Remember the trusty Marathon chocolate bar? Of course you do …if you can remember back to 1990! Back then, the manufacturer Mars decided to rebrand Marathon as Snickers to bring it inline with it’s global operation.
Snickers is the best selling chocolate bar of all time with annual sales around the world of £1 billion …that’s a lot of chocolate and peanuts!
Apparently the marathon name has been re-registered as a UK trademark and the company is to use the original name for a three month trial. I never did care much for the snickers name but how about you, what do you prefer?
