In the run-up to Christmas, 40 Tesco stores across the UK will be selling limited numbers of “No Bounty” Celebrations boxes. The decision to cull the delicious bite from the trial run comes after a survey found that 39% of us dislike Bounty bars, and follows a scheme last year which allowed customers to return their unwanted Bounty bars for the first time.
