"I can smell it; I want to eat it," Robert Galvan told The Herald Wednesday. "I just can't do it."

Galvan discovered the tooth when he took the first bite out of the Snickers bar Friday. He subsequently found the tooth had snapped off when he took a trip to the dentist.

"I'm relieved," Galvan told The Herald. "You could catch hepatitis from that."

Galvan purchased the bar Oct. 22 at a gas station in Plainfield, Wis, when he also bought two other bars, a ritual he has struck with since has been employed at Fahrner Asphalt Sealers in Plover, Wis.

According to USA Today, Snickers bar sales decreased over seven percent to right below 413 million within the past year.

This was very similar to price decreases, manufacturer Mars saw for 3.5 ounce candy bars throughout all of its products, at a rate of 7.7 percent. The product has an average price of $1.11. Approximately 412.81 million bars have been sold, which have raked in $456.91 million in profit.

Snickers have existed since 1930, and have been the subject of their "You're not you when you're hungry," advertisements, which include celebrities.

Mars launched the campaign for the product while millions of people tuned in for the 2010 Super Bowl football game between the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Green Bay Packers. Betty White served as the company's inaugural celebrity for the ad where she was playfully knocked down during a backyard football game.

The bar has 250 calories, 12 grams of fat, 4.5 grams of saturated fat, 27 grams of sugar, and 120 milligrams of sodium according to information on Snickers.com.

There are Snickers bars, Snickers 2 To Go bars, Snickers Miniatures, and Snickers Fun size.
