Snickers announces it's changing its name back to Marathon after nearly 30 years. Has your favourite sweet, cereal or other product had a name change?

I remember Marathon becoming Snickers and wondering why.

We need to get those “run a marathon - I can only just eat a marathon” jokes in quick.

I've heard they're bringing out a snack version of snickers called snackers, and they're making one with a kit kat inside, and calling it 'Kikt in the Snackers'.....It needs working on, I think...

It’s not a Marathon but I watched a programme filmed in A Cadbury’s factory which was very interesting.
Cadbury sell around 500 million Creme Eggs each year and they are only put on sale from January to Easter.

Not very good for you :(

Will they revert back to the marathon size.

They reduce the size instead of putting the price up until eventually it’s so small nobody will want it.

My grand dad used to give me brazil nuts.
He had false teeth, so could only suck the chocolate off.
