Chocolate fiends, listen up.
Confectionary giant Mars has reportedly been forced to issue a 'voluntary recall' of products in 55 countries, after plastic was found in one batch.
The recall affects products distributed from the Netherlands earlier this year but only certain Celebrations boxes and variety packs believed to be affected.
The problem specifically affects Mars, Milky Way and Mixed Variety Packs as well as Celebrations with the following best before dates:
"This is an isolated incident and only the above products manufactured in the Netherlands are impacted. No other varieties of chocolate, pack formats or bar sizes are affected in Ireland," read a statement released by Mars Ireland.
"To date, we have only received one consumer complaint. In Ireland, we have not received any consumer complaints."
"Mars Ireland regrets any inconvenience caused to our consumers. We offer our consumers our sincere apologies."
If you currently have any of the affected products, you are asked to call the customer care team on 1890 812315.
Even though it's bad for the company, we do love when a big brand make a big photoshop fail.
And the latest to enter the hall of fame? Snickers.
The ad features a woman in a swimsuit, with a blue sky and calm beach surrounding her. But when you look again, there's not only a mysterious hand on the woman's shoulder, there's also a bag strap in her hand and her belly button is beside her boobs.
But before you get annoyed at how bad it is – Snickers did this on purpose. The line on the ad reads, "Photo retouchers get confused when they're hungry."
According to AdWeek, there's a total of 11 photoshop fails in the campaign. Can you spot them all? Tweet Snickers when you do.
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.
The dessert of kings; the sweet-treat of champions: here at SHEmazing! we recently stumbled upon a recipe for caramel Snickers cookie cups… and suffice to say our lives have since changed for the better.
Better still, they're embarrassingly easy to make. All you need is a batch of 1) chocolate chip cookie dough, 2) a bit of butter, 3) a bag of Snickers fun-sized, and 4) caramel sauce for drizzling (Tesco's Finest range has a great salted caramel sauce for €2.50).
1) Take a bun tray and light grease with a little butter.
2) Mash segments of cookie dough into the bun tray, creating a cup shape.
3) Then bake for 10-12minutes at 180C.
4) Remove and, leaving the dough in the tray, immediately add a fun-sized Snickers bar to each cookie.
5) Let cool, transfer to a plate and drizzle with caramel just before serving.
