It's Official.

3 Musketeers is the least desirable of the left-over Halloween candy in my office. Just two days ago, this pie pan was over flowing with a variety of mini candy bars, but now look at it! I felt so bad for them, I actually ate one this morning just to show some mercy on the poor, forgotten, 3 Musketeers bar. Sitting there, all rejected, passed by for other more delicious candies. It broke my heart. Ok, that's a lie. I wanted chocolate and I didn't care what form it came in. I have to admit though, it wasn't the easiest way to get my chocolate fix. 

There's nothing interesting about the 3 Musketeers bar. It has a thin chocolate covering and some sort of mystery filling on the inside. No caramel, no peanut butter, no cookie center, no nuts. Let's face it, it's lackluster! But on the other hand, it is chocolate. (Kind of.)

What's the last candy to go at your house/office?

3 Miskateers originally had three pieces in one package, vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate. Only chocolate survived the WWII rationing.

Also an obscure Mars Co. fact: Snickers is named after the Mars family's favorite horse.

The last thing left at our office is these Jolly Rancher hard candy things. I've never seen them before. They aren't bad, but lets be honest, they're no Kit Kat or Twix.

Send those to ME! I love them, and 3 musketeers is one of the least bad for you candy bars! It was actually listed on eat this not that's EAT list. Apparently everyone in your office is interested in maxing our their indulgence.

Thankfully, the kids idea of good candy is different than ours. They go for the smarties and dum dums that Ryan and I never eat.

Our undergraduates did a trick-or-treating activity on Monday. My office gave me a ziploc bag of candy with probably a dozen different types, and I just let students take their favorite piece. The Smarties were by far the least popular (which didn't surprise me). There were a fair number of Three Musketeers left, but I thought it was just because they were the mini ones. I'd take a Three Musketeers over a Snickers any day, so it never occurred to me until now that they'd be left over because they were unpopular.

Right now, Smarties are THE most popular candy (even pre-Halloween) being munched by pre-teens...no idea why this is, but I'm telling you, it's back with a vengeance! To me, candy serves no purpose without some chocolate included, so I'd be grabbing one of those 3 Musketeer bars for each pocket and heading back to my desk! :)

I just left a novel of a comment, and I super disappointed it didn't take. The gist was, my inlaws gave me dark chocolate mint 3 Musketeers bars for Easter, and as someone who hates 3 Musketeers anyway (They are the worst kind of chocolate, except my tootsie rolls) I thought they were disgusting. So yes, I have to agree with your conclusions. 3 Musketeers are the worst, in all forms.

I was surprised at how many children, when given the choice, took suckers and smarties! I agree with the writer who said that candy must have chocolate attached in order to have any value to me. The more chocolate the better! And the dark chocolate mints ones I would have taken gladly!

I like 3 Musketeers! The nerd-tastic artist in me thought, "They're like a Malievich painting in a gallery full of Pollocks!" Translation: they're a nice, simple treat after lots of candy bars with so much going on. :) I often find that Mary Janes and other older candies like that are the last to go. I'm all for the chocolate first, too! I DO love Smarties, too, though.

I like 3 Musketeers! They're a nice break from the busy-ness of other candy bars. And I do feel like I'm making a healthier choice! (Well, healthier than another candy bar or a deep fried 3 Musketeers...not healthier than a banana or something...)
