Candy Bars Get A Makeover
NEW YORK (AP) - Snickers bars may soon satisfy you a bit less.
Mars Inc., the makers of popular candy brands including M&M's and Twix, says it will stop making chocolate products that exceed 250 calories by the end of next year.
That means king-sized versions of the company's chocolate bars will disappear from candy aisles. For king-size shoppers who like to get the most chocolate out of their purchase, Mars will replace the big bars with bags of two to four smaller bars to "enable sharing or saving a portion for later."
The privately-held company also makes Milky Way, Bounty, 3Musketeers, and Kudos bars.
A representative from Mars was not available to provide details on its calorie goals. But in an emailed statement, the company maintained that it has shown a "broad -based commitment to health and nutrition" in recent years.
