Everyone has a favorite candy. But whether you're partial to the Snickers, Butterfinger or Baby Ruth, you may not be biting into the one with the most influence.

Turns out, the Kit Kat bar is seen as the most influential chocolate bar of all time.

1. It was the first candy based marketed around the concept of sharing. (Can you say, "Break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar"?)

2. It was one of the first candies to have a global following – You should see some of the crazy international flavors it comes in, like edamame and sweet potato.

3. Besides the Hershey bar, it's the oldest candy around. It was invented back in 1911. Hershey beat it by 11 years. (Yahoo)
