Mars knows chocolate sales are nothing to snicker at. The company makes such worldwide favorites as M&M's, Snickers, and the Mars bar. Its other confections include 3 Musketeers, Dove, Milky Way, Skittles, Twix, and Starburst sweets; Combos and Kudos snacks; Uncle Ben's rice; and pet food under the names Pedigree, Sheba, and Whiskas. Mars also provides office beverage services and makes drink vending equipment. The Mars family (including siblings and retired company CEO Forrest Mars Jr., chairman John Franklyn Mars, and VP Jacqueline Badger Mars) owns the highly secretive firm, making the family one of the richest in the US. In 2008 the company acquired the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company.

I think the Glenn Beck crowd, of which I am one, will be in a total uproar. Glenn will need a different snack. Grrrr I guess it will hafta be Hershey’s.
