Excellent quote by Paul Goalby from Masterfoods:
"If the customer is an extremely strict vegetarian, then we are sorry the products are no longer suitable but a less strict vegetarian should enjoy our chocolate."

Nice to see he has a clear understanding of peoples dietary choices. :rolleyes:

My girlfriend is vegetarian and while I'm now happy she won't be raiding my fridge and stealing all my mars bars, I still can't answer her question, as to why they have done this?

The only answer that seemed logical to me was it must be cheaper. Anyone know if this is right or Mars' explanation for it?

I think he's got it perfectly right? :confused:



He could have worded it better, admittedly?


"Our product now contains traces of animal products.

If you don't like eating meat, don't worry, as you won't be eating any meat.
If you're a political vegetarian, then you'll have to go elsewhere."


That's more how i'd have put it... :devil:

OMG, never thought of that aspect!


'May contain meat' labels..... now that's the business to be in!! :D

I must be too used to my Grandad tearing down the establishment... :D

I'm sure most vegetarians have had a bit meat in them at some point. :D

Can't see what all the fuss is about.

They put flouride in drinking water to cure / prevent tooth decay, sounds like they are putting animal products in chocolate now to try and cure vegetarians of thier affliction. :rotfl:

Don't vegetarians not eat eggs and cow milk etc.? I would have thought that chocolate based products would contain some of that so it makes sense that Mars tell people so people can make their own choice.

Personally I think it's pushing it but if you've got beliefs you stick to them.

I'm sure most veggies are mindful of tackling meat and other products :rolleyes: Look what happened recently when they were considering genetically modifying eggs to deliver specific proteins to fight cancer.

I'm sure many veggies thought twice before popping a soldier in their mouth :eek:

based on all the women in my family..... I think Vegans/Veggies/cabbageists find it equally confusing.....

Apparently there's even a branch of veggie where you can eat bacon sandwiches for a few years, without so much as a glimmer of guilt. :D

Bacon, Like Fish isn't really a meat. And Chickens, well I guess they are OK;)

If it's not furry, then it's not an animal, right? :D

Do any fertilisers contain animal products? That would mean carrots could be made from animals; then grown, transported and sold by meat eaters.

My mate grows organic corn/rape/barley/oats

'Magic Growth' Ingredient #1 is:

Pigs blood, from the local slaughterhouse, injected directly into the soil. :devil:


:rotfl:


It's not exactly groundbreaking stuff either
