I’m not sure I’ve ever heard someone call a candy bar “INFLUENTIAL”, especially not a respectable news publication . . . but in 2014, you gotta grab eyeballs however you can get ’em.

“Time” magazine just released a list of the 13 most influential candy bars of all time.  What makes a candy bar influential?  Here are the top five, with explanations.

1.  Kit Kat.  Quote, “Beyond being the first candy bar to be marketed around sharing, which helped turn chocolate into a social snack, Kit Kat was also the first to gain a global following.”



2.  Hershey’s Milk Chocolate.  Quote, “Nestle may’ve invented milk chocolate, but Hershey’s made it mainstream.  By building its factory right in the middle of dairy land . . . [they] powered an unparalleled distribution network.”



3.  Toblerone.  Quote, “Debuted in 1908 [as] the first bar to debut with a filling.”



4.  Nestle Milk Chocolate.  Quote, “Prior to this bar’s introduction in 1875, bar-form cocoa was bitter, chewy, and dark.”



5.  Snickers.  Quote, “More than 80 years after its launch, this is the world’s best-selling [candy bar].  Although it may not have revolutionized candy bar taste or distribution, it’s unparalleled at selling itself.”
