About 30 years ago, Snickers had TV commercials like “Hungry? Grab a Snickers!”, “Packed with peanuts, SNICKERS really satisfies you!”.
According to Wikipedia, it is sold by Mars Co., an American manufacturer of food products since 1930. The initial price was five cents a piece.
Snickers consist of nougat (a kind of soft candy made by boiling nuts and dried fruits in low heat) topped with caramel and peanuts.
You can enjoy the chewy nougat texture and the crispy peanut texture at the same time.
It’s coated in milk chocolate; it’s quite rich and sweet.
It’s filling and perfect whenever you’re feeling peckish :)
