How Did the Sweet Marie Chocolate Bar Get its Name and Where Did it Come From?

The Sweet Marie chocolate bar was inspired by a love affair.

In 1893, after an evening stroll through the streets of London, Ontario, with his girlfriend Marie, author Cy Warman was so smitten that he sat down in a park and wrote a poem called “Sweet Marie.”

When musician Raymond Moore read the poem he put it to music, and the song became a hit that inspired a chocolate company to create the Sweet Marie chocolate bar.

Cy married his sweet Marie, and together they raised four children in London.
