Chocolate lovers wonder why the ‘X-rated veins’ on the Snickers bar are removed 

Outraged Snickers fans learn the fate of iconic ‘X-rated veins’ on their favourite chocolate bar after photo of a completely SMOOTH one went viral

  • Snickers has responded to rumours the ‘vein’ has been removed from bar
  • Chocolate lovers slammed cancel culture after seeing a vein-free Snickers
  • The chocolate bar will keep its vein, according to the official Snickers account 

The team at Snickers have revealed the caramel ‘veins’ will remain on the chocolate bars after a photo of a completely smooth one went viral.

The swirls on the top of the bars were dubbed ‘X-rated’ by many who likened them to a male appendage – and when a photo of a smooth bar took the internet by storm many thought cancel culture had finally gone too far.

But Mars, the company behind the Snickers brand, say the rumours are completely false.

‘Good news, contrary to what’s trending on Twitter, the veins remain,’ it posted alongside a photo of a veiny chocolate bar.

The original Tweet may have gone unnoticed and the rumours could have fizzled out if it wasn’t for a one-off photo showing a completely smooth bar.

‘Who took the d*ck vein out of Snickers,’ the original post read.

‘I am disgusted, I am shocked, I need to be alone right now,’ one man said.

Another man shared a picture of his ‘basically smooth’ Snickers.

‘What is happening in the world that we have to take the veins out,’ he said.

‘Never thought I’d say this but I’m not eating a smooth Snickers candy bar. I want the veins on mine too,’ one man wrote.

‘What they took from us is unforgiveable,’ said another. 

‘I will never buy another one if this is true, I love the vein,’ said one woman. 

Others complained the ‘de-sexualisation’ of ‘the green M&M’ kickstarted the trend to cancel other food products.

Some people were so angry they started petitions to keep the vein. 

While others were amazed that Snickers would reference the veins on their main page, given their commonly used X-rated comparison.

The post was marked by the platform as ‘nudity’ or ‘explicit’ making some chocolate lovers laugh. 

The Tweet clearing up the smooth vs veiny debate was put out on April 20 and already has 47k retweets. 

The brand is known for walking the line with its posts across social media, even alluding to more chocolate bars being eaten at 4.20 than any other time of day.
