1974 commercial for Marathon chocolate bar featuring some nice ladies! 🙂
In the UK and Ireland, it was originally sold under the name Marathon. Mars standardized many of its global brand names and the name was changed to Snickers in 1990. For 18 months before the name changed, the words “Internationally known as Snickers” were printed on the side of the Marathon wrapper. Following the name change, the bar moved from being Britain’s ninth most popular bar to the third most popular.
Mars has since re-registered the original name as a UK trademark. There is also a campaign to rename the bar: Bring Back Marathon

Distribution was increased to the rest of the UK during the following months. Rowntree Mackintosh was acquired by Nestlé in 1988, who continued the production of the Aero brand.
