I was really surprised to find these in Rite Aid the other day. I was on my lunch break and my friend needed to run into the store for some batteries. I killed my time pursuing the candy aisle, feeling pretty confident I’ve found most everything that needed finding this year. I then laid eyes on this bag, which really looks like another other normal, Easter themed 3 Musketeers bag, and saw the words “Limited Edition” written on the top. This caused me to take a second look, and I saw that under the 3 Musketeers logo, the word “Marshmallow” was written. O ho, something new here? Needless to say I brought a bag home with me.
Marshmallow has always been a “big” candy theme for Easter. Marshmallow eggs, rabbits and of course the infamous Peeps began with Easter. So it doesn’t surprised me terribly that 3 Musketeers would jump on the bandwagon.
The candy pieces inside come in little squares like the normal minis. The look the same, the smell is very sweet, buttery and a hint of chocolate. Each are individually wrapped so they’re easy to bring a few to work or nibble some with coffee.
Biting one in half, you see a pristine white interior of fluffy nougat. Notice, the interior isn’t marshmallow, but marshmallow flavored nougat. The texture is light, airy and very rich feeling in the mouth. I get a very strong and sweet vanilla flavor, which gives it that “marshmallow” quality. In fact, the vanilla brings out the chocolate flavors more, so it’s a very flavorful combination. This is still very sweet like all 3 Musketeers, so be sure to have a drink handy.
Overall, this candy is really just a 3 Musketeers with a vanilla nougat interior. Get some normal 3 musketeer minis and the some of those fall released strawberry ones together and you have a Neapolitan 3 Musketeers much like the original candy bar! Cool!
