Can you ever have too much chocolate?

So on the one hand, we're reading news reports every day on how people are getting fatter, obesity is an epidemic, we need to cut the fat and calories, yada yada yada ... and on the other hand, they're making M&Ms bigger. Not the packages, mind you, but the actual candy-covered chocolates. Was this really necessary? Regular plain and peanut M&Ms seem to be of an adequate size to give us all sugar highs and fat thighs. We need 55% more with each bite? Maybe this is the only way people will cut down: "Hey," you can say, "I ate half as many M&Ms." Coupled with the news that Atkins is going under, I guess you could say this was a very good week for carbs.
