The Snickers candy bar was named after one of the favorite horses of Frank Mars, who created the Snickers candy bar and founded Mars, Inc. The idea for the Snickers bar came from an already existing snack that was made up of nougat, peanut, and caramel. Frank Mars added chocolate, put it in candy form, and started selling it wholesale. The Snickers bar quickly rose to being the world’s most popular candy bar and has sustained that to this day. Annual sales of Snickers bar total around two billion dollars with about 15 million Snickers bars produced every day, using about 100 tons of peanuts.
