The Downsizing of Snickers
Will this downsizing of Snickers have an impact on your life?
RIP The Large Snickers Bars!
The end is near! Beware chocolate lovers of the world that change is coming to your store shelves in 2013! Stock up now and freeze your candies!
The maker of that all time favorite candy bar, Snickers is going to reduce the size of that favorite snack of person's around the world! Mars will be reducing their candy bars to hit the 250 calorie mark.
Therefore, I wondered what the statistics of the current Snickers bar is, so I bought one out of the corner store on the way home. The bar I bought was a two ounce version with a whopping 280 calories. So, what does a downsizing mean? Well, this particular candy bar will be reduced by 11 percent to reach that goal set by Mars of 250 calories.
I ate the Snickers of course, after all, they will become rare in this size much to soon for me. Five healthy bites. (I was hungry!) So, 11 percent reduction in size means I will lose about one half of a healthy bite. I remember when candy bars were advertised as a source of instant energy. I wonder if this will affect my overall performance as I do my daily duties? Will I fall in overall productivity due to this "major" change? Only time will tell. 2013 is in the not too distant future!
Now we look at the King Size Snickers bar that comes in at 540 calories. Well, according to Mars, no more King Size bars! The candy bars will be placed in bags in various amounts of the new 250 calorie bars. So you can get the same number of calories, for about the same amount of money, but you will have to open several bars to do so.
Of course this is a "healthy" choice that Mars is making to help us control our waistlines. That is a good thing beings I assume that Mars thinks that we adults have absolutely no control over our body size and that this ploy will make people be healthier and lose weight.
Mars is not telling how the candy bars will change. They may "slim" down but stay the same length, or be thicker but shorter.
At least Mars is not messing around with that great flavor of the candy bars. The ingredients and recipe will remain the same.
Already, other candy manufactures have made this move ahead of Mars, however, I love Snickers overall, so this has a great impact on me! I hope I will be able to sleep tonight!
So, we learn that 2012 is not the end of the world as we know it, but according to the maker of my Snickers, 2013 is that end.
