Chocowhat?

Many folks know I'm a chocoholic.

Good thing I try to stick to dark chocolate more often than not these days, as apparently many of Hershey's candies no longer contain chocolate at all, but vegetable oil instead. (Um... eww!)

What's worse is, their labels have barely changed, so many won't notice the difference until they actually buy these products. What was once "chocolate" is now "chocolaty," "chocolate candy" or the like. More than a little deceptive, I'd say.

Last year, Hershey, Nestle, and several other big chocolate brands tried to get the FDA to allow them to package their fake chocolate as "chocolate," but thankfully consumer outrage convinced the FDA otherwise. Unfortunately, some of these brands are still going through with the product change. I'm sure others will do the same, given time, so be sure to read those ingredients!

You can read more about this in this article.

As for now, no more Hershey's for me!
