Mars Chocolate

My friend in the U.S. just emailed me here in India that the BBC website in the U.K. has an article about the amazing turnaround of the chocolate company Mars (whose products are sold in Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu and throughout India) about their decision NOT to replace vegetable products with animal products (rennet) in the manufacture of their famous and delicious chocolate bars. Vegetarians and Hindus inundated the Mars Company with their complaints, demanding that animal products NOT be introduced in their chocolate bar manufacture. Surprised by the size of the protests (and I imagine fearful for their profits), Mars quickly had a change of heart. To read the full article, visit this story.
