A Long, Long, Long, Long Time

Anybody remember the Marathon Bar, the candy that lasts a long, long, long, long time? It was a pretzel-looking chocolate candy bar that supposedly took all day to eat. I fondly remember getting them as a kid. Then, the candy bars started to disappear, never to be seen again.

Fast forward to May 2004. I finally discovered what happened. Apparently, sales weren’t sufficent for Mars, Inc., so they discontinued the candy in 1981. Now, sadly, my search is over. Or is this a partial solution?

  1. Ya know, I saw one of those things in a convenience store a couple of weeks ago and I thought the same thing. I can’t tell you how disappointed I was to find out that it wasn’t the old Marathon bar that I used to eat as a child. I’m bummed. 🙂
