Three Musketeer Candy Bar

I tried to explain to my Grandson the original thinking behind the Three Muskateer when I was his age. They could be easily boken into three even pieces and actually cost 5 cents. Does anyone else remember this or am I just having a Senior Moment???

Loved them then and now! Remember the candy cigarettes? Talk about priming the future generations.

Nope, no senior moment (either that or we are sharing one). Pity I can't eat them anymore.

I guess that officially makes me a senior. I do in fact remember when all the candy bars were only 5 cents.

Originally, it had three pieces in one package, flavored chocolate, strawberry and vanilla, hence the name. Rising costs and wartime restrictions on sugar saw the phasing out of the vanilla and strawberry pieces to leave only the more popular chocolate.

Way before my time...

I don't remember them being three peices or three flavors. I do remember something that broke off but can't think of the name of it. But it doesn't matter because I absolutely love 3 Musketeers. We used to go to the little store and buy a whole bag of candies for 25 cents. I usually got Necco Wafers, candy cigerettes, Mallow Cup, wax bottles with juice or something in them and the stix of sugar candy.

What about the little wax bottle shapes with flavored juice or the real taffy they could pull of the (?puller) man that was good. Or real malted balls or strawberry malts at the original A&Ws.

You beat me to the wax juice bottle and I had forgotten about the candy straw things- 2 sizes medium and huge! About 3 feet long.

The Three Musketeers were one heckuva lot larger back then, easily enough for three people, than even the modern king size.

How about the licorice cowboy hats, I think they were two for a penny.

The other thing that broke easily to share was Tootsie rolls.
And the other candy cigarettes i remember were gum cigars colored green, blue, yellow or pink. Maybe there was a paper wrapped gum stick that looked like a cigarette... but it didn't blow 'smoke' (powdered sugar?) like the other candy one did.

I miss PowerHouse Bars and Pom Poms.

At least Snickers have survived.
