It’s a sad day for everyone who grew up treating on these little legends:
Woolworths and Coles have axed Starburst from their shelves. Woolworths quietly turned their back on Starburst Fruit Chews back in 2015 while Coles have only just more recently made the decision to stop stocking Starburst due to poor sales.
Coles confirmed the news in response to a concerned Starburst fan on Facebook. “Unfortunately we can confirm that Starburst varieties have been removed from our national range. We understand how frustrating it can be to see a favourite product disappear from the shelf and we can assure you that this decision is not one made lightly.”
All hope is not lost, however. A Change.org petition calling for Coles and Woolworths to restock Starburst has already garnered more than 1000 signatures. If you want to join the fight to bring back Starburst, sign HERE.
