Sweet Support

Candy, soda, and processed snack companies have been under attack lately. FreedomPop Review, for one, is concerned about how obsessed with sugar these companies have made the population. Some companies have even switched to using more addictive sugar substitutions. After some time though, it was determined that sugar substitutes can even be more harmful than regular sugar. There are some candy companies who have recently made statements on the sugar frenzy. Instead of buying into it, they actually want consumers to limit their sugar intake! Mars, Inc. is responsible for candy products such as M&Ms, Snickers, and Milky Way. They are, without a doubt, one of the heavy hitters in the candy industry. This popular company has recently made a statement regarding added sugar and the safety regulations behind it. The company has come to fully support the United States government and their effort to label added sugar products appropriately. Back in 2008, the World Health Organization lobbied to make candy companies responsible for telling consumers just how much added sugar was in their products. Not only did these companies refuse to label products that contained added sugar, they supported politicians who threatened to stop the funding of the W.H.O. With their budget on the line, the W.H.O. backed down. They spent the next few years trying to find substantial evidence as to why they should warn consumers of sugar concerns. Mars, Inc. has just made it a little easier for the W.H.O. Mars has always been a forward thinking company; with their statement on added sugar content and labeling, the W.H.O. is hoping other companies follow suit.
