Was this a hypocritical statement from a confectionary company?

Mars Inc the chocolate company who produces confections such as snickers, bounty, mars bar, milky way, juicy fruit etc has condemned the notion of a deep-fried mars bar. Mars inc wrote to the creators in Scotland who conceived the novlety of deep fried mars bar and said the product was not authorised and unendorsed.

They claim that "deep-frying one of our products would go against our commitment to promoting healthy, active lifestyles"

Given the products they create do you think this statement was hypocritical and a pot calling kettle black scenario? Or was their objection valid for someone adapting their product into something it wasn't intended to be?

  • Took them long enough to realise. I've tried the fried Snickers about 10 years ago. Gross but its not like Mars inc chocolate is healthy to begin with.

  • Obviously, we are not talking about heath food but it is not unhealthy when eaten in small portions infrequently. This sounds like a publicity ploy to me.

  • It's pure communication, it's like green washing, or nutellla saying that that a slice of bread with 2cm layer of nutella on top of it + a glass of milk is perfectly fine and healthy for your kid.
    They don't want to be associated with obesity diabetes and etc because nowadays you have to be healthy. That's why now in Murrica tomato sauce/ketchup on pizza is considered a vegetable.

  • I think whoever made that statement simply didn't think half a step ahead before they finished it. It comes off as too big of a lack in self-awareness.

  • Not really. Because chocolate isn’t incredibly unhealthy for you. Deep fried mars bars are. I’d only try once but even then I bet it’s extremely addicting.
