Milky Way History

North America’s variant of Milky Way was created in 1923 by Frank C. Mars and originally manufactured in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Milky Way trademark was registered in the US on March 10, 1925. In 1924, the Milky Way bar was introduced nationally.

In June 1932, the bar was marketed as a two-piece bar. Four years later, in 1936, the chocolate and vanilla were separated. The vanilla version with dark chocolate coating was called Forever Yours and was marketed until 1979.  In 1989, Forever Yours was reintroduced and renamed as Milky Way Dark and later Milky Way Midnight.

In 2010, the Milky Way Simply Caramel bar went on sale, a version with caramel covered in milk chocolate and without nougat. In 2011, Mars introduced a small size Simply Caramel bar and were marketed as “Fun Sizes”.

In the late summer of 2018, Milky Way Fudge was introduced nationwide.
