Treat of the Week: Minis Mix
Part I: 3 Musketeers

I made a quick pitstop at Super Walmart to do a little restocking of the freezer. What should my wandering eyes spy but this tiny blue box with all the other ice cream treats! I was just thinking about how I wanted to buy a box of Snickers Ice Cream bars earlier today, but this must be better since you get 4 flavors! Oh, I knew this box was opening the second I got in the car.

Oh, so tempting, which one to choose? So much potential! How could it go wrong??? I've had snickers and milky way before, think I'll go with 3 Musketeers.

Well, good news and bad news. The good news is, the 3 musketeers was somewhat tasty, though I think a piece of gum I had a half hour earlier was dulling the flavor a bit. The bad news is: these little bad boys clock in at under 2 inches!! And I don't mean that figuratively, I mean I broke out the ruler and they are all 1 and 15/16" of an inch long. One angry bite and it's all gone. I tried to space it into 4 bites but it was definitely a struggle. I easily could have polished off a "serving" which is one of each bar, but I knew I would be eating dinner in about 15 minutes. The value is decent though, just over $3 for the box.
