No Snickers Eaters Run Marathons
In Ireland and the UK, Snickers candy bars went by the name Raiders. In 1990, the world decided that Ireland and the UK should get with the times, and thus, they converted their Marathons way of life to Snickers. Either way, the name doesn’t make very much sense, does it?
Did you know that in the past, Mars also promoted a Marathons candy bar in the US? It had nothing to do with Snickers; it was an entirely separate line of chocolate bars with a twisty and twirly design. Sadly, the American Marathons candy bar went the way of the dinosaurs in the 1970s.
