Mars getting their Snickers in a twist

    So Mars is recalling all the Snickers that were made in their Dutch plant after pieces of plastic were found in one.

    My guess is that the Snickers snicked a piece off the production line as they went through. What did they expect if they gave the product a stupid name like that? It's obviously trying to do what it says on the tin.

    What would you want to change the product name to to prevent a recurrence?

    I found a piece of an Aztec calendar in a chocolate bar once and was disappointed when I bought a Lion Bar that it didn't have a picture of some lions enjoying a drink, even on the inside of the wrapper. I didn't get my money back though.

    I stopped buying Marathons when they changed the name to Snickers. The name for some reason irritated me beyond belief!

    Hee hee. All this talk of confectionery meant I had to drag my sorry rs off the sofa and raid the cupboard. Only thing I could find was a Mars bar - I've had to mush it up looking fer bits of plastic. Still, it saved me the effort of chewing it :D

    The Vorpal Sword snickers too. And snackers presumably!

    One, two! One, two! And through and through
    The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
    He left it dead, and with its head
    He went galumphing back.

    I do believe that we in ye old America had the Snickers name first but in order to bring the UK further into our evil and crass empire, it was changed.....

    so that visiting Americans would be able to find some comfort chocolate?
