Fake chocolate = mockolate?!


Hershey's is apparently following the evolutionary steps of the Tootsie Roll, by becoming "chocolate."

Key quote in an article by Laura T. Coffey of NBC's TODAY show:
The removal of cocoa butter violates the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s definition of milk chocolate, so subtle changes have appeared on the labels of the Hershey’s products with altered recipes. Products once labeled “milk chocolate” now say “chocolate candy,” “made with chocolate” or “chocolatey.”
(Thanks to Andrew Sullivan for the tip.)
