Fears Maltesers Are Changing Shape
The company that makes Malteasers has denied reports it's changing the shape of the sweets.
It had been claimed the chocolate balls would become button-like in shape, in a bid to stop falling sales.
Details of the rumoured change were leaked during preparations for an upcoming ad campaign.
A source that went to audition told The Sun: 'We were told the Maltesers we would be holding would be flat — like a Minstrel. We were not given the chocolate but it was described to us.
However, a Mars spokesperson said: 'We are not planning to change the shape of the much-loved original Maltesers, however we are continually looking at ways to extend the brand, creating new ways for our customers to enjoy Maltesers.'
