I’ve taken the week off of work for the Thanksgiving holiday, so I’m taking the week off from writing reviews as well. Instead, you’ll get a news post every day this week. I’ll be back on Nov 30 with more reviews.
To kick of the week in candy news, here’s a long piece from the Economist on the business and ethics of Nestle, which is trying to market itself as a “wellness” brand. It reminds me of a course I took called the Psychology, Biology, and Politics of Food, taught by Professor Kelly Brownell. We had a guest lecturer from Pepsi-Co who discussed similar efforts by his company to “healthify” itself.
