Snickers owner Mars has denied Twitter gossips that it’s changing the format of its top selling confectionery to remove so-called “dick veins’ from its surface.
Following a Twitter kerfuffle when someone noticed a smooth Snicker, Mars said: “contrary to what’s trending on Twitter… THE VEINS REMAIN!”
Phew, that’s a relief then although some Snickers fans may now be having second thoughts.
Chocolate brands have had their moments before though. Cadbury’s Flake raised many a guffaw in its time as ad agencies got rather carried away by its sensual properties. Extra amusing from such a seemingly high minded, once Quaker-owned company.
