With the current obesity problem in America, it seems like candy companies are trying to help out by decreasing serving sizes.
Mars chocolate bars, including Snickers, Milky Ways, and 3 Musketeers, are all going to have 250 calories or less by 2013, the company announced.
NPR reports that this doesn't mean chocolate or caramel with less calories; bars will just be smaller to encourage sharing and saving, a spokesperson said.
This means that king-sized bars (capping at 540 calories) are getting nixed, and certain bars are going to get a new size (either shorter or skinnier).
Fans of M&Ms and Twix can rest easy, however; those standard sizes fall within the 250-calorie range. The rest of us chocolate lovers will just have to savor each candy bar a little more.
