Skittles, M&M’s and Snickers bars are getting a HUGE makeover

Well, we can say goodbye to sweets as we know them because a major change is about to happen.

A press release was issued by parent company Mars, Inc, which said that all artificial colours will be removed from over 50 of the chocolates, gum, foods, drinks, and confections that the company makes. 

They are replacing them with all natural alternatives that the company has to source with the help of its suppliers.

So, that means M&M's, Snickers, Wrigley's chewing gum and Skittles are all about to change.

It's a good thing that artificial colours are becoming a thing of the past, but the same issue happened with an American cereal brand, and let's just say, it looked very different, indeed:

But don't run out to your local shop and buy a lifetime stash of Snickers just yet. The change is going to take up to five years to complete, so we still have loads of time to munch down on our goodies.

Well hello there!
