One of Life's Great Mysteries

I just ate a fun sized Milky Way. Not only did it come in a blue wrapper instead of the brown wrapper I am used to, it also did not have caramel in it. What? Milky Ways have caramel in them!

When you bite in to a Milky Way, do you expect caramel or not? I must know. Please leave me a comment!

Sounds like a mislabeled Three Musketeers (possibly the worst candy bar ever).

I'm in agreement with djlicious (how often does one have the opportunity to say that she agrees with someone who's last name is "licious"?!)
ps: do we need to take up a collection to int'l fedex you a pack of king-sized Snickers?

sounds like a normal Milky Way to me - blue wrapper and a fluffy nougat filling coated in chocolate - "for a light treat you can enjoy between meals, without ruining your appetite".

apparently, there is a worldwide conspiracy, and everywhere BUT the USA eats these blue wrappered caramel-less Milky Ways, that yes, djLicious, taste like three musketeers.

I will have to eat Mars bars when I want something that is Milky-Way esque. Mars bars here do not have almonds.

Michelle, I think I have had picnic before? it's cadbury, with peanuts and raisins?

Milky Ways are Mars Bars without the caramel.

Your Mars Bars have almonds in? What kind of craziness is this?

Polly, sorry about that!

Reuss, yes, our Mars bars have almonds in them. (when you can find them... they are rare.) They also come in a sort of cream colored wrapper, not the black wrapper I see here.

It's totally crazy. Why do they change the candy worldwide? We can't all eat the same candy?

Strange that the same label would have a different candy bar in different places. Especially when a Milky Way without caramel is already called a Three Musketeers (and a Milky Way with peanuts is called Snickers--not much creativity in the candy combos)

Actually I think the US version of a Mars Bar is long gone. That was my favorite candy bar. When I looked into it it appears that the company that owns Snickers made the Mars Bar. To lessen confusion with what the rest of the world considers a Mars Bar, they changed the named to Snickers Almond. Its not the same. I remember more Almonds in them. However I don't see the Snickers Almond very much and I would make due with that if I could find them.

The whole ad line on Milky Way here in the UK was that it was the chocolate bar you could eat between meals that wouldn't fill you up (sounds like them urging you to buy more) And I don't like the way that homogenisation of chocolate bars worldwide gave us the Snickers bar. It's not a Snickers, it's a Marathon! And don't get me started on the whole Opal Fruits/Starburst thing...

Milky Ways in Australia are exactly what you describe eating. My American husband and I spend much of our time discussing the intricacies of the different labelling/ingredients of chocolate bars in our respective countries of birth. Our Mars Bars are what your milky ways are. Our Snickers are the same. We don't have 3 muskateers because we have milky ways instead. We don't have MILK DUDS and will be forever poorer a country for it.
