I couldn't find this anywhere else on the site (I'm sorry if it has been posted up here before).
I read on a forum I'm on that Mars Candy (who also make Starburst, Snickers, Maltesers, Milky Way, etc) fund animal testing. To make it worse, the testing they do is pointless. For example (quoted from the website MarsCandyKills:
'Mars funded a deadly experiment on mice that was published in a 2007 issue of the Journal of Neuroscience in which mice were fed flavanols (phytochemicals that are found in chocolate) and forced to swim in a pool of water mixed with white paint to hide a submerged platform, which the mice had to find in order to avoid drowning, only to be killed and dissected later on.'
I don't see how making mice swim in a pool of white paint is going to make scientists discover anything new...
