Will dance for candy. [Apr. 7th, 2008|11:42 am]

When it was first introduced in 1932, the 3 Musketeers bar was packaged to include three separate pieces of candy flavored vanilla, chocolate and strawberry -- thus the name THREE Musketeers. Causing some confusion to tourists worldwide, the 3 Musketeers bar is called a Milky Way in European countries, and the U.S. version of the Milky Way is called a Mars Bar.

And The Bird And Bee "Polite Dance" video. It's awesomely directed.

I think I'm confused. So the 3 musketeers is called a Milky Way in Europe and the Milky Way is called a Mars Bar...what is a Mars Bar called?

I have no idea. LOL.

This particular little gem from the fact store I shoplifted it from also made my mind whirl trying to figure it out.

Ooh, good to know. *nod* You've had the American equivalant of both to compare? I got it from one of those litle factoid sites.

Right? And oh it's just been a weekend made of Hell. lol. I had to go to the Doctor today and I was worried about if he was going to give me the medicine I need to do physical therapy for my back. He gave me tylenol 3 which does like nothing. I'm bummed. He gave me something called naproxen I haven't tried before so we'll see if that works.

Oh, and an antidepressant. LOL. Oh happy day!

Fascinating, right? Assuming my litle factoid is correct.

That explains so much. I really like 3 Musketeers here, and when I go to Europe I've always gotten Milky Way bars.

Really, I think America needs to get Galaxy chocolate bars. If we have them, I've never seen them sold anywhere.

Oooh, I've never heard of galaxy chocolate bars. What are they like?

I remember having my first toblerone in Sweden and thinking that the world was a magnificent place. LOL

mmm... chocolate...

Ya know, calling a Musketeers bar a Milky Way makes a lot more sense. I'm with you though... I would want to try the three different flavors of old.

Isn't marketing fascinating? I think it's so neat to see how things differ from country to country. Maybe I'm a dork but I think that kinda thing is cool. lol

3 musketeers are basically my favourite candy bar. Also, i love the story and almost named my fish after the main three museteers (effe d'artagnan, even if the book -is- about him).

I highly recommend "Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!" and "Tom Goes To The Mayor".... quirky, confusing, odd and totally awkwardly hilarious.

Two presents for you!

I'll check them out. :)

That news article is just crazy. I worry about his school aged children. Because that is not healthy behaviour.. I hope the state gives them some therapy and ascertains if theyve been abused or not.

And regarding the bird porn... lol.. wth!?

But we have Milky Way bars and Mars Bars and they're certainly not the same thing. No Muscateer bars for us though. Sadly.

Right, I think they're labelled diferently and cooked differently internationally. For instance American Fanta is disgusting. Tastes nothing like it's yummy European version.
