Candy is tasty and sometimes it's comforting--but have you ever thought of it as being influential?

Time Magazine is calling the Kit Kat bar the most influential candy bar of all time.

One reason is it's hard to forget its catchy jingle, with the "Gimme a Break" lyrics.

Time Magazine interviewed candy experts and historians to determine which 13 bars had the biggest impact on the chocolate bar industry.

According to Time Magazine, Kit Kat was the first candy marketed around the concept of sharing.

Hershey’s Milk Chocolate took second place on the list.

Toblerone, Nestle's Crunch Bar and Snickers round out the top five.
