How is a 3 MUSKETEERS® Bar made?
The 3 MUSKETEERS® Bar is made of chocolate-flavored nougat covered with milk chocolate. The nougat center is first formed into very large slabs, which are cut to size, and after the centers are formed they are coated with thick, rich milk chocolate, through a process called "enrobing." The actual enrobing process begins when the centers pass through a continuous curtain of liquid chocolate, which coats the top and sides of the bar. At the same time, a rotating chocolate covered wheel beneath the mesh belt coats the base of the bar. To ensure an attractive, glossy, smooth coating, the chocolate must be just the right temperature. The fully enrobed bar is then cooled and prepared for wrapping. The complete bars are inspected and packed in various ways. The 3 MUSKETEERS® Bars are made in Chicago, Illinois, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania and Newmarket, Canada.
What is nougat?
Nougat is made by whipping egg whites until they are light and frothy. Sugar syrup is then added, stabilizing the foam and creating "frappe." A number of other flavoring ingredients are then added to the frappe; each ingredient creates nougat with a different taste. These nougats are then ready for use in the manufacture of specific brands as the filling in the bars, which is included in the delicious 3 MUSKETEERS® Bar.
What is the history of the 3 MUSKETEERS® Brand Characters?
There were originally four (4) Musketeers, however, M&M/MARS only uses three Musketeers. Aramis, Porthos and Athos were the original Musketeers, but D'Artagnan proved himself worthy and was embraced as the 4th Musketeer. M&M/MARS decided that because of D'Artagnan's courage and worthiness, he would make a fine 3 MUSKETEERS® Brand character, and therefore, we do not use Aramis. The personalities of the 3 MUSKETEERS® Brand characters are as follows:
Porthos - a man of the world. He's smooth and sophisticated and exudes self-confidence and personal style. He's a man of chivalry and honor. He's James Bond with a saber.
Athos - brilliant and brave but also clumsy like a nutty professor. He constantly finds himself in awkward situations because he doesn't watch where he's going. He's a scatterbrained hero with a heart of gold.
D'Artagnan - the leader of the trio. He's young and eager, always the first to charge into the fray. He's courageous, gallant and always wins the day.
