    Really cool to see this article pop up in my feed.

    My grandfather, Joe DeLapp Sr., was the first Head of Advertising for the company after overseeing the acquisition of his previous employer - Peter Paul (remember Luden’s Cough Drops)?

    GRAMPA JoeJoe went on to be the SVP of Sales and Marketing for Mars Inc., and played a roll in quite a few cultural Americanisms, ranging from catchphrases like “Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t” to what I’ll mention next - just to name a few.

    JoeJoe was also an inductee into the Candy Hall of Fame (tue story) and is credited as the inventor of the Bite Sized Candy Bar, pretty much a staple of every Halloween and home party for the past several decades.

    JoeJoe and Mars Inc were also instrumental in the professional trajectories of American artists like John Falter and Normal Rockwell.

    This is just a snippet of our family history with Mars Inc.
