Mars Inc. Removing Artificial Colors

Mars Inc. Just Announced a Major Change to Your Favorite Candy

Big news for candy-lovers: some of your favorites are undergoing a big change — but don't worry, it's for the better. Mars Inc. recently announced that it will be removing all artificial colors from more than 50 of its beloved products including M&M's, Wrigley's gum, Skittles, and Snickers.

All good things take time, and this transition is set to be completed in five years or so. "Eliminating all artificial colors from our human food portfolio is a massive undertaking, and one that will take time and hard work to accomplish," Mars Inc. CEO Grant F. Reid told Eater. The corporation hopes this will spawn an industry-wide movement toward healthier and more natural ingredients.
