While the Mars company was founded in Washington and has always been based centrally out of North America, the Mars bar itself is a native-to-England “invention.” It was first produced in 1932 in Slough, England by a businessman named Forrest Mars. Over 200 million mars bars are sold in the UK and Ireland every single year. Interestingly, what is called the Milky Way in the US is identical in taste and appearance to the Mars Bar in the United Kingdom.
