Caramac bars are being confined to the confectionery scrapheap – 15 sweet (over)reactions
The humble Caramac bar will soon be consigned to the scrapheap of confectionery history, along with Spangles, Toffos and Mingles. Other much-missed sweets are unavailable.
The BBC broke the bad news.

The caramel-flavoured bar, which was created by Mackintosh 64 years ago (Caramel Mackintosh – Caramac) hasn’t been easy to come by for many years, with some people assuming that it had already been discontinued.
Others, however, were devastated.
Thanks, four people in our office are in tears

324,459 people have signed the petition to reverse the decision to stop making Caramac bars.
Only 74 Caramac bars have been sold in the past month.
You couldn’t make it up.

In primary school my mum gave me a caramac easter egg to give to my teacher. Egg made of caramac and a caramac bar. I ate all of it on the walk in and was violently sick when I got to school. Goodbye old friend.

No one has ever bought a Caramac. It’s the Basingstoke of chocolate. It almost doesn’t exist. https://t.co/4GyaAixUWL

Without wishing to overreact or indulge in hyperbole, Nestlé scrapping Caramac is worse than Stalin.

Take a trip down memory lane with this classic Caramac advert.
Oh no! Does this mean we'll never see another advert for Caramac again? pic.twitter.com/A61xRGDBVN
