10 Candy Bars That Changed Our World

10. Milky Way Bar – Since 1923

Coming in at number 10 on our list is the Milky Way bar, made by the Mars confectionery company. It was the country’s first filled candy bar and was reportedly an overnight success for the company when it was created in Minnesota in 1923 by Frank Mars (costing only a nickel). The American bar is made of chocolate-malt nougat and topped with caramel and milk chocolate. As reported in Time magazine, this bar’s influence is far-reaching because it was the first candy bar to be inspired by a real dessert: the milky way malted milkshake. Many other candy bars have followed suit since then.
