It's been a stress-filled few days for chocolate fans in Ireland. Everyone has been wondering if Milky Way Crispy Rolls have been discontinued in Ireland.
The writing appeared to be on the wall for the popular snack, as it had been confirmed earlier this week that the Mars product had been shelved in the UK.
We were hoping that Brexit would actually come through for us on this particular matter. However, it seemed inevitable the Crispy Rolls shortage would affect Irish shops too.
Who decided that Milky Way Crispy Rolls were to be cancelled?

Earlier this week a petition was created online to bring back the beloved snack in the UK. After all, what's going to replace it? A Twix? You're having a laugh.
Jack Taylor is the man behind the movement and gives his take on why the chocolate bar should be brought back. He makes some valid points.
Many people might have noticed that this product hasn’t been sold in shops or online shops because it has been discontinued, which is very disappointing. This product is a very popular product which many people love and it is a nice low calorie snack.
This product has been around for quite some time and it’s disappointing that after all that time Mars Chocolate has discontinued it from there product range. I for one would choose the Milky Way Crispy Rolls over other Mars Chocolate products. For example I would rather have a Milky Way Crispy Roll rather than a Milky Way and I’m sure many other people think the same.
With all the commotion over whether Crispy Rolls would be discontinued in Ireland as well, we reached out to Mars for comment:
Unfortunately, Mars has discontinued Milky Way Crispy Rolls in Ireland also. - Mars representative
It's a fairly damning blow to take in the middle of the week. It now joins Mars Delight in the god tier pantheon of snacks that have been discontinued and sent into the abyss.
We hope this is just a nightmare and we can wake up tomorrow and this will all be over. Long live Milky Way Crispy Rolls. You were our only true friend.
