these businesses make me very angry. it's not necessary to kill insects, bugs, etc...for anything - escpecially for our drinks or food. why are so many people kill-happy?! and for nothing. I know people need to eat, and drink - but don't be killing innocent animals, bugs, insects, etc....this is the first time I heard of bugs being killed for candy. thank you for this news.
