Hershey’s Spread is short of the required almonds to prove its claims for strong and healthy kids says ASCI

I would choose fresh fish or perhaps some catnip instead to grow quickly!




Hershey’s Spread’s advertised in India by Hershey India Pvt. Ltd. coaxed buyers to buy the product for its rich almond content which would make children grow healthy and strong.


A canny consumer not impressed by this claim complained to the Advertising Standards Council of India which put its foot down upon this ad! Hershey India told the ASCI that their ad was based on several scientific studies about the benefits of almonds in foods etc. But the ASCI pointed out that all these studies did indeed say that 100 per cent almond content in products gave enormous health benefits to the consumer. But alas, Hershey’s Spread only has 3 per cent almond paste! This was hardly likely to give the benefits, claimed in their ad! It told Hershey to remove the misleading advertisement!
