Mars Bar

This is one of those small chocolate bars that I absolutely have to grab up and then immediately consume after purchasing. There’s something about the Mars bar that makes me automatically attracted to it.

I first discovered it while grocery shopping at Giant. I had wandered into the International foods aisle to see what was available, when I found this little gem. I bought one to try and peeled off the wrapper after I walked out. I was immediately hooked! And I knew I had to get at least two the next time I saw them 🙂

I’ve always wondered how advertising companies make chocolate bars like this look so gooey and make you want to devour them right away…

I think the texture might have something to do with it. It’s very smooth! I’m guessing it has to do with the lucious looking caramel inside. It’s a little hard to see in my picture, but there’s a layer of nougat on the bottom as well. I usually taste more of the caramel than the nougat, but sometimes when I take a bite, my mouth is full of nougat goodness and I have to take a moment to sit still and enjoy it.

When I first got a Mars bar at Giant, the back of it said it was made in the Netherlands. But the one here I had bought from World Market, and it says made in Poland.

I’ve also seen this bar at British food stores before, and then I was very confused of where this bar originated. I did a quick online search and I read that the Mars bar was first made in the U.K. It’s definitely born from the American Mars company, so maybe they’re just being manufactured at various locations overseas?

All I know is that it’s delicious, addictive, and I highly recommend it 🙂

    This is my favorite candy bar. I’ve tried the Milky Way and Mars bar side by side. Theoretically they should’ve been the same. Alas, the Mars bar made me more happy. Maybe the ingredients are more real and less synthetic than the Milky Way?
