Considered as a classic among confectionary aficionados, 3 Musketeers chocolate is a treat that will truly delight both young and old!
The Start of the Legend: From Mars Comes Some Tasty Chocolate Treats!
Created by chocolate giant, Mars, way back in 1932, 3 Musketeers continued to be a choice treat through the years. With virtually no changes made on the recipe since its inception (it is that good!), this chocolate treat did have some flavors introduced every now and then.
But nothing beats the excellent chocolate flavor that 3 Musketeers is famously known for. From being a staple during Halloween to just being a sweet escape on just about any day, 3 Musketeers is a bar of happiness that assures anyone of smiles!
What’s in the Name?
Originally, 3 Musketeers come in three flavors in a single package. And these flavors were chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. So, 3 flavors = 3 Musketeers!
But because of various logistics and business demands (not to mention, wartime costs into the mix), Mars decided to cut on costs and focus on the most popular flavor. And that move still proved to be successful, with this candy chocolate still being packaged in a single flavor of chocolate.
What’s in the Package?
Simple does it for 3 Musketeers. And simple is the equation for one of the tastiest chocolate treats you’ll ever have! A milk chocolate bar with a whipped nougat center, each and every 3 Musketeers treat is packed with delight.
How is a 3 Musketeers Bar Made?
Quality is strictly controlled and managed when making a fresh batch of this amazing chocolate. Exclusively made only on select factories (one is found in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada; the others, in the U.S., at Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, and Chicago, Illinois), Mars definitely wants to retains the unique taste of this treat as close to the original as possible!
The nougat center is made with egg whites. The egg whites are whipped in such a way that the consistency is frothy and light. Next, sugar syrup is added into the frothy egg whites, until it results to a frappe form. Depending on the 3 Musketeers flavor to be made, additional flavoring is included into the frappe mix as well.
The nougat centers are generally cooked into a massive slab. From there, several cuts are made into what’s designated for a certain pack. These cut nougat centers now go through an enrobing process – essentially, the way for the outer layer of milk chocolate to coat the nougat centers.

Different 3 Musketeers Variants and Flavors to Try Out

Released on 2007, this unique 3 Musketeers variant replaces what the original release has with some unique and wonderful ingredients. Instead of milk chocolate, this uses dark chocolate instead. And instead of the whipped nougat center, a mint filling now completes the package. A unique and classy alternative if you want something else and more in enjoying products from this awesome brand!
Learning from the 3 Musketeers Mint release, the brand experimented further on how to maximize (and improve) its chocolate bar appeal with more flavors. And one fruitful experiment was the 3 Musketeers Cherry. Released on 2008, approximately a year after the 3 Musketeers Mint variant release, this amazing offer replaces the mint with a sweet Cherry flavor!
Another fruitful experiment, Raspberry now replaces the 3 Musketeers Mint’s center.
Oranges would now replace the 3 Musketeers Mint variant’s center!
