Packs of ten of the 21g treats are being sold at some shops for £2 — as are nine-packs of the standard 33.8g bars.

It means shoppers are getting nearly a third less of their favourite treats for the same money.

Chocolate fan Ed Davis, 36, an electrician from Great Barford, Beds, said: “I hadn’t noticed the change when we bought them but I ate it in two bites quicker than normal and was puzzled.

“I compared the packs. What a con. They were snack bars anyway. They are more like fun-size bars now.”

Meanwhile, another miffed consumer wrote online: “Even less product for the same price and sooner or later the standard size will get quietly abolished.”

And another wrote: “A Mars bar used to keep the hunger at bay until tea time. Now you’d need at least three.”

A spokesman for Mars said: “This new range is for consumers who want a sweet treat but in a smaller portion size.”
