If you follow Foodimentary’s page, you know that today is National Nougat Day. As usual, he has many interesting facts – linguistic, historical – which tie into the featured food item. My favorite candy car, the 3 Musketeers bar, is mentioned here. Over the years, 3 Musketeers has had different seasonal and limited edition flavors, which have included cherry, strawberry, French vanilla, raspberry, hot cocoa, marshmallow, coconut, and mint. What flavor 3 Musketeers would you like to see? Would it be more mainstream, like 3 Musketeers Cinnamon? 3 Musketeers Cappuccino? Or would your new flavor be more on the wild side, like 3 Musketeers Wasabi or Maple Bacon 3 Musketeers?
Manufactured by the M&M/Mars company, 3 Musketeers, along with Milky Way, Snickers, and M&M’s, are all gluten-free. A list of different gluten-free candies, highlighted by manufacturer, can be found at:
