SUPER CANDY BAR FOR THE SUPER BOWL

To honor the iconic candy brand’s 90th anniversary, the brains behind
Snickers decided, hey, what better way to celebrate that than with a
4,700-pound candy bar? Someone in the room then likely said, “There
is no better way!” and thus the “largest Snickers bar ever created” was
born.

The bar reportedly took more than 600 people to construct and used
caramel, peanuts, nougat and 3,500 pounds of chocolate to create the
“equivalent to more than 41,000 single-size Snickers bars.”

the Snickers commercial that will be played during the
Super Bowl on Feb. 2.
