I have to admit that I don’t eat too much chocolate or other candy bars in general, but we all get a craving for something sweet every now and then! Snickers is one of those candy bars that I really like to indulge in every now and then and one brand that stands out from the rest. For me personally the ,a Snickers chocolate bar is a lot more filling than most other candy bars out there and that’s why I actually enjoy it when I occasionally have one.
Snickers are produced under the Mars Inc brand which is currently based in Virginia, USA. I did some research on the Snickers bar and found that it’s actually been around since 1930 and that it is actually named after one of the Mars family’s horses. Snickers can be found in most places around the world , from the US to the UK and even Australia. Snickers is also the most popular chocolate bar in the world , with global sales topping 2 billion US$ annually. So based on the facts it seems like I’m not the only one who likes and enjoys snickers candy bars….
I think what makes Snickers stand out from all other chocolates out there , are the peanuts that are added into the recipe. Each Snicker bar is said to contain approximately 16 roasted peanuts. Added to the roasted peanuts are nougat ,caramel and milk chocolate. I think it’s specifically this great combination that gives Snickers its distinct taste , i.e. the perfect blend between peanuts,caramel and chocolate! I like peanuts and I think that is probably why I enjoy this chocolate bar so much. ( Additionally Snickers also contain corn syrup, sugar, milk, butter, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, salt, eggs and flavoring.)
There are quite a couple of variations of the Snickers bar that have been tested on the market over the years and those include: different sized bars, Snickers Almond , Snickers Fudge and Snickers Peanut butter. However ,I’m still a big fan of the original ,tried and tested recipe and still prefer the original. The one variation that I’ve actually really come to like is the Snickers Ice Cream. Snickers Ice Cream actually does things different from other chocolate bar brands, as this is not simply just a frozen chocolate bar, but there is actual real ice cream on the inside , which simply melts in your mouth. Really delicious!
Anyways this article is not about whether chocolate bars are healthy or not , or which ones are more healthy than others. This is simply me saying that this is my favorite chocolate bar on the market and why I’m saying that. I don’t think having an occasional chocolate can do any harm…. For me Snickers have also come in very handy before , especially in certain situations where I just needed a quick snack and no proper meal options where readily available… So I think that if you haven’t had at least one snickers before , you should definitely go and have one soon!
