    The stopped making anything called that in the US, although I believe
    there is an almond Snickers that if nearly the same thing. However, in
    many other parts of the world, the Mars Bar is essentially what we call
    a Milky Way.

    That's nothing compared tot he 150+ KIt Kat varieties, only some of
    which are listed at:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kit_Kat

    There's used to be a whole website listing every one that was ever
    produced, but I can't find it. The Japanese came out with some
    outrageous flavors (as they do with everything).

    But in later years, IIRC, the almonds were chopped & mixed in the
    nougat.

    <q Wiki>

    Chocolate bars sold as the Mars Bar vary in different regions of the
    world.[2] The American version (discontinued in 2002)[3] is no longer sold
    anywhere, and has been replaced with the similar (but not identical)
    Snickers Almond.[3] You can still find the original Mars bars in the
    United States in certain stores and online at places such as Amazon.com.

    </q>

    Man, check out that article. There are roughly two point seven metric
    buttloads of different kinds of Mars bars.

    Anyway, Snickers bars and Baby Ruths rule.

    Mars Bars in the US have always had almonds in them, but they seem to be
    extinct now. Although, there is a version of Milk Way with Almonds that
    seems to be virtually identical.

    A Mars Bar is a Milky Way - I haven't seen the big ones around, but
    they have the cute little mini ones for holidays - I just got a bag of
    'Easter' milky ways for a treat...

    The Milky Way in the UK is close to a US Three Musketeers, as I recall.
