3 Musketeers Just Released a New Flavor, and It’s INCREDIBLE

Would you try this fun new flavor?

Who’s ready to have some fun? 3 Musketeers is, and they have the flavor to prove it! The iconic candy brand has just announced their first new flavor after six years—Birthday Cake! That’s right, all of your Funfetti dreams are about to come true.

“The birthday cake flavor is a growing trend and one that we knew would be a perfect center to the iconic 3 Musketeers bar,” said 3 Musketeers brand manager Rosemary Nocito in a press release. “Our mission is to spread small moments of joy with our fans and this latest flavor brings that celebratory feeling to the everyday.”

Lucky for me, I was one of the few to taste test this product before it hits the shelves. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by some of these wacky flavors that Mars has recently released (such as the three new Snickers flavors and the Crunchy M&M’s flavors). So I was eager to give their latest creation a try.

My immediate thoughts before tasting

Now I admit, I’m usually skeptical of “birthday cake” flavored products. When all of my peers in middle school were ordering Cake Batter at Cold Stone, I was keeping it simple with classic strawberry. I am not a huge fan of super sugary desserts, and birthday cake flavored products always tend to be a bit too much for my palate.

However, when I’m not courting the classic Reese’s peanut butter cup, I’m having a side love affair with 3 Musketeers. It has always been my favorite candy to get in my Halloween pumpkin. I would always trade my KitKats and Skittles so I could snag the 3 Musketeers off my brother’s hands after a night of trick-or-treating. So when I was asked to try the new 3 Musketeer’s Birthday Cake flavor, how in the world could I say no?

The flavor is actually delightful

I’m here to tell you that this candy bar is delightful. The Birthday Cake flavor isn’t overpowering like I find some birthday cake flavored items to be. Cutting into the bar you can immediately tell the difference between a normal 3 Musketeers. It has a vanilla-flavored nougat and colorful sprinkles to give it that Funfetti feel. The center of the bar still had that perfect light, marshmallow consistency, which is the reason I originally fell in love with this bar.

The flavor isn’t overpowering, and yet there’s no denying that this bar doesn’t taste like a typical Funfetti birthday cake. Even if you were to close your eyes and have a bite of this bar, you would be able to grasp the flavor right away. But I enjoyed the simplicity of this new bar, and would definitely pick it up when it’s on shelves.

3 Musketeers Birthday Cake will be available in January 2019

Sadly, it’s true. You’ll have to wait until January 2019 to experience the magic of the 3 Musketeers Birthday Cake yourself. However, the Birthday Cake flavor comes in two different packages that make sharing with a buddy a lot easier. The Share Size bar has two smaller size bars (2.14 oz.) and the Miniatures Stand Up Pouch (8.4 oz.) has approximately 28 pieces. Sounds like the perfect birthday present to share!

Can’t wait for January to try this candy? These Funfetti recipes will hold you over!

In addition to celebrating birthdays, 3 Musketeers will continue to #ThrowShine

If the new Birthday Cake flavor isn’t enough to entice you to buy the bar, maybe posting with one on social media will. 3 Musketeers is encouraging others to post on their campaign hashtag #ThrowShine. It’s an on-going campaign that encourages teens across the country to “spend moments of positivity and kindness among their peers—giving props instead of throwing shade.” So not only can you buy a delicious bar, but the Share Size lets you share it with a buddy and #ThrowShine in their direction. How sweet!
