While out running errands today, hubby-Eric and I ran across some new flavors of M&Ms that we hadn't spotted here before. So here's my thoughts on them...
The first we ran across was M&Ms Limited Edition Coconut Chocolate Candies. These are exactly what the package says. They are coconut M&Ms. And they are pretty darn good... if you like coconut. I can't really compare it to anything else... it's just a coconut M&M. Exactly what you'd expect. They are slightly larger than regular milk chocolate M&Ms, but the same regular shape. Some of the candies are stamped with an M holding an umbrella, others have an M in the center of a flower. The coconut candies are only in white, dark brown, and green.
Then we found some M&Ms Pretzel Chocolate Candies. Again, these are pretty much what you'd expect. They have a chunk of pretzel in them like the peanut M&Ms have a peanut in the middle. I didn't think I'd like them, but they are actually pretty good. I'm not much of a pretzel fan, but this isn't overwhelming and the chocolate makes the taste work. These are round and about the size of the peanut M&Ms.
I wouldn't go out of my way to pick these up, but seeing them while we were already out and about made them worth checking out.
And, just because I haven't posted it in a long time:
The Continuing M&Ms Challenge
I'm still collecting data for this, and will continue to collect for the foreseeable future, so if you feel like participating, please just:
1) Get yourself a bag of Milk Chocolate M&Ms.
2) Note the size of the bag (in oz or g or both)
3) Open bag. Do not eat any (yet).
4) Count the number of Green M&Ms. Do not eat any (yet).
5) Count the TOTAL number of M&Ms (including green). Ok, you can eat them now.
6) Post the size of the bag, the number of green M&Ms and the total number of M&Ms.
Note: Counts for other types of M&Ms are welcome, but please indicate what the type is when you post the information. Silliness is fine, but please make sure the data is true. A good replacement for the end of step 5 is to have an M&M tournament to determine the best M&Ms for breeding future generations.
Put your counts in the comments.
