NEW YORK - A panel of experts has voted one bar as having the biggest impact on the chocolate bar industry.

And the winner is? The most influential candy bar of all time is the Kit Kat bar.

Time Magazine interviewed candy experts and historians to determine which 13 bars had the biggest effect on the candy industry and the world. Time says the Kit Kat was the first candy to be marketed around the concept of sharing. It was also one of the first candy bars to earn a global following.

Hershey's Milk Chocolate took second place. Toblerone, Nestlé's Milk Chocolate and Snickers round out the top five.
