Pendergast Candy Company in Minneapolis made a new chocolate bar called the "Emma" in the 1920s, but accidentally put too much eggwhite in the mixture making it twice as thick as it should have been. So they renamed it "Fat Emma".

The fluffy bar was quite popular and the filling was known as "minneapolis nougat" but it proved really expensive to make so it died out.

Mr Mars found a cheaper way of making the bar and the Milky Way was born.
