Mars to make all candy bars 250 calories or less
Snickers bars may soon satisfy you a bit less. Mars Inc., the makers of popular candy brands including M&M’s and Twix, 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. The privately-held company also makes Milky Way, 3Musketeers, Bounty and Kudos bars. Mars may not have to make radical changes to reach its goal, however; a standard Snickers bar currently has 280 calories. A package of Twix and a bag of peanut M&M’s each clock in at 250 calories.
