Don't be fooled by unscrupulous drug dealers.......

Police: Hershey Candy Looks Like Drugs

HARRISBURG, Pa. - New mint packets being sold by The Hershey Co. look nearly identical to the tiny heat-sealed bags used to sell illegal powdered drugs like crack, heroin and cocaine and glorify the drug trade, a Philadelphia police official said.

Ice Breakers Pacs, nickel-sized dissolvable pouches with a powdered sweetener inside, hit store shelves in November. The packets, which come in blue and orange plastic slide-up cases, are similar enough to drug packets that a child familiar with the candy could mistakenly swallow a heat-sealed bag of drugs, Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector William Blackburn told the Philadelphia Daily News for an article published Friday.

"It glorifies the drug trade," he said. "There's really no reason that a product like this should be on the shelf."

A spokesman for the company, based in Hershey, Pa., pointed out that each pouch - made by two dissolvable mint strips - bears the Ice Breakers logo.

"It is not intended to simulate anything," said spokesman Kirk Saville.

Saville would not directly respond to questions about whether Hershey has plans to change the product's appearance or whether anyone in law enforcement or inside the company has previously raised a concern about it.

Why chocolate, sex and cold cuts can boost your brain
By GWYNETH REES - Last updated at 21:46pm on 2nd December 2007

Many claim to have found the answer to keeping the mind active, from crosswords and Sudoku to plenty of exercise and cold showers.

But now it seems the secret may lie in our lifestyle and what we eat to fuel our bodies.

Dark chocolate and plenty of cold meat for breakfast top the list for boosting grey matter, researchers suggest, while sex is essential for keeping the brain fit in later life.

Those wishing to improve their mental power should avoid smoking cannabis, watching soap operas and hanging out with those who moan.

But cuddling a baby, cheating at homework, reading out loud and doing a business degree at university are all good for an efficient mind.

The theories, based on research from experts around the world, are contained in the book Teach Yourself: Training Your Brain.

Hmmm,
The Daily Mail is perhaps a marginally more reliable source than
the Star or the Sun,
But only just.
For pure unabashed Conservative facts
It has to be the Daily Telegraph
