Snickers Candy Company Apologizes to Communist China for Calling Taiwan a Country

My candy bar of choice is either an “UNO” bar or an Almond Joy.  I have never been a Snickers person—but that is your choice.  Now the Snickers people have decided to go with LeBron James, the NBA and others in support of the terrorist slave nation of China,

“The candy company that produces Snickers issued an apology to communist China for rightly saying in an advertisement that Taiwan is a country.

The company, Mars Wrigley, reportedly faced backlash from Chinese social media users after promoting a limited edition Snickers bar that was said to only be available in the “countries” of Malaysia, South Korea, and Taiwan, Reuters reported.

Chinese state-run newspaper Global Times reported that the company “apologized for marking Taiwan island as a country, saying its local team has verified & aligned the official site and social media accounts to ensure accurate content.”

Mars Wrigley owns Snickers—so if you wan to support China, buy one of their products—like a Snickers bar or the chewing gum.

Snickers Candy Company Apologizes to Communist China for Calling Taiwan a Country

KATHERINE HAMILTON, Breitbart,  8/5/22

The candy company that produces Snickers issued an apology to communist China for rightly saying in an advertisement that Taiwan is a country.

The company, Mars Wrigley, reportedly faced backlash from Chinese social media users after promoting a limited edition Snickers bar that was said to only be available in the “countries” of Malaysia, South Korea, and Taiwan, Reuters reported.

Chinese state-run newspaper Global Times reported that the company “apologized for marking Taiwan island as a country, saying its local team has verified & aligned the official site and social media accounts to ensure accurate content.”

“Snickers owner Mars Wrigley said it respects China’s [national] sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the Global Times tweeted.

The company posted the apology to its Snickers China Weibo account, Reuters added.

As Breitbart News has previously reported, “Taiwan is a sovereign nation with a functional democratic government that the Chinese Communist Party falsely insists is a “province” of China. America, thanks to the policies of former President Jimmy Carter, indulges this falsehood to maintain diplomatic relations with its top geopolitical threat.”

Mars Wrigley’s capitulation to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) comes soon after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) spent about 19 hours visiting Taiwan this week. Pelosi met with President Tsai Ing-wen and visited the country’s human rights museum, among other activities.

The Chinese government responded to Pelosi’s trip by launching three-day-long military exercises in the airspace and waters surrounding Taiwan. The Chinese Foreign Ministry on Friday also announced it would take eight measures against the Biden administration, including halting “climate” talks and military coordination, in response to Pelosi’s Taiwan trip.

  4. Might be the PRC has overplayed it’s hand in the bout with paranoia, they are in economic/financial trouble and trying to bully everyone who opposes their war like actions could begin to cost them trade wise as economies begin to adjust to the idea to adjusting their own production and trade life to going around China…..Their rep is preceding them and they sound like the jingoist communist machine we know they are…….Taiwan could come to the US with it’s chip makers but O’Biden being a China puppet, sympathizer would ignore them….
