Mars Candy Company to end King Sized bars

The days of the "King Size" candy bar are soon coming to an end. Mars, which makes Snickers, Milky Way and M&M's, will no longer sell any candy that's more than 250 calories.

That means no more King Sized Snickers bars, which pack a whopping 580 calories. It also means some regular-sized candy bars will be smaller.

This move is part of an agreement signed with Michelle Obama’s partnership for a healthier America.

The high calorie candies will all be phased out by the end of next year. The candy maker is one of 16 companies that have pledged to cut more than a trillion calories from their foods by the end of 2015.
