It looks like some people just want to watch the world burn.

Of course, we got really angry when people came for our reproductive rights, or our religious freedoms.

But now they're having a crack at our chocolate bars too?

The humanity!

The Metro made a handy visual guide to show which bars are heavier than at their conception.

It turns out most of them are heavier, BUT, they peaked in size in the early noughties, and have decreased in size since then.

For example, back in the 90s, Snickers were a whopping 62g and now they're 48g (three grams more than how much they weighed in the 80s as they emerged on the scene as 'Marathon').

But they are seriously under threat.

The stupid people at Public Health England (PPE) who are trying to 'look after us' by holding business' 'accountable' for the amount of 'sugar' in our 'food', are ruining everything.

According to The Times Chocolate bar big leagues like Mars, Nestle – which produces KitKats – and Cadbury owner Mondelez, are looking to cut the size of their products so they don't get named and shamed in the PPE report.

Other products, like cereal, can cut their sugar content by introducing alternatives, like sweeteners, but chocolate can't do this.

If it did, it would seriously compromise the taste, and be like weird American chocolate, which we HATE.

So, it look's like the only solution to to cut the size by what looks like about 20 per cent.

Is there no God?!

Dr Alison Tedstone, chief nutritionist at PHE, said: 'Parents want help to make healthier food choices and for their children to eat less sugar.'

'We're supporting all sectors of the food and drink industry to lower how much sugar children get from everyday products, either through reformulation, portion sizes or encouraging parents to buy products with less sugar in them.'

Well you know what we say to that PPE?
