Snickers to be called Marathon once again

Mars has announced they are going back to its original name of ‘Marathon’ which is ditched back in 1990.

The change is part of a retro special lasting three months with multi packs of 4 costing £1 in supermarkets.

Announcing the retro chocolate, Gemma Buggins, brand director for Mars, says: “Bringing the Marathon bar branding back for a limited time really was a no brainer.

“It’s a great way to celebrate over 85 years of Mars making chocolate in the UK and we hope this serves as a wonderful treat for fans of Snickers who remember when it was called Marathon!”
