If, as the cliche holds, a dog biting a man is not news but a man biting a dog is, our news antennae should quiver with excitement when a candy company comes out in favor of eating less sugar.

The quivers reverberate when the company is soloing. Much of the food industry opposes the Food and Drug Administration's proposed rule requiring disclosure of added sugars on product labels. Mandatory labeling of added sugars, the industry says, will cost a ton. It won't convince consumers to give up candy. And it could confuse consumers, as there's already a total-sugars labeling requirement.
