Some people running…a Snickers! Ha ha ha etc

Marathon bars were renamed Snickers in 1990, which means we’ve had nearly 30 years of weak jokes along the lines of ’I’m not doing a marathon – I’ll do a Snickers though!” Hilarious.

Mars is revitalising the lolz by bringing Marathon back, for a limited Morrisons-exclusive ‘retro edition’ run, until December. Mars has form here, having pulled a similar move with Opal Fruits in 2008.

As Brexit approaches, we wonder if this comfortingly old-school move will hold any appeal. The campaign to reclaim ‘Jif’ from the PC brigade starts here!
