Mars Chocolate To Cut Down Portion Size

18 Feb

Mars Bars. Available to buy online in Bulk from Moo-Lolly-Bar AustraliaOn Tuesday, Mars Inc. reiterated a promise to “renovate” its chocolate products – which include M&Ms, Snickers, and Dove Bars – so that no portion will exceed 250 calories by the end of 2013.

In some cases, this means chocolate bars will get smaller. In others, it means packaging will change: hefty King Size portions will be subdivided into smaller “2toGo” subportions, designed to make it easier to put one serving aside for later.

In theory, anyway.

Whether smaller packages really do translate to fewer calories consumed has been a matter of debate. In one study from researchers at the University of Colorado in Denver, participants offered 100-calorie snack packs for a week consumed fewer grams of food than participants offered standard-sized packs – and continued to do so once bigger packages were re-introduced, suggesting that eating from smaller packages increased awareness of portion size. (Personally, I’ve had pretty good luck sticking to just one of these Trader Joe’s chocolate bars at a time.) But this analysis from Supermarket News shows that though consumers frequently say they like portion-controlled products, they still often overeat.

The Los Angeles Times has weighed in often on portion control in recent years. In 2008 and in 2011, writers Karen Ravn and Jeannine Stein reported on portion control plates, designed to help diners serve up the right amount of food. Last year, Stein also blogged about a study that found that cutting food into smaller pieces limited consumption. And this study, which I reported about in December 2010, suggested that merely imagining eating an M&M could make you crave it less.

The surplus candy will then be shipped to U.S. troops oversees as part of Operation Gratitude.

Belmont kids are invited to put their Halloween candy collections to good use in a program sponsored by local dentists and the Belmont UPS Store.

Drs. Urmi Amin (pediatric dentist), Michael Chang (orthodontist), and Nancy Kaher (general dentist), will donate $2 per pound of wrapped candy turned in (up to $3,500) to School Force, the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District’s education foundation.

The collected candy will be shipped to US troops overseas by managers Sushil and Anjana Kalara of the Belmont UPS Store.

From Nov. 1-4, students can drop their Halloween candy off in any school office in the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District (Fox, Cipriani, Central, Nesbit, Redwood Shores Elementary, Sandpiper or Ralston Middle School).

This is the second year for the program, started by Dr. Amin, who is a parent at Cipriani School. Dr. Amin recruited Drs. Chang and Kahler to join the buy-back program. Last year, over 1,500 pounds of candy were donated to Operation Gratitude.
