The price of chocolate candy is going up.

Mars says it's raising its prices by an average of seven percent.

The company makes M&M’s, Snickers, Twix and Skittles.

It's the first price increase in three years for Mars and is blamed on rising commodity costs.

Last week, Hershey announced plans to raise its chocolate prices for the same reason.
