Mars Wrigley’s iconic Starburst lollies discontinued in Australia

Lolly lovers Australia-wide are lamenting the loss of Starburst after Mars Wrigley announced they would no longer be importing the lolly into Australia.

The company announced they made the “difficult decision” to stop importing to Australia due to current supply chain issues.

“Our Starburst products are imported from Europe and like many businesses that are importing products from overseas, the brand has been exposed to supply chain difficulties and rising cost pressures over the last two years,” the spokesperson said.

“After reviewing all options, we’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue the brand in Australia from June 2022.” 

Mars Wrigley said they would be focusing on investing in locally made brands and products.

“As a proud Australian manufacturer for more than 60 years, we are taking this opportunity to prioritise and invest in the brands and products we make locally in Australia such as M&Ms, Maltesers, Skittles, Snickers, Extra, and Eclipse.”
