If you're not ready for Christmas yet, then you need a shot in the eye because this holiday is rapidly approaching! I only finished my Christmas shopping today and, of course, I'm second guessing everything I purchased. Will this person like that? Will that person like this? At the end of the day, It's the thought that truly counts, but so does the gift receipt and that's why I keep everything handed back to me. It gives me piece of mind and, now that I'm done, it's on to wrapping and celebrating. Unlike some of you lucky bums, I'm only off from work for the next two days, but I'm going to take it, savor it, and make the most of my 48 hours. Need a delicious way to do the same? Go find these!
I did my research and, from what I gathered, these aren't new for 2013. Apparently these were available last year and were pretty popular. But see, in 2012, I didn't pay any mind to holiday products because I wasn't focusing on The Holidaze. I barely had enough money to buy presents for my loved ones, let alone anything extra to waste on food and candy. Thankfully, times have changed and I've been able to enjoy the best of both worlds. Believe it or not, being able to indulge in a bag on Hot Cocoa 3 Musketeers and still go crazy on gifts for my loved ones is a blessing. Not to mention how much my tongue thanks me.
Under normal circumstances, I generally avoid 3 Musketeers Candy. I've always gone for the Snickers and Milky Way first and, if I had no other choice, the chocolatey trio would be my last resort for a sugar fix. But when you read that they've changed their flavor for the season and release a Hot Cocoa with Marshmallow variety, you give the brand it's due and pick a bag up. Believe me, it wasn't easy to find! I looked at Target, Wal-Mart, Stop&Shop, and Shop Rite before finally stumbling across a bag at CVS. Who woulda thunk? It was a nice surprise, especially because I had given up my search, and now they won't go down the same drain as Gingerbread Oreo cookies. They've alluded me once again.
Hot Cocoa 3 Musketeers minis don't look very different, but the flavor certainly is a welcomed change. Yeah, for the most part, this is still a 3 Musketeers bar, but there's a hint of Hot Chocolate and it's enough to make this candy special. It's obviously small, so if you chomp down and devour it with one or two bites, you're definitely going to bypass and miss the subtle flavor. This is something you need to eat slowly and move around in your mouth. I'm walking a fine line between sounding overly fat or sexual, but you need to suck it in order to taste it. Sorry, there's no other way of saying it. Put it in your mouth, suck it, swallow, and repeat. Where your mind takes you from here is on you. I take no responsibility ;)
If we can get our mind out of the gutter for a second, this is seriously one of my favorite Christmas candies. It's new to me, and maybe it is to you, but it's been around for a bit and I think that's a testament to it's popularity. If you can find them, give them a shot. I don't think you can go wrong with this one.
