A Salute To My Momentary Favorite - The Three Musketeers

Okay, so I know you're probably like, what?! Your name is Anita Cookie.  Shouldn't you be writing about cookies??  Well, the truth is I do love cookies.  I love cake, and pie, and tarts, and freakin' bacon cheeseburgers for that matter, but there is nothing like my love for candy bars.  There are so many different kinds, combos, and flavors.  There are retro candy bars, candy bars of the future, and candy bars that are just plain good.  My momentary favorite, as it says in the title, is 3 Musketeers.
Actually, it's a very simple bar for me to start with.  I'm usually very drawn to the like everything but the kitchen sink kinda desserts, but there's just something about simple.  I've been drawn to it lately.

Mmmmm... 3 Musketeers.  

A light, I'd venture to say perfectly sweet, coating of Mars milk chocolate.  Just the right amount, covering a lovely pillow of chocolaty nougat love.  Ahhh, nougat, let's get the ball rolling on that age old nougat discussion!  Bet you didn't know there was one, huh??  So versatile but always yummy.  It shows up hard in Toblerone, super dense in Baby Ruth, and chewy, of course, in a Charleston Chew.  But when nougat come to the party in this sugary situation, it's light, soft, fluffy, and totally toothy.  I love how it's so airy it practically pops on your tongue, but at the same time still so rich.  Now richer chocolate taste?  I dunno, tastes the same to me, but that's not a bad thing!  I have always, and will always love me some 3 Musketeers bars.

I like to nibble the chocolate coating off and then let the nougat melt in my mouth.  I love how it gets all stuck in my teeth for a second before it completely dissipates, leaving only the lingering taste of chocolate

Stay tuned for my thoughts on Crunchy, and Lion bars.  Yummy!
