MUNDANE MYSTERIES: How 3 Musketeers Bars for their name

Maybe you had one over Halloween a few months back and wondered the same thing. Why did they call this a 3 Musketeers bar?

The reason is that they original version of the candy when it was released in the 1930s had 3 flavors as the inside nougat of the chocolate bar. Vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. Then during World War II in an effort to cut back and save money because of the rations they made it just one flavor… chocolate. It has stayed that way ever since, but they kept the branding of the name.
