(CBS) – Fans of king-sized Snickers and Twix bars may want to stock up.  The candy maker Mars Inc. reportedly is planning to impose a 250-calorie limit on its chocolate products by the end of next year.

For king-size shoppers who like to get the most chocolate out of their purchase, Mars told NPR it would replace the big bars with bags of two to four smaller bars to “enable sharing or saving a portion for later.”

According to reports, the move is part of the company’s “broad-based commitment to health and nutrition.”

The king-size Snickers bar has 540-calories, while the normal size Snickers bar contains 280 calories, with 14 grams of fat.
