Fears Maltesers Are Changing Shape

Share this article


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.'
