Nuts to the UK - America has resurrected the Marathon
Since 1990, the UK has been in a state of peanut-related turmoil. The name of the country's ninth favourite chocolate bar, Marathon, was laid to rest and the pan-global nonsense that is Snickers began appearing in newsagents and service stations. Apparently the UK was waiting for a peanut-enriched chocolate bar named after a horse, because it became the third favourite chocolate bar.
There was talk of a Marathon revival over a year ago, and petitions have been set up to have the named changed back, but it seems futile. Mars, Inc are determined that the Brits will continue to observe the worldwide brand of Sni- hang on, what the bloody hell is this?
Apparently this gestalt entity has been around for a few months on the other side of the Atlantic, but America decided not to tell us they'd stolen our heritage for the purpose of their energy bars. We ought to sail right back to the colonies and make them all drink tea again, the cheeky bastards.
