    Answer ASAP I need it for homework. How many chemicals are in a Mars bar? As in this kind:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mars_%28chocolate_bar%29

    If you don't know the exact number please give an approximation.

    Thanks.

    Given that there are several hundred different chemicals in chocolate alone, I'd say up to a thousand, give or take.

    As Veho was getting at "how many chemicals" is a fairly nebulous question and one open to serious interpretation before I even consider it as the result of a biological process which only makes things worse.

    Between insane and insecure
    The title of this thread nearly scared the fuck out of me.
    I thought there was something actually dangerous in their candy at first!

    You mean CHocolate isn't an element?

    Let's see here:
    INGREDIENTS: Corn Syrup, Sugar, Modified Milk Ingredients, Cocoa Butter, Hydrogenated Palm and Palm Kernel Oil, Cocoa Mass, Lactose, Palm Oil, Soy Lecithin, Salt, Artificial Flavor.
    CONTAINS: Milk Ingredients
    MAY CONTAIN: Eggs

    I'd say counting the chemicals in that would be a Herculean task. The artificial flavor and "milk ingredients" alone would throw from getting a correct answer.

    Are you sure that's how the question is worded? Because if so, getting the exact amount of chemicals isn't exactly a feasible task.

    by questioning the wording you have derailed this thread into chocolate fanboyism.

    It's a new class. It's about the chemicals in Mars bars. I've learnt things you couldn't imagine.

    There is an entire class centered around this subject now? That's ridiculous.

    Everyone knows 3 Musketeers are better.

    We call 'em Milky Way bars in the UK. I wanted to take that class but it was full so I had to take the Mars one.

    At my school we only learn about candy bars named after things in space.
