Fooling around with Hershey‘s chocolate recipe sounds like one of those things somebody would do just to see if they could pull it off. Well they did, but it’s not quite what you think. Take the jump and get the whole story.

The hacker’s recently targeted the firm, the United States’ largest chocolate manufacturer and maker of the iconic Hershey bar. But rather than seeking personal information, it appears the intruders merely sought to adjust one of the free recipes Hershey’s publishes for fans of its chocolate,which is often derided as poor quality in Europe.

In an email warning to customers, it said it had “recently discovered that an unauthorized individual accessed one of our websites and altered one of our baking recipes”.

So you can relax, it looks like the candy bars are ok, it was just one of the recipes, close call.
