We love candy. It’s no secret. We love searching for the best candy that the world has to offer and sometimes it literally does come from the other side of the planet, in biscuit form. Although biscuits may not technically be candy, the delicious ones that are covered in chocolate definitely have a place in the Cybercandy kingdom. This week, I’d like to introduce you to a gorgeous chocolate covered biscuit-y dream from the very heart of Australia…
Arnott’s Tim Tam
As you may or may not know, the Australian people are a modest bunch, even though they have much to boast about – the constant sunshine, the beautiful scenery and the cool accent. However, there is a biscuit, a delicious chocolate malted biscuit sandwich with a creamy chocolate centre – the most famous biscuit that our friends down under have to offer.
There are few things I love as much as chocolate. In fact, there are few things I love more than candy in general, but chocolate is most definitely my main weakness. It’s like Duff beer and donuts to Homer Simpson…. Mmm Duff….
I also love movies. What in the world is better than curling up for a good movie with a lovely selection of (Cyber)candy and a couple of delicious sodas? Not a lot amigo’s, not a lot at all… So, when we come across a chocolate bar from across the pond that’s inspired by one of the great classic stories of all time, how on earth can we possibly resist it? No no no, we really can’t!
The 3 Musketeers is the reinvention of a chocolate bar that’s been around in the US since 1932. Back then it was in fact three separate chocolate, vanilla and strawberry flavoured pieces. I wonder which one was Aramis…hmm, something to ponder.
Over the years as the chocolate piece of the trio became the most popular, it developed into a delicious single bar with a fluffy, whippy, creamy centre that reminds us of a Milkyway. To see if this Musketeer bar of chocolate heaven could inspire the good people of London to whip out their fencing swords, we donned our blue tunics, curled the ends of our moustaches and sent a couple of these delicious milkyway-like treats to our good friend Marcus at Choc It Out!
If you’re not familiar with Choc It Out! then wander on over to their YouTube channel which is chocked full of delicious reviews, including many sweet candy greats, in an attempt to unite the world through chocolate. They get the Cybercandy vote!
Marcus took the 3 Musketeers bar onto the streets at the end of March (before the rain came sloshing down), to get the general view on this bar of deliciousness. Before we show the verdict, can you name all three Musketeers? Go on, have a try… and no Google cheating!
Fancy a more exotic flavour of Musketeer? You’re in luck, it’s also available in coconut. Now that’s a swashbuckling bar of yumtastic!
