Mars Snackfood US, maker of M&Ms, Snickers, Milky Way, and others is giving away free chocolate.
Every Friday through the end of September, you have a chance to get a free chocolate bar or candy courtesy of the Mars Real Chocolate Relief Act. Americans can claim one of 250,000 full-value coupons each Friday beginning on May 8 at 9 a.m. EST by visiting RealChocolate.com. Coupons, which will be mailed to consumers, will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis and are redeemable for any full-size Mars real chocolate product. The coupons will be limited to one per person, per week.
This campaign began to draw attention to competitors that substitute vegetable oil for cocoa butter in their products. Mars says it uses only 100% cocoa butter and urges consumers to look at labels whenever they buy chocolate to be sure they’re getting the real thing.
"Mars Snackfood US chocolate brands do not compromise on the purity and authenticity of chocolate by diluting it with a cocoa butter substitute. Remember, if it's Mars, it's real chocolate."
While bringing attention to chocolate standards, Mars is also trying to lift the spirits of Americans in a recession-plagued nation, describing the promotion as “a massive effort (that) aims to spread joy across America by giving away as many as 7 million full-size packages of Mars chocolate.”
