SHOPPERS have been left “dribbling at the mouth” after a major supermarket slashed the price of the UK’s second favourite chocolate.

The fan favourite Galaxy Smooth Milk bar has had its price halved in Tesco stores across the UK.

The bar’s price has been reduced from £3.99 down to £2 placing the 360g morsel among some of the cheaper chocolate in the country.

The 360g size is the larger size, over three times as big as 100g smaller bar.

If you’re hoping to nab one of these giant bars it is important to note that the deal is only open to Tesco Clubcard holders.

That prices it at 56p for 100g of the sweet goodness.

The Galaxy is so popular that a Co-op in Cambridge put the bar within plastic security cases.

Retailers will typically lock up high-risk or expensive items like razors or alcohol to clamp down on theft.

Fans posted about the great deal online.

One said: “I’m dribbling at the mouth even though I’m full haha.”

Anther said: “Thank you for posting this! Tesco’s ticket said £3.50 but we’re £2!!”

While a third posted: “If you can get hold of them. Out of stock in St Helens.”

The smaller sized Smooth Milk chocolate bar has also been reduced in size by maker Mars.

The bar has gone from 110g to 100g and costs up to £1.50.

Mars blamed the shrinkflation on the rising costs of raw materials and operations.

The discounted chocolate bar news comes after the retailer left customers fuming over a major change that has cost them Clubcard points.

Tesco recently axed a survey site that rewarded customers with Clubcard points and a chance to win a £1,000 voucher.

‘Never miss out again’ savvy shopper shares how to ‘read’ Tesco’s secret label codes to bag the best deals

In-store shoppers used to be given receipts urging them to visit tescoviews.com, to be in with the chance of winning a gift card, as well as earning an extra 25 Clubcard points.

But this week disappointed shoppers noticed that the retailer is no longer accepting survey responses through the site.

A notice at the address says it is instead reaching out directly to customers for their opinions, and it’s understood this will now be done via email. 

What can I get with Tesco Clubcard?

Tesco’s Clubcard scheme allows shoppers to earn points as they shop.

These points can then be turned into vouchers for money off food at the supermarket, or discounts at other places like restaurants and days out.

Each time you spend £1 in-store and online, you get one point when you scan your Clubcard.

Drivers using the loyalty card get one point for every two litres spent on fuel.

One point equals 1p, so 150 points gets you a £1.50 money-off voucher, for example.

You can double their worth when you swap them for discounts with “reward partners”.

For example, £12 worth of vouchers can be swapped for a £24 three-month subscription to Disney+.

Or you can swap 50p worth of points for £1 to spend at Hungry Horse pubs.

Where you can spend them changes regularly, and you can check on the Tesco website what’s available now.

Tesco shoppers can also get Clubcard prices when they have the loyalty card.

The discounted items change regularly and without a Clubcard you’ll pay a higher price.

These Clubcard prices are usually labelled on shelves, along with the non-member price.

But it’s worth noting that just because it’s discounted doesn’t necessarily make it the cheapest around, and you should compare prices to find the best deal.

You can sign up to get a Tesco Clubcard in store or online via the Tesco website.
