Mars Chocolate to raise prices

Created: 07/24/2014 2:44 PM WHEC.com

If you love M&M's, Snickers bars, Skittles or Twix, get ready to pay a little more to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Mars Chocolate, which produces that candy, says it is raising prices by an average of seven percent. The candy maker blames the increase on rising commodity costs.

Just last week, Hershey announced plans to raise its chocolate prices for the same reason.
