Just Say No to Fake Chocolate!
A Concerned and Well-Informed Reader emailed Crabby with a tip about this shocking new development in the world of tasty confections:
"Big candy and food makers such as Hershey and Nestle are lobbying the Food and Drug Administration to let them substitute vegetable oil and whey for two of chocolate's key ingredients and still call their products "chocolate.""
The San Jose Mercury News (along with other Big Newspapers that aren't as fun to link to) has the story.
What can you do to prevent this outrage? If you're a bit less lazy than Crabby, go here where candy blogger and playwright Cybele May is organizing resistance to this nefarious conspiracy.
