialling taking them out of the tub altogether. You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone! And to those loyal (and secret) Bounty lovers out there, there’s still a chance they’ll make a return after the trial.”

For these limited-edition tubs, additional Mars, Snickers, Milkyway, Galaxy and the all-time favourite – Maltesers, will be drafted in to make up for the missing Bounty bars. The announcement comes after 18% of Brits revealed they would feel irritated if they opened a Celebrations tub to find only Bounty’s were left and more than half said it would lead to a family argument.
