warning labels

Target had huge chocolate bars on clearance so I bought a 4.25oz Hershey's Special Dark. It's a good size hunk of chocolate, but not what I'd call ridiculous. I get it to work and I notice it's seriously got a warning on it:
Enjoy in moderation. One serving (5 blocks) contains 180 calories and 12g of fat.

Oh hell people. Chocolate is now in the same category as alcohol, where we have to get told "enjoy responsibly!" because someone's afraid down 1/4lb of chocolate in one sitting on a regular basis and have a damn heart attack... there are worse ways to go, am I right? It kinda made me want to eat the whole thing just to spite them, even though I bought it thinking it'd last me a week in my desk.

Along those same lines, why does the ceramic travel mug I bought say "CAUTION BEVERAGE IS HOT" across the silicone lid? I'm the one who puts the beverage in there, shouldn't I know whether it's not hot? Can I fill it with cherry slushie instead, then sue the company when I chug it and get brain freeze because I thought it'd be hot per the warning?

Yeah, I sound like old-timer rantypants, I know.
