3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp Bar
Not long ago I saw a few new varieties of some candy bars I grew up eating on sale in one of our nearby CVS stores. We have two of these places within a mile of my house and they are much more an a block and a half apart. I'm surprised they have survived for years now but depending on the direction you are traveling maybe it is easier to get to one over the other. One is certainly larger than the other even though the smaller one is a free-standing building with a Minute Clinic in it. I found these at the larger CVS on sale as "buy 2, get 1 free."
The 3 Musketeers brand has been around a lot time as you may recall from our Old Time Candy features. This is a new take on that bar which is actually two bars of cookie bottoms with some of the chocolate cream and then covered in milk chocolate. The milk chocolate and the fluffy part is very familiar to those of you who have eaten 3 Musketeers but the cookie part tasted stale and the crunch, well, I don't really want that when I eat a 3 Musketeers, do you? The cookie part was also very moisture absorbing and dried my mouth out. Yes, I remembered Moderation and gave the other bar to another person.
Have you tried this? What did you think about it compared to the traditional 3 Musketeers?
