‘Time’ Magazine’s List of Most-Influential Candy Bars is Hard to Swallow
What candy bars have had the biggest impact on the world and the chocolate bar industry? 'Kit Kat' is at the top of the heap, according to 'Time' Magazine, who interviewed candy experts and historians to compile its top 13. (See list below.)
'Kit Kat'? Really? According to the publication it was the first candy bar to be marketed around sharing (break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar), and the first to obtain a global following, blah, blah, blah.
Where the hell are 'Reese's Peanut Butter Cups'? They're a perfect combination of the two greatest foods ever known to man!
Maybe you remember the ad campaigns from back in the day: "You got your peanut butter on my chocolate!" "You got your chocolate in my peanut butter!" Two people would then sample each other's concoctions, giving way to the tagline, "Two great tastes that taste great together."
And 'Snickers' only ranks fifth? #Fail.
