Spy Chocolate: Is Your Candy Stalking You?

Does this chocolate look like a spy to you?I think I’ve had my last Nestle candy bar… EVER… (and I LOVE Crunch bars and KitKat). I’d like to blame the candy company… but I’m sure some idiotic PR person thought this idea was an AWESOME blend of cool cutting edge technology that would give them a lot of play in the media. Well, they were half right…

Nestle is tracking their winning candy bars (and customers) with GPS mini-chips. If that isn’t bad enough, they are calling it the “We Will Find You” campaign. Creeped out yet? No?!?!? Well… there’s more…

When the wrapper is opened, the GPS alarms and “alert a secret control room who will scramble a crack team of highly trained individuals… They will board a helicopter, find the special bar and give the owner 10,000 pounds ($16,145).”

This is only in the UK (as far as we know) and there are six of these little buggers out there. Like I said, I’m done with Nestle now. It’s just too creepy for words. It’s bad enough that I have to worry about this kind of crap from my government and now I have to be suspect of my chocolate?!?! That’s unconscionable.
