EC Fun Friday Question: What Popular Candy Bar Was Named After a Horse?

Filed under: The Buzz |     

snickers

ANSWER: We could certainly make a case for 100 Grand, Oh Henry!, Old Faithful, or PayDay, but the correct answer is Snickers! 

Did you know, in the 1930s, Frank Mars invented a candy bar made up of chocolate, nougat, caramel, and peanuts. Reportedly, the tasty treat was named Snickers in memory of a horse that had passed away less than a month before. Snickers was a winning race horse that was raised on family’s Milky Way farm in Tennessee.

Another fun fact is that the original price of a Snickers bar was only a nickel!

Nowadays, we do things the other way around. We name our horses after candy bars, chocolate, and cookies! What sweet-named horses can you come up with?

Here are a few we thought of: Zippos Mr Goodbar, Smooth N Chocolatey, Zips Chocolate Chip, A Good Cookie, Huntin For Candy, Chips Hot Chocolate, Chocolua, The Cookie Baker, Huntin For Chocolate, The Candy Machine, and Zips Chips Ahoy.
