Pamela Anderson Takes On Mars Candy

Written by PETA | December 15, 2007

The wonderful Pamela Anderson, who was once paid to promote M&M’s, has come out against Mars Candy for funding inhumane experiments on animals in violation of its own written policy. Pam faxed a letter to Mars President Paul S. Michaels this week expressing her support for PETA’s Mars Campaign, and letting him know that she will be encouraging her fans to boycott the candy this Holiday season. “When my friends at PETA showed me evidence that Mars continues to fund cruel and pointless animal tests,” she writes, “I was shocked—and it takes a lot to shock me.”

You can read the full letter here.

    is this still happening? Are they still doing experiments on animals?

    I organized a demo against M&M Mar’s years ago in Times Square in NYC years ago. Even though I’m a vegan we sent people over to Hershey’s across the street. The manager of M&M Mars was nasty to us demonstrators and called the police on us. The police could not do anything we were not doing anything against the law. Look at the comparison between Hersheys commercials and M&M Mars. Hershey’s are happy and loving and M&M Mars are weird and mean.

    Guys not just skittles 3 mustketeers milky way m n m mars starbursts twix they also make pet food out of pets!

  • Trying2bGood says:

    There is so much we don’t know about… We have to look constantly for labels indicating all man-made, cruelty free, etc… I buy organic. I just learned that organic dairy farms are the biggest suppliers of baby calves for veal. They are tortured in the name of flavor… can ANYTHING taste that good? I am giving up dairy because I do not wish to finance the torture of baby calves & their mothers (who bond with their babies like we do, & grieve like we do)I used to like these candies… never again will I purchase from Mars. There’s a huge dark side called “greed” and it’s so much bigger than we are.

  • Joyce Shulman says:

    SOOO DISGUSTED= as a child, I LOVED these candies- NEVER AGAIN! Nobody knows about this

  • Jennifer Avina says:

    The truth hurts watching it hurts even more! MM’smars were one of my favorit candys but not n e more!!! I’ve never ben more discusted in my life!!! No animal diserves to be treated that way! I VOTE YES ON HUMAN TESTIN!!! STARTING WITH THE TESTERS!!!I wounder how they can sleep at night?!? Let them feel as helpless and traped as those poor animals do!!! Anything that breaths and has a beating heart should have a chance to live life and die when their time comes. Who are we to make that dicision for them!?! Ps……..Pamala keep fighting the great fight!!! I’ll pass the word along to family and friends!!!

  • liz says:

  • jamie says:

  • Jamie says:

    This is just another reason to love and admire Pamela Anderson. I don’t like candy anyway but now I will be sure to avoid Mars products.

  • stephanie sant says:

    at the end of the day humans have become so sadistic and ruthless they will use animals to test on just about anything for money so its hardly surprising they that torture animals to help make chcolate. And L’Oreal also test on animals tooso dnt buy any of their cosmetics face or hair products!

  • kenya says:

    u suck mars i hope u lose bussnis i hope the whole factory burns down i hate all your candy now how could u do that to animals how bought we torcher u and see how u lik it stupid

  • Hannah says:

    I appreciate what Pam is doing and after watching a video posted on YouTube about MARS and animal testing I was pretty disgusted but as others have said I would like some more evidence or at least other sites reporting acts of violence towards animals. It doesn’t mean I support animal cruelty in any way but I’d rather look at every angle and gets all the facts before pointing any fingers and waving my torch and pitchforks around. Nevertheless I don’t think I’ll be eating too much candy MARS or not and if there are any other sites with information on this please email me. Thankyou.

  • Margie Nelsen says:

    No more Mars for me and who ever will listen to me. What pet foods do they make?

  • Cassie says:

    Dear ANYONE WHO SAID THEY SUPPORT ANIMAL TESTING ! what the heck is wrong with you ? “its just rats and mice” THOSE HAPPEN TO BE ANIMALS TOO YOU DUNCE CAP ! yes chocolate is yummy but even myself whos personal fave candy is mms is choosing to boycott mars candy products until they find more humaine ways to test their products . I think what pamela anderson did was absolutley inspiring .

  • katie says:

    okay Like seriously I love animals and I HATE animal testing. but i am not a vegatarian or a vegan so i just feel but like yeaah. OK well the whole mars shit thing is SHIT! I can’t beleve that. now i’m defanetly going to buy other products. And also to JONAS TRAS you cango fucking DIE. you obviously know that Mars would not tell you that they’re not testing on animals you STUPID! just do the WHOLE world a favor and actually find out facts about the grisley murder of these animals with MARS. oooh and by the way that’s the middle finger xo Katie!

  • Jonas Tras says:

    I talked to both the Mars Corporation and also some people that I know whom work for Mars. This is untrue. So many people will believe whatever lies are spouted out in front of them from a hokey celebrity that that is as intelligent as a box of rocks and probably has to call her kids in to tie her shoes.

  • tia carpenter says:

    i dont get it… the video on http://www.marscandykills.com shocked me but why would mars waste money on torturing animals??? it doesn’t make sense wat can they learn from it and why do they do it? and is there any actual evidence??? im not saying i like mars and wat they could be doing but im doing a case study for science on animal testing and i need substantial evidence to back up my research so PLEASE if u have any proof or info of how to find some on mars or another candy’s animal testing e.t.c. post it here if someone has some i will NEVER eat these products again… ps nestle ARE a terrible company e.g. they gave mothers in africa powder milk and said it was better than their own but the water they mixed with the powder stuff was dirty and loads of babies died. anyway Thanx xxx Thank you very much Pam Animals deserve to be treated right. And I’m glad your doing it the right way. Its amazing such a big star with a busy life stands up so much for animals and really believes in them. Thanks Pam your an inspiration. Its okay that you made a mistake we’re people. We all make mistakes you did not know of what they were doing so its not your fault. I think they should be knocked off the candy market I just wish they would be. But for now Pam good work. Keep on Helping Animals. and yes your right Ana. as for Anne Browning Robert honestly go find another page to gawk on. If you don’t support it don’t read it unless you are want to become an animal helper. Don’t bother us with you dumb chit chat when we honestly don’t wanna hear you say those kinds of things on an animal helping site. Robert needs a few more than a thousand tests run on him. And Anne Browing needs to keep her topics that have nothing to do with Helping Animals off these PETA pages. She as well as many other people and Robert I can see do not have a heart. Well I do so I suggest you get one or the animals will come back one day and rip you a new one. Sounds crazy but I believe that one day Animals will get their turn to fight back so just back off before you get hurt!

  • Jane Laurenve says:

    To all the people who are saying Pamela Anderson is a hypocrite or that there is “no proof” ugh you people bother me. Just because you feel guilty about supporting a company that does awful things does NOT mean that you can justify it by giving pathetic excuses! It’s time for Americans to realize the consequences of our actions and not make stupid excuses just because we are to lazy to change into doing something we know is the right thing to do.

  • Haley says:

    You know its not just MM’s.Its all my old favorite candy even star burst but no more I will stick to hershys.I used to go crazy spending $100054605 last year but what ever if it goes to torturig animals count me out.

  • hazel says:

    thanks pam! your the best and i will not buy anymore of mms

  • Angel says:

    i get disgusted even looking at mm’s or anyother mars candy because of what they do to poor innocent rats.

  • love says:

    they suck and they are the most dumb’s people in the hole world and now i’m going to tell everyone i know ha ha ha mars i’m going to destroy you guys ha ha ha ha !!

  • marian says:

    All those bad “people” make the life of animals to hell! They are devills in disquises. Who likes chocolate that tastes like blood? Everybody has to know this about the M and sort like companies. I am not glad to know but its better to know…

  • Furuzon says:

    o0…I can’t believe what Mars is doing!! They sell those murderous bars in our school I ain’t buying that satan food no more…You’d never think that a chocolate company would do that I just don’t know who to trust anymore. It really puts everything into perspective…

  • Kay says:

    Miguel That is the most stupid thing i’ve ever heard! Animals Feel Pain Just like we Do. Those test aren’t even accurate!!! News Flash Dumbass Primates have been shown to be more intelligent than humans 9 out of 10 times !

  • Kay says:

    Craig you’re slow. She’s not trying to make poeple quit cold turkey that’s why! Ark if you want proof go to http://www.marscandykills.com

  • lexi b says:

    UUUUUUHHHHH… Im disgusted by mars and take a plaedge to not eat their candies ever again!

  • Sarah says:

    how can a candy company do something so cruel? The thought of candy is supposed to make us happy not make us feel like we’re the ones killing the poor animals! They must be stopped! ……. cat

  • miguel says:

    Now that i found out MARS is doing animal testing and killing poor innocent mice and rats i’m going to eat more MARS products. Better to test on animals with small brains than a human who can comprehend what’s going on. The company I work for also tests on animals. It is an easy and cost effective way of testing products before they go any further. Way to go MARS I know you had yours and our best interests in mind. BTW your products are delicious.
