(WHTM) – The Calder Cup final starts Thursday night and Coachella Valley decided to make a chocolaty mess as a diss to the Hershey Bears, the only issue is they used the wrong chocolate.

Coachella Valley’s mascot decides that chocolate isn’t allowed during the Calder Cup finals and is seen grabbing M&M’s off the shelf and throwing them on the ground, stomping on them, and even melting them in a pot.

The mascot apparently didn’t do enough research as M&M’s aren’t made by The Hershey Company, they are made by Mars, Incorporated.

The Hershey Bears retweeted Coachella Valley’s video and said, “Who’s gonna tell them…”

Although, Mars, Incorporated has a factory located in Elizabethtown in Lancaster County.

Mars, Incorporated was founded on June 23, 1911, and is one of the largest candy and pet food companies in the world. The Hershey Company was founded in 1894 but originally incorporated the Lancaster Caramel Company to establish the Hershey Chocolate Company.
