Three Cheers for 3 Musketeers

What was your favorite candy bar when you were a kid? It seems like an appropriate question given that Halloween is on Monday, doesn’t it? And it’s definitely appropriate because I had the chance this week to attend Bianca’s 3 Musketeers party to try the new and improved version of one of my childhood favorites. The party, held at the W Hotel Boston, was full of chocolate, wine, and friends, a wonderful way to spend an evening.

Before heading up to the party, I wandered around the lounge at the W Hotel. Admittedly, I was lost and didn’t pay attention to where the party actually was, but I do love this lounge. It’s a nice mix of swanky and comfy.

When I headed upstairs for the party, I encountered a table piled high with the new 3 Musketeers bars. I checked in, chatted with Bianca, and scoped out the scene while digging in to a fluffy, chocolate-y 3 Musketeers bar.

There were passed appetizers, but the highlight of the event space (other than the open bar) was a table filled with cakes made with 3 Musketeers bars. Doesn’t this look divine?

I opted not to have a piece, instead enjoying the 3 Musketeers bar in its purest form along with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc while catching up with some Boston bloggers.

I had never attended a party to celebrate a candy bar before, but it was a fun and sweet occasion. I don’t know if I could tell a difference between the old and new 3 Musketeers; I might have to do a side-by-side taste test to figure it out. However, I loved that the candy bar  still maintains that rich chocolate shell filled with a fluffy, light chocolate center. I love candy bars frozen, and 3 Musketeers was one that I definitely used to order from my old ice cream man, Mr. Buddy.

    My favorite candy bar growing up was definitely Snickers! A party in honor of a candy bar sounds like my kind of party :)

    3 Musketeers has always been one of my favorite candies and, while I prefer dark chocolate these days, I still love eating a mini 3M especially this time of year. Wish I could have ditched studying for this event!

    3 Musketeers is one of my favorite candy bars – along with caramel twix and kit kats!

    I haven’t seen the new bars – what is different about them?

    So great to see you that night! My favorite candy growing up (and probably still is): Kit Kat. I like to put them in the freezer so they are extra cold and crispy.

    Yum, I love 3 Musketeers bars! My favorites are Snickers and Almond Joys. I love any candy that has nuts in it. :-)

    I love that fluffy texture of a 3 Musketeers… I wonder if that was evident in the cake too… because that cake looks awesome!

    I love Three Muskateers. It’s the only candy bar I like. I like how simple it is. Snickers and Milky Way have to much going on for me. Sounds like a fun party!
