I don't think this is true. I am more concerned about the high wax content in most inexpensive chocolate. It won't hurt you, but it seems like the wax content is getting higher and higher... I doubt that human hair or bones are in any of our foods, but the ingredient gelatin is in many candies, and it is usually made from pig's bones. If you are Jewish or Muslim you shouldn't eat candies with gelatin in them for this reason.

Yuck! If any companies do that, they're probably producing cheap and nasty chocolate. So stick to the reputable quality chocolate, rather than the nasty mass-produced stuff and you'll be OK! Lindt, Thorntons, Milka, Ritter, and my personal fave Green & Blacks. If all else fails, look for the Vegetarian symbol on your chocolate packaging, and you'll be safe from any nasty animal-based products, human or otherwise, being added to what ought to be a purely plant and dairy product.

Yes even i have heard it. I was shocked to hear that but what to do we all love choclates and we are not gonna stop it just because they add something. There are foods in which human bones are powdered and added up.

I've never heard that - if it were true, wouldn't they have to put it in the ingredients?

I also heard that they put it in bread. I don't think that it's true though! Did you hear about beetle poo in hair spray, and pig fat in soft serve icecream? Humans seem to enjoy spreading rumours...
