Mars has denied rumours that it is gearing-up to bring back the Marathon bar.

Media reports have suggested that Marathon bars, which were rebranded as Snickers two decades ago, could be making a come back after Mars re-registered the name as a trademark in the UK.

However, the confectionery giant told just-food that there is “no news” on this front.

“There are currently no plans for this to be happening,” a spokesperson for the group commented.
