Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
According to BuzzFeed News, Mr Gove was attending a roundtable meeting with individuals from the Food and Drink Federation when he was informed of the likelihood of the country running out of the popular confectionery.

As they explained to Mr Gove, two of the ingredients that are used to make Mars bars are imported and only take a few days to go off.

Therefore, should food imports be barred from entering the UK via the port of Dover in the event of a no-deal Brexit, Mars will be prevented from making the chocolate bar.

This could then lead to the country running out of all Mars bars in as little as two weeks.

Well Mars is the God of war... and the UK will run out of ammunition or negotiating leverage fast in a no deal scenario... The rest of the EU will survive just fine without Mars bars.
