Mars is one of 16 food companies that has pledged to Mrs. Obama's Partnership for a Healthy America to eliminate 1.5 trillion calories from its foods by 2015.

You'll still be able to get your Snickers fix, though; the king-sized version will be replaced with "2toGo" -- two 220 calorie bars in one package that can be resealed "to save one for later," the company said.
