Hershey's Is Ending The Importing Of Certain British Chocolates & Making People Very Sad

| Filed under: FoodGIFsNews

What?! Say it isn't so!

A recent settlement between Let's Buy British Imports, or L.B.B., and Hershey's demanded that the British confectioner stop selling their wares in America, because Hershey's needs to protect their brand.

So, if you're a fan of the British candies Toffee Crisps and Yorkie bars, you're out of luck because they too-closely resemble Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and York peppermint patties. Oh, and the KitKats made in the UK will obviously not be making it here either.

Actually this may be the beginning of a good thing though!

The reason people love British candy more than American is because they use higher quality ingredients. For example, in the British Cadbury's Dairy Milk bar, the first ingredient is milk, whereas in America, it is sugar. Also, British candies use vegetable fats to get their smooth texture, but American chocolates use PGPR and soy lecithin, which give the candy a longer shelf life, but make it less delicious.

So, maybe since people can't get British candy anymore, they'll want America to step its chocolate game up!

We're not going to hold our breath, though… but there's no harm in staying optimistic, right???

Ann Curry FINALLY Leaves NBC For Good! On To Bigger Things? Find Out!

| Filed under: TV NewsBusiness BlitzNews

It's been almost three years since Ann Curry was unceremoniously fired from The Today Show.

Since then, because of her contract with NBC, she has stayed tucked away under the peacock's wing as a correspondent on NBC News and an "anchor at large" for Today.

In other words, she's been an Ann of all trades.

But it seems all things must end, even painfully awkward public relations disasters.

Ann is reportedly seeking an out, negotiating an end to her $12 million a year contract.

It's about time! That's a lot of money to kiss goodbye, but you have your dignity, gurl! Way more important, especially in the serious news game.

We can't wait to see what Ann does next, but wherever she ends up, we know she'll be great.

​Stuart Scott: In His Own Words

| Filed under: News

Stuart Stewart's 2014 ESPYs speech is inspiring

During the 2014 ESPY Awards, Stuart Scott was awarded the Jimmy V Perseverance Award, for continuing his long battle with cancer, and refusing to give up.

At the time, he struggled to get out of the hospital to make it to the ceremony in Los Angeles, but he did, because Stuart wouldn't let cancer beat him.

Through his life and his actions, Stuart beat cancer.
