I have in front of me a "standard" sized Mars Bar, from the chocolate vending machine at work.

Without consulting one; what mass is it?

42.5g
16(39.0%)
50g
3(7.3%)
56.7g
8(19.5%)
60g
5(12.2%)
62.5g
6(14.6%)
70.9g
0(0.0%)
75g
3(7.3%)


(Actually, I now only have the wrapper!)

Edit: The answer may be found in this entry.

Obviously to mention that now would prejudice the scientific nature of the study...

Tickybox!

And I seem to remember that it's some number of ounces, possibly 1, or 1/2, or something. It's a size that's come over from imperial.

Or maybe I'm just silly and wrong.

One thing I do know - they're not as big as they were when I was a child.

Or are they like houses, everything looks smaller when you revist as a grownup?

Thayactually made them smaller about 5 years ago. They did a survey and people found them too sickly... so they made them littler.

But that was only a little backtracking after many years of inflation. They're bigger now than they were when I was a kid.

I can't do this poll. I don't know how to measure candy bars in grams :P

A standard bar over here, tho, is about 2oz.
