Here inHolland snickers were always called snickers for as far as I remember,didn't know you called them different :confused:

I think it was just here in Ireland and England that they were know as Marathons. So I suppose they just decided to let us join in on the fun :p

where is my friend Neptune Rose she loves a good chocolate post her favourite subject.

Personally speaking its just the Americans dictating their power to little old us again.

They tried to change the name of Walkers crisps as well till they realised it would be a marketing disaster
