Do you have a sweet tooth?  Many of us do, and Halloween, Christmas, Easter and Valentine's Day are our favorite holidays by far.  There are times when we have our more shameful moments (the day after a holiday candy sales, stealing candy from a younger sibling or a child, or having a secret stash hidden in your house where you can keep it away from family), one thing is certain, candy bars are the most portable of the candy family.  

The first candy bar was invented in 1847 by Joseph Fry and his son.  The technique involved creating a cocoa paste and forming chocolate bars out of it.  Even though Cadbury is mostly known today for their creme-filled eggs, in 1849, Joseph Cadbury and Fry joined forces to create their candy bars, making them a leading confectioner.  One of our leading candy bars, the Snickers bar, which was previously known as the Mar-O-Bar, was invented by Frank Mars and named after one of his favorite horses.  In coordination with the 1972 release of "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," Quaker Oats (which financed the film) released a candy bar, for fans to consume.  Pretty sweet marketing, don't you think?
