(CNN) – Some sweet news for chocoholics – the Kit Kat bar has been named the most influential candy bar of all time.

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

According to Time, 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, and how can you forget that catchy ‘gimme a break" jingle?

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