    We need to get 100,000 signatures to get mentioned in parliament but such will be the effect I predict Snickers will be a thing of the past by the end of the year and our beloved Marathon will be back.
    Next year the same petitioning and change Starburst back to Opal Fruits

    What about Quality Street?
    Keep the name.

    I'd prefer it if they reintroduced the old weight rather than the name though.

  5. Can I ask why? Snickers was the original brand-name, created by the USA company Mars, Incorporated.

    Sold as "Marathon" in this country, due in part to another sweet called Snickers. Now out of production.
     
  7. Now I'm confused. The Wikipedia page for Snickers said they were sold as Marathons in the UK until about 1990.

    That'd be more or less correct. I didn't think it was over 20 years since they changed the name though.
     
  9. Well, good luck with the petition, anyway.

  11. I am more concerned with the shrinking size than the name change.

    Will they restore Marathon to its original size?
