Hershey’s: Continuing to make me sad


Posted on October 25th, by Hayley in Hershey's, Stuff That Matters. 4 comments

Halloween is upon us, which means that if you’re not a total grump you’re going to be passing out candy to your neighborhood’s children. Before you pick up said candy on your Dillon’s run tonight, please read this post.

I think I previously posted about how Hershey’s Company is controlled by jerks who refuse to make strides towards implementing labor rights standards among their cocoa suppliers, meaning they aren’t doing all they can to insure child and/or forced labor isn’t being used to grow their cocoa. They continue to be jerks in this regard. You can sign a petition asking them to stop being jerks here.

And in addition to being jerks for the above reason, they are also jerks because of this.

So do not pass out sad candy to your Trick-or-Treaters this year, and avoid the following candies/brands:

  1. 5th Avenue
  2. Almond Joy
  3. Bliss
  4. Breath Savers/Life Savers
  5. Bubble Yum
  6. Cadbury
  7. Dagoba Organic Chocolates
  8. Good & Plenty
  9. Good & Fruity
  10. Heath Bar
  11. Ice Breakers
  12. Jolly Rancher
  13. Joseph Schmidt Confections
  14. Kit-Kats
  15. Krackel
  16. Mauna Loa Macademia Nuts
  17. Milk Duds
  18. Mounds
  19. Mr. Goodbar
  20. NutRageous
  21. Oh Henry!
  22. PayDay
  23. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Reese’s Pieces, and the other “Reese’s” products
  24. Rolos
  25. Scarffen Berger
  26. Skor
  27. Snack Barz
  28. Take 5 
  29. Symphony
  30. Whatchamacallit
  31. York Peppermint Pattie
  32. Zagnut
  33. ZERO

I know, that is a very long, yummy list. But seriously, they’re jerks.

    I’m SOOO glad I bought Starbursts to pass out. And SOOO sad I also bought Reese’s and Kit Kats. 🙁 Maybe next year I’ll get it right?

      No! Please do not be sad. I didn’t mean to make anyone feel guilty. And that delicious chocolate should be enjoyed. Just don’t buy anymore. 🙂

    Can we pretend #19 is not on the list? I am down with not buying the other 32 items.
