2017 has been delivering all the good luck to make up for last year, but it looks like it has decided to slap us all in the face. 

It's an undeniable fact that chocolate is a gift from the gods.

But our past times of chowing down on a Chomp Bar or seeing how many M&Ms we can fit in our mouth will never be the same again.

Because all those chocolate bars we love oh so bloody much, well, they're pulling a Honey, I Shrunk The Kids! and downsizing... majorly.

We all know by now that Toblerones and Maltesers have downsized, but what we didn't was that all other major confectionary brands are about to follow suit. 

Meaning 'Fun Size' packs are about to be the global standard... 

Times revealed the news, stating that Nestlé, Mars and Mondelez (who own Cadbury) will be bringing in the 20% (or more) change in order to comply with government targets of sugar reduction. 

Many are up in arms about the change, because a) chocolate is amazing, and b) other food products like soda and yoghurt are able to reduce sugar content by using artificial sweeteners, but their fave chocolates are having to reduce the entire size of their products. 

Of course, changing the recipe of our beloved treats might significantly ruin the taste.

Yes, we are pretty bummed by the fact our favourite bars are going to be shrinking by 20% or more... but we should all take a moment to see the plus sides to this. 

The decisions have been made in order to try and aid the global war on sugar and assist in getting a handle on the obesity epidemic continually growing across the world. 

We can only hope that the price of our beloved chocolates will shrink, too.

If all major chocolate companies could please comment on this issue, you know where to find us.
