History Of The "SNICKERS" Candy Bar

Made with a nougat base, topped with peanuts and caramel, and surrounded by milk chocolate, the Snickers candy bar has become the most popular chocolate bar in the world. In order to look at the history of Snickers candy bar, it's a good idea to also take a quick look at the history behind the man and company that invented it. The Mars family has always taken a very private stance on their family, so pictures are not easily found of Frank Mars or other family members. What we do know about this confectionary giant is that Franklin Clarence Mars was born in Minnesota on September 24, 1883. At an early age, he helped his mother make candy in their home kitchen. After high school, Frank began selling candy and later started various businesses. In 1911, Frank and his wife were producing candy out of their Tacoma, Washington kitchen. Later, in 1920, Frank and his wife Ethel moved to Minnesota and started the Mar-O-Bar company. 
 
 
 
 

By the end of the 1920's, the Mars family was very successful, and they were on their way to becoming a world leader in chocolate snack bars. Can you imagine being the world leader in chocolate snack bars?! I can't.  Snickers was invented in 1930 and was a big hit. Over 80 years later, it continues to be a big hit! In 1934, a few short years after he invented the Snickers bar, Frank Mars died at the age of only 50. His legacy continues to live on in the MILLIONS of Mars candy bars sold every day! The Snickers was formerly called "Marathon" in the UK, but the name was changed to "Snickers" worldwide in 1990. Let me know if you like snickers as much as I do!

Very interesting how Snickers used to be called marathon because it would've been so weird to call it that.

Everyone of us commit mistakes and pay for the charges but through that we learn to know what is right from wrong. We need to be careful of our actions and we should stay humble, seek assistance from God. If you have God in you, you will forget the bad things that are happening in you life, you became strong and never affected of it. So, let God stay in your heart and mind. Have a good day! I hope I inspire everyone here.
