ChocolateBet: July 30, 2007

Chocolate of the Day:

1 bar
3 Musketeers bar
Weight: 2.13 oz. (60.4 grams) in 1 bar
Calories: 260 calories
Cost: $0.75
Purchased from: a vending machine at work

This iconic, silver-clad 3 Musketeers chocolate candy bar from Mars (the company that is), was a popular American classic when I was young -- found in Halloween treat bags and lunch bags far and wide.

The "45% less fat" claim printed on the wrapper refers to the fact that this 3 Musketeers bar is lower in fat than many other candy bars. The less dense bar, with "Whipped Up, Fluffy Chocolate 'on' Chocolate Taste," had 46 grams of carbohydrates/sugars, but only 8 grams of fat. Although I could do without the hydrogenated palm kernel oil (and lactose), there is apparently no (zero) trans fats in this bar.
