HOUSTONWelcome to Made in Texas, where we write about products made in the Lone Star State.

Today, we’re featuring the chocolate treat that’s earned the title of being the best-selling candy bar in America and the world, Snickers.

The product

Snickers are milk chocolate-coated candy bars, filled with peanuts, caramel and nougat.

The candy bar, created by Frank C. Mars, quickly became one of the planet’s favorite treats after its introduction in 1930, according to Mars Wrigley Confectioner — the American company that produces Snickers.

The treat, popular for its slogan “You’re not you when you’re hungry,” comes in a few other varieties including hazelnut, almond and peanut butter. Limited-edition flavors are also released throughout the year on holidays or special events.

You can also find Snickers-flavored products like ice cream, chocolate milk and coffee creamer.
