3 Musketeers – All for One, One for All!

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?

  1. I think my mainstream flavor would be Amaretto (i.e., almond flavoring, not pieces of almonds), and my wild flavor would be curry, or perhaps curry coconut. Both flavors, of course, would be of the dark chocolate and not milk chocolate variety.

  2. I too love 3 Musketeers! The mint one is my favorite. I would love to see Dark Chocolate Parmesan. Sounds weird, but it works and it is delicious. I would also go for Dark Chocolate Figs or Amaretto or Dark Chocolate Amaretto Figs.

    • Figs are a good choice. They have a subtle texture and sweetness which adds well to the recipe without ever being overpowering. I like adding figs when I bake an apple pie.

Sit. Eat. Tell me what you think...
