The One-Pound Snickers – They call it “Slice ‘n Share”.

A short post today about a big candy bar.

I collect current candy packaging as well as the vintage stuff, and I’ll be honest, I don’t eat everything I buy.  If I did, I’d have to buy a new wardrobe every few months.  This is especially true for especially large candy bars.

Last month, I found something new in the realm of really big candy bars.  A one-pound Snickers bar.

For decades you’ve been able to buy giant Hershey bars, and even giant Hershey Kisses.  But in the last few years, they’ve come out with a one-pound pair of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, too.  It would appear these have all been a success, because it’s led to this:

Snickers - Slice N Share - the Giant 16 ounce Snickers!

That’s a standard-sized bar right in front of it.   It’s kind of crazy, but probably perfect for birthday parties and similar occasions.

And that’s all for today.

      Nathan,

      I don’t think these are available in Australia. Not even sure of you can still get them in the States.

        They are sold at truck stop locations. I held one just yesterday and it was roughly $12.00 here in upstate New York.

    Hmm…Why does this remind me of Mr. Pitt? ;) (from the 90s sitcom Seinfeld)
