Family-owned for over 100 years, the Mars candy company was founded by a man who learned his candy-making trade from his mother, in the kitchen of their Minnesota home. Producing and selling fresh candy became a family business, and in 1923, Mars candy bars became famous with the invention of the Milky Way bar, followed by the legendary Snickers bar in 1930. Fast forward to today, and Mars Wrigley Confectionery is now ranked the 6th largest privately held company in the United States by Forbes and operates in five segments globally with 20 manufacturing facilities in the US. This company was one of the first to answer the demands of its customers by pledging to eliminate artificial colors in its candy products and continues to innovate the industry by following the principals of its founding father every step of the way.
Mars candy brands include the most recognized in the world like the famous M&M, which is a candy-coated chocolate pastille available in flavors such as Milk Chocolate, Peanut, Dark Chocolate, Almond, and Peanut Butter. Introduced in 1979, the Twix bar, which is a dual cookie bar topped with silky caramel and covered in milk chocolate, became an instant hit as one of the first multi-textured treats. Mars Inc not only produces the most popular chocolate products in the world but has also mastered the fruity candy niche with the chewy, bite-sized rainbow of flavors known as Skittles, and the luxuriously chewy, mouthwatering Starburst, which comes in Fruit Chews, Minis, Gummies, and Jellybeans. When looking for the perfect candy, chewing gum, or chocolate bar to satisfy everyone’s tastes, you can’t go wrong with the vast selections from this legendary confectioner available at Candy Warehouse!
