TRUTH !!
Three Musketeers got its name, not from the Alexander Dumas book, but from
the three different flavors it came in when it was first released in 1932.
By 1945 there were restrictions on sugar due to World War II, and it became
harder to find ingredients for the vanilla and strawberry versions. The bar,
instead of being three small pieces, was increased in size and turned into
all chocolate coating, while retaining the nougat filling.
