Australians have hit out at at chocolate giant Mars after discovering some of the nation's most popular chocolate bars are now being made overseas, including in China and Egypt.

Mars - the nation's second largest confectionery manufacturer - has made brands including Maltesers, Twix, M&Ms and Snickers for the Australian market for more than 40 years.

But a Daily Mail Australia investigation has found just three of Mars' products on a standard supermarket shelf now claim to be made Down Under.

Other products say they have been made in China, the Netherlands and tour sapa 2 ngày 1 đêm Egypt - while some would not even specify the country of manufacture.

Twix bars for the Australian market are produced in the African country - where Mars announced they were investing $83million in 2013 to build a production line in Cairo.

It is not known how long the products have been made in overseas countries but eagle-eyed customers made the discovery recently before claiming they tasted nothing like the originals on Facebook.
