Does anyone remember the name of a candy bar that was braided carmel covered in chocolate? I have been trying to remember it all day, but can’t. I’m pretty sure it was in a red wrapper.
I think it was called a marathon bar…was it about a foot long and was the yummiest candy ever…
Yep, that was a Marathon bar.

She told me she loved me like a brother. She was from Arkansas, hence the Joy!
I remember eating that candy bar as a kid and having the thing last for a couple of days since the caramel was so chewy and the bar was so long. Yum…that was a great candy bar. Do they still make it?
Wasn’t it called a Curlie Wurlie?
It’s a Curly Wurly in Britain (and now bite size Curly Wurlie Squirlies - much easier to handle), but was a Marathon when I was growing up in the US. To add to the confusion, when I wanted a Marathon I was handed a Snickers! (but this is probably old ground - I know the American renaming of old favourites comes up at least twice a year among my friends)
Like the 100,000 Dollar Bar became 100 Grands. Guess there were to many syllables before.
Quick Claude: I’m Quick Claude. I do everything fast, matey!
Parrot on QC’s shoulder: Aaawk! It’s Marathon Man!
Marathon Man: Betcha can’t eat a Marathon bar fast… Quick Claude.
Quick Claude tears off wrapper and jams bar in mouth.
QC: Ummmm. Chewy…
I hate me. I’m gonna be a big hit at the home.
