OK, I know I said I didn’t want to see/read/hear any more bad news…
But Mars, the company that makes M&Ms and many other candies, is considering having their product removed from McDonald’s McFlurry ice creams because they’re too sweet.
Yes, instead of letting me decide on a random Tuesday to surprise my family with an overdose of deliciousness, they want to just rip this occasional guilty pleasure away from all of us.
According to Reuters,
“Mars is concerned desserts that feature its candies – such as the McFlurry, Burger King’s Snickers pie and Dairy Queen’s Blizzard – exceed in a single serving the amount of sugar the U.S. government recommends anyone eat in a day, the source said.
That kind of sugar load conflicts with Mars’ public stance that sweets are best enjoyed in moderation.”
They are also talking about just reformulating the recipes for these desserts as an alternative to removing the product altogether.

I guess I’m glad they’re looking out for my health and my waistline, but really?
