Snicker snicker

I snickered (pun intended) when I saw this sign taped to a box of Snickers bars in the grocery store.

A dollar and thirty-nine cents doesn’t get you a lot these days, so I’d like to think it’s a good deal for a sniker. But that begs the question: what is a sniker? Sounds like a good opportunity for round two of “Define It”! If you think you know what a sniker is, leave your clever definition in the comments section!

    • I believe (though I could be wrong) that they mean “low priced” as a descriptive phrase. However, it does sound awkward and had I been in charge, I would have worded it differently!

      “Sniker” totally sounds like a snake. Maybe a snake that eats Snickers bars?

      • keep up the great work.
        Had you never heard of a Marathon?
        I think it was a Euro thing, to make it more recognisable across Europe as Britain entered the European Economy.
        Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but we said then, leave the Marathon alone!
        Look what’s happened since, Europe’s in meltdown.

  1. So how is that pronounced? Long i or short i?

    Sneyeker or snik-er? Then of course the question is sneaked or snucked? Oh…. WordPress spell check doesn’t like snucked… but then what would they know eh?
