What do you care, not like you are being force fed the things. Some people eat plain old white chalk, why not chocolate covered car wax.

Unless you are in a farmer's market which is organic, local stuff, wax is used on LOTS of things as a preservative.......all those shiny fruits and vegetables in a grocery store......they'd rot quickly without a thin layer of it...

Instead of resorting to hyperbole, can you explain why carnauba wax is so bad to eat? It's a plant-derived substance and used in tons of food products and as a coating for pills.

Have you tried sundrops?
Sunspire | SunDrops

I have acquired a taste for the carob variety but the chocolate are good, too. The ingredients listed for the milk chocolate variety are: Milk chocolate (evaporated cane juice and unsulphured molasses, whole milk powder, cocoa butter, unsweetened chocolate, soy lecithin, natural vanilla), evaporated cane juice, whole rice solids, coloring (beet juice, beta carotene, caramel), vegetable wax, beeswax. Contains milk and soy.

but its easier to just call something "car wax" and think people should immediately be disgusted by that instead of actually thinking about what the product is, what its made of and what possible harm it can or cant cause.

Check out your local chocolate places. They always have better chocolate everything. At least round these parts.

Carnauba wax can be a cheap sub for beeswax. I think it has a different flavor to it. I find local places may use either but the freshness of the chocolate cancels any bad taste out.

There are generic versions out in a variety of department and bulk food stores, including Meijer's. There is a Party Central store near me that sells them in bulk, by color. You get even get appetizing GRAY ones. I haver to say I have not tasted these -- they could be gross and waxy.

Have to written to Mars to complain?
