Question: what if Hershey went from using cocoa butters in their chocolate to using vegetable fats and artificial sweeteners?
That’s what might happen. They’re asking the Food and Drug Administration to change the standards in which chocolate is made and classified, to “modernize” the making of chocolate. Hershey isn’t the only company asking the question, it’s everyone.
This is sacrilege! We all know that chocolate, even when its high in fat and calories, has a lot of health benefits too. And if people want to have diet chocolate or a chocolate substitute, there are plenty of products already on the market. Changing the taste of Hershey chocolate would be like changing America, damn it!

Ok, this has gotten completely out of hand! Now I’ll be one of the first to admit that many Americans need to adjust their eating habits and maybe cut back on the fast food, fat and grease, sugar intake, etc. but come on! Don’t mess with the chocolate! People need to learn moderation! Start exercising, learn to moderate the intake of things that are “bad for you”, get on some diet pills prescribed by your doctor, whatever works … but don’t mess with the chocolate!
Some men have just got to learn the hard way I suppose — take a woman’s chocolate and she gets mean! :evil:
