- Heavily debated in health food circles, artificial flavors and colors will no longer be present in Nestle's chocolate candy by the end of the year, the company announced.
- The changes include more than 75 recipes, including Butterfinger, Baby Ruth, Raisinets, and Sno Caps, and will be officially released to stores starting later this year.
- To make sure the company's chocolate would not lose its beloved flavors and appearance, Nestle performed consumer testing for new recipes.
This isn't Nestle's only foray into healthier foods as of late. The company recently revealed it was exploring making a drink that simulates exercise effects in consumers with "limited mobility." Similar to Nestle's latest announcement, Unilever's Breyers announced earlier this month that it would stop using milk or cream that contains artificial growth hormones in its ice cream products.
