Scientists have discovered glacier mints are getting smaller.
The enjoyable mints, wrapped with a drawing of polar bear standing on an iceberg, or was it a fox, are likely to disappear altogether within 50 years unless drastic action is taken, according to experts.
"At this rate, the polar bear or the fox will drown," one scientist admitted. "These little mints are glacier thin. It's heartbreaking really."
The news follows revelations that chocolate bars are getting smaller due to rising cocoa prices.
"The simple fact is that most of the chocolate in the world has been mined already," a spokesperson admitted. "We are going back to old mines but it is becoming a lot more expensive to get the stuff out of the ground.
"This is the polo mint all over again. Few can remember a time before the hole."
