The Milky Way candy bar, one of the classic American chocolate bars (and No. 9 on our list of America’s favorite candy bars), is about to get a mallow makeover.Mars Chocolate has announced the newest incarnation of one of their best-selling chocolates: the Milky Way Marshmallow with Caramel bar, which promises to deliver a “magnificent combination of fluffy marshmallow nougat covered with a layer of smooth caramel, enrobed in creamy milk chocolate” to snack aisles everywhere.
Sadly, this new iteration of the classic Milky Way bar is very limited-edition, and will appear on convenience and grocery store shelves only in July and August this year. The 1.72-ounce bar carries a suggested price of $1.09 to $1.39.
This isn’t the only limited-edition Milky Way variety that Mars has introduced. In 2011, the Milky Way Simply Caramel bar was released (it contained no nougat), and in 2012, Milky Way Caramel Apple Minis were available during the Halloween season.
