The 3 Musketeers was introduced in 1932 and originally had three pieces of candy in one package, flavored vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. It became single bar made with all chocolate in 1945. It was marketed as the candy bar that was so big it could be shared with two friends.
3 Musketeers Memories
I always enjoyed a 3 Musketeers bar when I was a kid. I also would eat them right out of the freezer. I remember in grade school the teacher asked us to do a report on the three Musketeers. I could only relate to the three guys on the candy bar wrapper. Lucky for me I had two older sisters who brought out the old encyclopedia, and said ,just don't copy word for word.
When I had finished writing the report, I felt that it was still missing something. Oh but of course, it needed the three guys from my candy bar wrapper. I unwrapped a 3 Musketeers bar and began trying to draw them for the cover of my report. I don't remember how long it took me to draw them, but I did it using my colored pencils and my 3 Musketeers wrapper. I'm not sure what kind of grade the report got, but it did give me a reason to have a 3 Musketeers bar that night. ~ Jim from Pennsylvania
