Nestlé has announced it's discontinuing a childhood favourite. 

After about 60 years, Animal Bars are about to be removed from shop shelves for good.

The iconic chocolate bar, which features moulds of your favourite animals and puzzles on the wrapper, are to be scrapped by Nestlé.

The company has said it's 'due to the low performance of the product and a decline in sales'.

The announcement has, unsurprisingly, caused huge upset online, as people are taking to social media to express their feelings on the news.

The bars had received scrutiny in recent years, along with Freddos, as customers saw the price increasing dramatically and quickly.

Originally, you could buy an Animal Bar for around 10p, but in recent years we've seen them hit lose to €1.

The company broke the news following its announcement that it 'll also be scrapping the infamous Caramac.

"We are very sorry to disappoint fans of Caramac," they said.

"There has been a steady decline in its sales over the past few years and unfortunately we had to make the difficult decision to discontinue it.

"We know fans will be disappointed to see it go, but this change will enable us to focus on our best-performing brands, as well as develop exciting new innovations to delight consumers' tastebuds."

In an update, the company told Sky News Animal Bar is also being discontinued "due to the low performance of the product and a steady decline in its sales over the past few years".

We're not sure exactly when you'll see your last Animal Bar in stores, so you better grab one while you can!
