Is it candy, or toothpaste?

Spotted in a Seattle 7-Eleven today: Three Musketeers MINT. It's two bars in one wrapper, as far as I could tell, and with dark chocolate instead of milk.

I don't think I'll be trying this one. York Peppermint Patties and Junior Mints are fine as far as they go, but I haven't been sitting around wishing for more mint in my chocolate.

If you're dying for it, though, they let you enter your ZIP code and then give you a list of stores near you where it's supposedly available. A very cool feature -- all weird candy and new products need this on their corporate Web sites.
This reminds me that I never did find the 100 Grand with Coconut, which actually sounded like something I would like.

Where did you see this exactly? I live in West Seattle and think it sounds tasty, but the locator tells me that there are no stores carrying it within 30 miles of me.

Try my zip code, 98117 (Ballard). They say it's everywhere, but I saw it at the 7-Eleven on Leary (I think), connected to the Jack in the Box.

I have long been a 100 Grand fan - I was the only one who nominated and voted for it as Favorite Candy Bar in 3rd grade - and I like coconut. But the 100 Grand Coconut just tasted like suntan lotion. Good idea, poor execution.

I bought three when I saw them at my local Publix. It has the texture/consistency of Three Musketeers but the exact flavor of a York Peppermint Patty. Except not refreshing. I could only eat half of half, but I'd definitely recommend it to people who like mint chocolate.
