Shoppers are worried about the disappearance of some of their old favorites from the supermarket candy aisle.

Australian shoppers have noticed Bounty chocolate bars “disappearing” from stores in recent months and are concerned the confectionery product has been discontinued.

The missing Bounty bars continue a “worrying trend” of iconic candy purchases disappearing, behind popular Allen’s chocolate and beloved Five Flavors Lifesavers.

However, a Mars Wrigley spokesperson confirmed that while Bounty was experiencing a manufacturing issue, the popular coconut chocolate will be back in supermarkets in mid-June.

“Our much-loved Bounty isn’t going anywhere, however, due to capacity constraints at our factory in Europe, Australian consumers may be experiencing stock shortages in some areas of the country,” a spokesperson told FEMAIL.

‘Every time I go to Coles or Woolies, I can never find them. I went to Big W and the only area they had them was in the concession stands at the registers. Are they being discontinued or something?’

Some recommended alternatives.

“Sorry for being cliché and recommending Aldi, but Aldi’s versions are good and made in Europe so you get good chocolate,” said one.

‘Whittaker’s Coconut Chocolate!’ another exclaimed.

One woman shared that she started making them at home.

‘You can make your own with three ingredients: condensed milk, grated coconut and melted chocolate. It tastes the same.
