Marathon bars might make a comeback :)

Found 12th May 2008
I remember all the hoohaa at the time about them changing the name of Marathon bars to Snickers, no-one wanted it to change but they did it anyway, 18 years later it seems they might be changing it back! Woohoo

I never had the chance to have the whisper bar when that came back, have they stopped making them?

Dad is really pleased about this, in 18 years he hasnt had a snickers!

I am pleased about opal fruits, I had 1 pack of starburst and they werent the same - lemon was my favourte flavour and they got rid of it!

think so, they were selling them in Asda a few weeks ago.
I have to say I used to lurve Wispa bars and bought some the other week and they didn't taste like I remembered them, maybe it's just my taste buds have "matured" but I was really disappointed

Too true :thumbsup:

Always hated the name snickers - horrid.

Apparently they're changing Campbells soup to Erin Soup.

That's just wrong. Seen it in Ireland so am assuming its gonna be world wide

I wish they would make smarties tubs cylinder again!!!

with the letters on the plastic lid

it was probably a health and safety issue :x

I haven't bought a pack of Smarties since they changed!

I was clearing out a garage forecourt about 3 years ago, and come across a Marathon wrapper tucked in a corner, still in very good condition means it must have been there at least 15 years :w00t:

I have only seen Daim recently in Woolie's, Sainsburys and Asda, I thought it was a micky take sounds like an American person saying damn

It's changing to Batchelors soup in the UK as I bought a tin other day and it said it on the side.

Take it this never happened then?

:-( never happened. the daily mail lied to us?!

The name change from Marathon to Snickers in the first place was so successful, that IMO, they'd be stupid to change it back. Following the re-brand, the bar went from being Britain's ninth most popular bar to the third.
