Marathon’s are back!
« on: March 08, 2005, 06:32:08 pm »
This is just stupid.

I'm sure we all remember snickers being called marathon.
Well in the us they now have an energy bar called snickers marathon.
Original!
Never should've changed the name in the 1st place :(

The thing is though, Snickers was never called Marathon in the US - or anywhere else in the world. The trademark was registered in the UK first, then when they tried to register it elsewhere, Mars discovered another product called Marathon had been developed. Hence Snickers was born in the US.

And it's rumoured they changed the recipe along with the name - I wouldn't know as they would be my last resort where chocolate is concerned.

It's nothing like a Snickers.  It's not as salty and the nuts are bigger.

If I say it reminded me of a snickers then it reminded me of a snickers. It was a factual comment. I didn't say it was  like a snickers did I? Duh!

Yes - and pretty nice it is too, though absolutely loaded with fat.
