What is the petition and how can I sign it?

One Crispy Roll fan is so distraught by the discontinuation of the sweet treat that they have started a petition calling on Mars Wrigley UK to bring it back - and it’s been signed by more than 1,500 people.

The petition, started on Change.org, is called Bring Back The Mars Milky Way Crispy Rolls and has been started by a person called Jack Taylor.

The petition reads: “This product has been around for quite some time and it’s disappointing that after all that time Mars Chocolate has discontinued it from their 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.

“This is a product that I really enjoyed buying and I want people to sign this petition so that we can hopefully get this product in production again.”

At the time of writing, 1,787 people have signed the petition.

Spokespeople for B&M and the Co-Op told the Sun that they no longer stock them.

They are not available to buy online at a range of supermarkets including Tesco and Sainsbury’s. They are also out of stock on Amazon.

They are still listed on the Poundland website, but stock is not available to buy online so shoppers will have to visit their local store to see if any are available.

The multipack box of five does, however, still appear to be available to buy on the Co-op website for £1.30 a box.

You’ll have to be quick if you want to be in with a chance of getting some though as demand is likely to be high for any remaining packs.
