Is 3 Musketeers one of the best candy bars?
3 Musketeers is definitely another classic candy bar. It’s probably been around for most of our lives and been a staple in just about any kid’s Halloween haul. If you don’t get at least one fun-size 3 Musketeer bar, is it even really Halloween?
The candy bar consists of a soft, fluffy nougat mouse that’s whipped with egg whites to make it the perfect light texture and is covered with a chocolate shell.
It’s very basic but very good. Really, when you surround anything with chocolate it makes it pretty good!. The basicness definitely represents the time it was made in. First introduced in 1932, the 3 Musketeers bar was the third candy bar ever created by the Mars Company.
Originally, it came in three different flavors: vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. Over the years, only the chocolate remained. This was mainly due to sugar rationing in WWII and Mars had to choose which of the three to make so they went with the chocolate. Excellent choice!
While this has not always been one of my favorites (I was much more interested in anything with peanut butter or that was sour as a kid), it has grown on me over the years and now I would not say no to one. And clearly, I’m not alone because Mars sells millions of the nougat-filled candy every year.
