Everyone loves chocolates. And as a gift it has no alternative. Lets know some interesting facts on how the worldwide popular chocolates get their name.

Snickers

Surprisingly, with time, this chocolate bar became more popular than the candy it was inspired from. Innovated in 1930, Snickers got the name after the beloved horse of the family that owned Mars Inc. a company that made other chocolates including (Milky Way) too. Till 1990, the chocolate was re-named as ‘Marathon’, but afterwards, the company decided to change it back to ‘Snickers’.

Bournville

Did you ever think about the logic behind the name of your favourite Cadbury Bournville before buying it for your girlfriend/boyfriend? If not, then you must know that this dark chocolate has a 12 decades old history. This happened when two brothers-Richard and George Cadbury relocated their factory to Birmingham in England. They named the factory 'Bournville' after a local river known as Bourn; with 'Ville', a French word that means town.

Kit Kat

Inspired by the name of London’s West End jazz nightclub called ‘Kit Cat Club’, our very own Kit Kat was first produced in 1935 as Rowntree’s Chocolate Crisp and was renamed as ‘Kit Kat’ in 1937 when it began to be sold as the Kit Kat Chocolate Crisp.

Ferrero Rocher

Considered among the most popular chocolates, Ferrero Rocher was first introduced in the year 1982 and the initial of the name was inspired by the title of the inventor ‘Michele Ferrero’, while the second word ‘Rocher’ means to rock. Interestingly, the production unit of the chocolate is very restrictive, as no phones and notebooks are allowed inside the premises.

Milky Way

The first ever Milky Way was made in the year 1923 and the inspiration behind this bar was a popular malted shake of the time. The motive behind this innovation was to furnish the customers with a chocolate bar that had the same flavour as the milkshake.

Toblerone

Innovated by Theodor Tobler, this triangular shaped chocolate is inspired by the Mountain Matterhorn. Tastefully blended with a mix of almonds, honey and chocolate, the name of the chocolate is a confluence of the last name of inventor and the Italian word for ‘nougat’ called ‘torrone’.

Twix

Innovated in the year 1967, the name of this lip-smacking chocolate is basically a union of two words 'mix' and 'twin'. The logic behind the name is the soul of the chocolate pack that includes two bars each, tastefully blended with ingredients like chocolate, biscuits and caramel.
