Mars Believe

To show support for the England football team (soccer to us yanks) in the upcoming World Cup, Masterfoods is renaming their Mars bar to “Believe”. This is the first time since it was created in 1920 that the chocolate bar will change. The name will change later this month and will revert back to Mars after the tournament ends in July.

They have created a website to mark this occasion at http://www.marsbelieve.com/ though the only thing there right now is a countdown to the launch day of Believe. I’d love to have one of these wrappers! (hint, hint)

UPDATE: A kind fellow in the UK has said he has sent me one of the wrappers! Thanks, mate!

    I am Scottish and although I will be supporting England in the World cup (as Scotland didnt qualify), I still get annoyed at this move by Mars to distribute these rebranded bars in Scotland as well. This is just plain stupid. It’s basically an assumption that Scotland is somehow a ‘part of England’ which of course it is not. It’s certainly a part of the UK but this doesnt mean we should all be forced to have English football fever shoved down our throats (literally).

    How likely is it that this would happen the other way round with Londoners eating Mars Bars rebranded to urge them to ‘believe’ in the Scottish football team winning the World Cup (as unfeasable as that idea is)? hmm don’t think so.

    Must have 2 much money, that they are willing to lose profit on this over-the-top marketing………why do England always have 2 copy the Yanks and dramatise everything, if Scotland had qualified would they fix our pot hole roads far less change the name of a fattening sugar infested sweet.

    Says it all when you see how many retail outlets in Scotland are selling off ‘Believe’ Mars bars 2 for the price of one, etc, because they aren’t shifting off the shelves.

    Some bloke in Leith has jumped on the back of this, and is making a mint by selling t-shirts printed with ‘Believe…my a*se!’. I like his thinking!!!

    Since the topic is of Mars bars I will say one thing to the company – now that England are doomed in their failed attempt at the world cup, so can you be – I will never purchase another ‘Mars/Believe’ product in my lifetime – take that to the bank!

    At least you can still buy the Mars bar in the stores, no matter what the name. They don’t carry the Mars bars in the U.S. stores any more.

    Sorry to hear that Mars bars are only for sale in europe,we have been looking for one for about a year now and can only find snickers with almond. Actually Mars was changed once before in 1967 when they began using chopped almonds. Before that they had six whole sitting on top of that slab of white nougat, then was covered with the best milk chocolate ever. Why do candy makers always think they need to improve their product. Some things are perfect the way they are. So now Mars jouns the ranks of so many other candys that are no longer available. I only no of one place where you can still get a Zagnut bar, and it is in another state, so I stock up when I can. This was one other of my personal favorites. And what about Milk shake, Big Pay (no not payday), and Circus Peanuts (a little box of nuts with money inside), and Rex jelly, or Fizzies. Anyway I was glad to find out what happened to Mars. Now I guess we can stop looking.
