Ok to begin this blog, I’ll admit it is kind of a silly topic but a fun one to end the course with! For fun I asked a friend what I should write about for my last blog post for the course, and she came up with “If the Snickers chocolate bar was named after a horse today, which one would it be and why?”. So here I am, writing about one of my favourite chocolate bars and horses. I will go into some reasons why I have chosen the names, and try to make this post as exciting as possible.
A little back story about the Snickers chocolate bar was named after a horse in the United Kingdom by the Mars family in 1930, but the candy was publicized as “Marathon” over seas until 1970 the company decided to stick with Snickers. The chocolate bar is made up of nougat , caramel, peanuts and a chocolate coating. The chocolate bar was named Snickers because of it’s colour and it offered a lot of energy for anyone who needs it when they are hungry like in the commercial posted below.
If I were to choose a name of another famous race horse I would go with “Best Mate” for the name of a chocolate bar. The reason why I chose Best Mate for a name is because of his colouring. It resembles also the chocolatey coating with a hint of caramel colouring on his nose. The term Best Mate is the United Kingdom means over here to the equivalent of “Best Friend”. So having a chocolate bar when you are hungry and when ever you need a pick me up, is almost like having a best friend to make you happy and have more energy.
For my last horse name I’m going to choose “Lottery“. Why I chose Lottery as my last name is because for one of the most obvious reasons, why not? When you are starving and need a quick snack and bite into a Snickers, it feels like you are winning a lottery.
So if you had the the choice of a name for the Snickers chocolate bar, what would you choose? And why?
