    This is one TERRIBLE news I am hearing.All the chocolete companies that I really love, like Hersheys,Mars,and many more are using children to make chocolete.This is truley WRONG. My love for chocoletes are decreasing now. Using childs as slaves to make chocolete is horrible. Every children should be treated equally no matter what.
