THE DEATH OF CHOCOLATE

So the FDA is considering making it so that
chocolate won't actually mean chocolate anymore.

Basically, this is the gist of it: chocolate has two basic ingredients - cocoa and cocoa butter. Up to now, in order to be considered, and entitled "chocolate", there must be those two ingredients in the mix. Otherwise, it has to be called "chocolate-flavored" or something that effect.

But now, the FDA may make it so that, if, say, Hershey's decides to make a candy bar with no cocoa and no cocoa butter in it, it will be okay to call it chocolate. Instead of cocoa and cocoa butter, by the way, vegetable fat or some other lesser ingredients will be taking place.

You can protest if you want to, not that it's going to do much good.


Or read more about what is going on here.

And if you want to contact Hershey's, you can do it here.

Not that they will give a crap! The only way they will care is if this affects their sales. I am hereby banning Hershey's chocolate, and I encourage you all to do the same.

Kind of makes you wonder just what the FDA is for, anyway?

Oh, yeah...to help corporations lie to consumers.
