The great thing about this treat, the thing that made me jump up and squeal with joy, is when I saw the name "3". I'm fairly easily impressed by silly little things and the name of this bar made me gasp in aw. You see, I've had a bit of a private search going on for a while, I've been looking for treats that have really short names. Sure it's a stupid hobby, but when you review candy for a living your hobbies tend to be kind of lame.

The other cool thing about this treat is that it was a gift to me from a traveling friend. Someone completely oblivious to my silly search found me a little something that made me so happy. I guess I should talk about the bar a little for this review as well.

It was OK; I'm not really sure what it was though. At first it had little to no flavour, but the texture of Turkish delight covered in chocolate. Then the flavour got a little fruity, not bad. Then it got kind of gross and turned into a liquorice aftertaste, yuck. I like that I was completely surprised by what I had just eaten. I was expecting something really simple and basic, but what I got was a bit of a surprise even though I may not have liked the flavour that much (mainly because of the liquorice).

So what did I learn today? Well I learned that cultures all over the world have great treats to offer. I learned that there are sweets with one-character names. I also learned that when I eat something, and I can't read the package, it would be a good idea to keep a glass of water nearby.
