Kit Kat bars are the most influential candy bars? Really?

Some of the cut-price chocolates on sale at Sainsbury's, including Contrast, Quality Street, After Eights, Kit Kat, Milk Tray, Black Magic, Mars and Roses. 

Frankly, I've got a quibble or two.

Time went out and interviewed "candy expertsto figure out which are the most influential candy bars of all times.

First of all, what?

Second of all, how do they only rank Snickers number 5?

And finally, Kit Kat comes out on top?

Scraping pretty low for things to name "whatever of the year," aren't you, Time?
