LONDON (CBS Seattle) — Nestle is using GPS inside its candy bars to track its customers.

The candy company launched the “We Will Find You” campaign in the United Kingdom where GPS tracking devices were placed inside six candy bars. Once the winning candy bar wrapper is opened, the tracking device will go off and Nestle officials will be able to find the exact location of the customer.

“This will alert a secret control room who will scramble a crack team of highly trained individuals,” the commercial states. “They will board a helicopter, find the special bar and give the owner 10,000 pounds ($16,145).”

    I guess this would be news in the leftest crybaby blogosphere, where they pretend to care about civil liberties, all the while tripping over themselves to condemn a silly movie, applaud an apologetic president and Sec. of State, and approve of perp walking the poor film maker in the middle of the night bracketed by 6 burly sheriffs.

    Sometimes I wish Jefferson would rise out of the grave and bitch slap every one of them for ruining his vision. Madison couldn’t do it, he was too little.

    too many candy bars, you might need some obamacin::

    Just say no to drugs like Obamacin! It leads to skyrocketing national debt, high unemployment and gloom in general.

    My favorite line from this video is “F**k Obamacine!” ** 54sec **

    @Noelegy, I think the First “Lady” is behind this. It’s a beta program for catching any students smuggling snacks into her “deprive children of calories in schools” program.

    Take notice that they are doing this in a place where the citizens have already been disarmed.
