Stop Hershey's legal action against British chocolate importers

This petition had 1,549 supporters

Hershey's thinks that British chocolate importers are deceiving the American public by stocking their shelves of what are largely British specialty stores with things from across the pond. They believe this tricks consumers into thinking the chocolates they are buying are manufactured by Hershey's USA.

However, people who buy British Cadbury's are seeking British chocolate and candy because it reminds them of home and the varieties available overseas are extensive. The chocolate selection available in the states versus across the pond is extremely different.

The United States of America is home to numerous Brits. The nostalgic feeling one gets when simply biting into a British chocolate bar is part of the reason people look for the Cadbury's chocolate he or she grew up with. When people go to a specialty British store or walk into the international aisle, they fully intend on purchasing British goods. They are completely aware of their decision. 

Not only is the packaging of the products completely different, but the ingredients used differ as well. In regards to health, the chocolate and candy recipes used overseas often use real sugar, milk, natural flavourings, non-gmos, and no preservatives.

Stop Hershey's from infringing upon our freedom of choice in purchasing chocolate!
