Mars: Now with added meat

by Trevor May | 14th May 2007 | Food | 3 comments

Mars – now with added rennet scraped from the lining of a new-born calf’s stomach: Mars add a bit of cow meat to Mars, Galaxy, Snickers, Twix, Maltesers, Bounty, Minstrels and Milky Way in the UK. One way of getting me to eat less chocolate, I guess.

Update: Mars have announced that they’re reverting back to the recipe without animal-based rennet but cannot guarantee that their products on the shelves don’t contain meat byproducts. Check here for details on which Mars products are suitable for vegetarians, or will be after the sell-by dates specified.

    Weird, isn’t it? Needlessly restricting your market (and then not telling anyone!)

    aye. i saw that in retail week – i’m wondering if its because its cheap that they are going to use it. plus there is a texture issue.

    just great though – more yummy things i’ll not be able to eat!
