We love candy, and as most candy lovers would attest, M&M’s Chocolate Candies are tried and true. Few sweets replicate the delicious taste of a thin candy shell encasing rich milk chocolate or chocolate covered peanut. It is one of those elusive products that exemplify the maxim, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
We admit that we are skeptical when a new flavor or limited edition cross our path. More often than not, the new flavors are a “flash in the pan” novelty that won’t withstand the test of time. This skepticism occurred when we received three new M&M flavors that are part of their FLAVOR VOTE 2019 SWEEPSTAKES.
Each flavor offers an international flair and pays tribute to a country, its culinary tradition and associated colors! For England, it is English Toffee Peanut, for Mexico, it is Jalapeno Peanut, and for Thailand, it is Thai Coconut Peanut. We couldn’t think of anything more ideal for a contest in which a lucky winner wins an all-expense paid jaunt around the globe.
Be forewarned that these are not your average candies.
The flavor combinations are intense and while our preference was for Thai Coconut Peanut – yes, it tastes like Thai Food – others preferred the subtly of English Toffee Peanut which tasted a bit like a Heath Bar on steroids. The Mexican Jalapeno Peanut is the most intense of the three, and it too is a flavor combination not to be missed. Kudos to whoever thought up these unique combinations!
Although we are not sure what your chances are of winning the Sweepstakes, we are sure that these new flavors are worth the effort to find. They are a limited edition and may not be around forever, but their delicious taste will surely leave a lasting memory.
