If I have fond memories to associate with Hershey's chocolates, why did I write about the culture exchange program and the ingredients? Well, the thing is all of this information is easily available to anyone with internet access. Sometimes, like in the case of these chocolates, I look up some information that I can add and all this dirt comes up, without me intending to dig it up.
If you search for ANY company, you will find information that the company will not be proud of. There are always inferior ingredients, unfair trade practices, sweatshops, blood diamonds… the problem in general the corporates are getting more greedy or may be a lot of information that was earlier not available is now available to everyone. Or maybe both.
