What would you do for a.....?

If you're buying a "Snickers Almond" candy bar thinking the "new!" label actually means something, buyer beware. They are being cleverly repackaged and marketed. What you get underneath the fancy wrapping is actually a Mars bar. Don't get me wrong. I love Mars bars.

But new? P-shaw.

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

just as long as no one lays a finger on my butterfingers!

Doesn't surprise me, really.
Take marshmallows, for example - store brand, Stay Puft, any brand you can think of - they are ALL made by THE SAME factory in Michigan. Now I have no problem buying store brand 'mellows.
And now I can buy Mars or Snickers Almonds and know I'm getting the same quality junk food. ;)

Any Mars left on the market is a fluke.

And the two products are NOT the same...
Almonds (in the ingred. list) now rank below corn syrup & sugar instead of above--also reflected in protein down from 4g to 3g. Mars was better. :(
