Mars Bars Popsicles Recipe

For those who know what a Mars bar is, you understand the pleasure of diving into a frozen treat like Mars Bars Popsicles. Mars bars aren’t everywhere, so if this Milky Way cousin is a favourite of yours, you may find yourself questing for this sweet treat at convenience stores wherever you go.

Mars Bar VS Milky Way

The Mars bar ingredients are similar to a Milky Way. Chocolate, Nougat, and Caramel (or the resemblance thereof) make up each of these bars; however, one enjoys more popularity in Canada, while the other reigns supreme in the UK.

Mars Bars are unique to the United Kingdom, although sometimes they pop up in specialty shops here and there. If you ask most people, they’ll tell you that Mars bars are the same thing as a Milky Way. In one way they are almost right; however, these similar-looking treats are more different than they let on. When you look at the two side by side, it’s obvious that they are not identical. There is something that causes their overall look to change even though they appear to have the same ingredients and the same composition. As mentioned above, Mars bars crumble more easily and have a softer chocolate coating.

Why Mars Bars Popsicles?

Mars bars crumble easily and have a soft chocolate coating. This makes them more ideal for freezing and using them in a popsicle recipe.

A Very Brief History

The history of the Mars Bar is that Mars bars started out with the Milky Way recipe. It was merely altered with comparable ingredients. The Mars bar was created by Forrest Mars, the son of Frank C. Mars, the inventor of the Milky Way. The ingredients differ throughout the bars’ composition, but it’s true that the basic components (chocolate, caramel, nougat) are essentially the same. So, you can substitute a Milky Way for a similar tasting treat. I still don’t know why this family feud began or why Mars was made in England. Milky Way is from Minnesota.
