3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp partners with E! correspondent
HACKETTSTOWN, N.J. The newest 3 Musketeers candy has teamed up with E! News host Giuliana Rancic to celebrate its launch.
Each bar of the newest 3 Musketeers, which officially launched last month, contains a truffle sitting on a crisp layer of meringue enrobed in velvety chocolate. In line with the partnership, 3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp bar is offering fans the opportunity to meet Rancic in Los Angeles for a special lunch. Between now and April 23, consumers ages 18 years and older can visit Facebook.com/3musketeers, click on the contest tab and detail in 25 words or less, “What would you rather share than a 3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp bar?” One grand-prize winner with the most creative and entertaining submission will be selected.
“I am excited about my partnership with 3 Musketeers and the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon with a fan,” Rancic said. “Since the 3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp is rich enough to share, but you really won’t want to, I would rather share my experiences as an entertainment reporter than my Truffle Crisp, and am looking forward to hearing what others would rather share.”
