Twix is a chocolate bar made by Mars, Inc., consisting of a cookie finger, topped with caramel and coated in milk chocolate. Being somewhat smaller in width than other confectionery bars, Twix bars are typically packaged in pairs. Twix, which stands for “twin sticks,” was first produced in the UK in 1967, and introduced in the United States in 1979.
Mars, Inc introduced Snickers in 1930, named after their favorite horse. The Snickers candy bar consists of nougat, peanuts and caramel with a chocolate coating. The bar was marketed under the name “Marathon” in the UK and Ireland until 1990, when Mars decided to align the UK product with the global Snickers name.
