Before you stock up on candy this Halloween, you
should know that candymaker Mars funds deadly
animal experiments even though not one of the
tests is required by law, there are more reliable
human studies and Hershey’s, the company’s top
competitor, has banned all tests on animals.

Mars has funded cruel experiments in which mice
were fed a candy ingredient and forced to swim
in a pool of diluted paint. The mice had to find a
hidden platform to avoid drowning, only to be
killed and dissected later.

In another experiment funded by Mars, experimenters fed rats cocoa and
then collected their blood by injecting a needle
directly into their hearts—a procedure that can
lead to internal bleeding and other deadly
complications.

Mars also supported an experiment
in which baby mice were crammed into small
Plexiglas chambers and submerged for nearly five
hours in chilled water just to see if a chocolate
ingredient affected their breathing rate.

Please don’t buy any of these Mars products
until the company drops its deadly animal tests:
• M&M’S
• SNICKERS
• SKITTLES
• MILKY WAY
• STARBURST
• THREE MUSKETEERS
• TWIX
• DOVE
• M-AZING
• COCOAVIA
• ETHEL M
• LUCAS
• MUNCH

I believe in this to much to let it be unknown. I have stopped eating those candies and I will not eat them until they do something about it. We CAN make a change and i think we should start now.

to get this known...start a conversation in all of ur goodreads groups stating this. join other groups to get this known. Do whatever u can to stop this awful killing! Make a change.

Moonlight | 82 comments I called and a lady answered. Here is the conversation:

Lady: hello?
Me: hello?
Lady: how can i help you?
Me: I want to know when you guys will stop animal testing.
Lady: Yes, our testing doesn't harm the animals at all. (didn't believe her) May I ask where you are getting this information?
Me: Marscandykills.com
Lady: Oh, the video there isn't the Mars candy animal testing. It's just animal testing in general. Mars candy animal testing doesn't harm animals.
Me: So you dont harm animals at all?
Lady: We don't harm then at all.
Me: okay.
Lady: Can I have you first and last name for document?
Me: *hangs up the phone*

oh my gosh! I'm going to call again tomorrow and ask what testing they do. I'll also alert them of the protesting going on and demanding to stop the testing. I don't believe that you can test on an animal without harming it!
