We love to snack here in America. The only problem is, that a lot of the everyday snacks that us Americans eat could soon be banned in several states because of some of their ingredients.

These Popular Snacks Could be Banned in Some States Soon

Thousands of popular snacks and classic candies could be banned in several states due to cancer-causing chemicals in their ingredients. Some foods that risk being banned are popular cereals, such as Lucky Charms, Trix and Froot Loops.

Lucky Charms, Trix and Froot Loops contain Yellow 6, which is linked to adrenal tumors.

Popular candies that could be getting the axe include Skittles, Nerds, M&M’s and Swedish Fish. Those contain Red 40, which is linked to some forms of blood cancers.

California was the first American state to start cracking down on cancer-causing dyes in foods. They passed what is known as The Skittles Ban, which notably doesn't ban skittles, just four ingredients that are used in the making of them.

The law doesn't go into effect until 2027 though, so the company has ample time to reformulate the recipe to pass new standards.

Now, let's turn to Cheetos, a very popular snack amongst Americans. On the chopping block is Flamin' Hot Cheetos, due to them having Yellow 5 and Yellow 6. Yellow 5 and Yellow 6 are known to cause DNA mutations in white blood cells.

Doritos, Ruffles and Cheetos are all known to contain Yellow 5 and Yellow 6, thus making them in danger of falling under the umbrella ban if they don't change their recipe.

You might be thinking, "At least they aren't coming for my thirst quencher for after my snacks." They are. Gatorade is on the list of possible banned food and drinks in some states, due to their use of multiple food dyes as well.

Just when you thought that was the worst of it, cookie lovers watch out. They're coming for you next. Apparently, Oreo cookies contain Blue 1, which has been linked to kidney tumors.

So if your M-O is to get to the store over the next few years to create a stock-pile of your favorite snacks that could soon be no more, the good news is you have some time to figure out a plan of attack.

It's worth noting that many of the chemicals found in these foods are already banned in much of Europe.

Which States Are Involved in the Snack Ban So Far

While California has already passed The Skittles Ban, there are some other U.S. states taking action.

New York, Pennsylvania and Illinois have already advanced similar measures that target a total of 13 additives already banned in Europe because of their potential health risks. New Jersey and Missouri also are considering bans, according to reports.

If passed, companies would have to change their recipes or face legal action.
