Mars is a chocolate bar manufactured by the American chocolate company Mars, incorporated. It first came around in 1932 in Slough, United Kingdom and was advertising as being made with Cadbury’s own chocolate. In 1932 Mars started off by just renting a factory in Slough and only had 12 members of staff, and since then the company has only grown in size and will continue to do so. The basic recipe has remained almost identical with only the size of the bar and the proportions of the main components changing over the years. With minor variations, this variation is sold worldwide with the exception of the US. The product is so distinctive world wide because it will always be found in the black wrapper with red, gold-edged lettering which has stuck over the many years this product has been around.
