How sweet

The quote: “Everyone likes a nice bottom.”

A Googling of that phrase yields only 39 results, but according to Trademarkia, those five words were trademarked in October 2019 by Mars, Incorporated — the manufacturer of Maltesers, 3 Musketeers, M&M’s, Twix, and other confections.

Mars probably meant “bottom” in the sense of “rump” or “caboose.” But when photos of the Maltesers packaging start circulating on the r/gay subreddit, you know people are taking the phrase to a whole new level.
