The most influential candy bar of all time is not a Hershey Bar, Snickers, or a Baby Ruth. According to Time Magazine, the most popular candy bar is the Kit Kat Bar. Does that leave you scratching your head?
I wondered what sets the Kit Kat Bar apart to achieve such lofty honors as the “Most influential candy bar of all time.”
Here are the top 4 reasons:
4. It has a jingle that you cannot get out of your head. The “Gimme a Break” jingle has been used in some form in the United States since 1986.
3. It was in the works years before most of its modern competitors such as Snickers, Butterfinger, 3 Musketeers and the Milky Way.
2. It was one of the first candy bars to earn a global following.
1. Most importantly, the Kit Kat bar was the first candy to be marketed around the concept of sharing. We can all think about breaking off one of the Kit Kat bars and sharing it with a friend our spouse.
There really is something appealing about sharing and that is one of the classic traits all believers should possess. Here is what the Bible says about sharing:
Heb. 13:16: And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
So today take that message to heart. Nothing will make you more influential with those around you than learning the art of sharing. After all, it’s the Bible way. More importantly today, it’s the Christian way!
Think about it, and have a great day!
