Is Mars snickering at us?

Yet another downsizing of food portions.

Unlike most companies that silently sneak the change like thieves in the night, Mars came up with a pr campaign touting the change as good for us. The story started on the local news that Mars is healthing up. Those candy bars will now be under 250. But not to worry ... no change to the recipes ... the bars will just be smaller.

Mars is listening to us about our health concerns and giving us what we asked for. Mars cares.

Seriously, how many times do big corporations have to take something away from us and then really believe they can put a positive spin on it and all is well.

The sad thing is that the news team thought it was a great idea. So I guess we are as stupid as Mars thinks.

Personally, if i want a smaller portion, I'll buy a bag of bite-sized snickers. I'm not laughing.
