In 1995, Snickers launched a website to support its sponsorship of Euro ’96, a pan-European football tournament. The website was groundbreaking in soliciting match previews and reviews from its visitors, who generated some 4,000 match reports, and the website won various international design, advertising and online community awards.
In the early 2000s, deep fried candy bars (including Snickers, and Mars bars) became quite popular at U.S. state fairs and in pubs around the U.K. and Australia, although they had been a local specialty in some North of England and Scottish fish and chip shops since at least the mid-1990s.
