Trivia: Which candy bar was named after its inventor’s horse?
Correct Answer: Snickers
So why is this answer correct? : One of the most recognizable candy bars in the world got its name from a horse. Frank Mars (of the Mars Company) invented this chocolatey peanut bar nearly 100 years ago in 1930. He decided to name the candy after his favorite horse, Snickers, though this isn’t the only name this candy bar has gone by. Up until recently, it was called “Marathon Bar” in the United Kingdom.
