As we approach the holidays many snack companies decide to break out some new flavors to dazzle all those holiday shoppers into dropping their hard earned cash on treats. It's definitely a smart move because it works on the Fatguyfoodblog crew every damn time. Which makes sense, because reviewing new snacks is our business...and business is good.
First up is the Milk Chocolate Orange M&M's!
|Stuff that stocking with oranges! The kids love em!|
They are pretty good, if you like that flavor. If you're not a fan of chocolate and orange mixed together, stay far away from these. I found that they weren't an M&M I could eat a ton of. I would tend to eat a few here and there spread out over a long period of time. Not bad though.
|That Red M&M, he's got attitude.|
After this bag sat on my desk for a bit and I ended up going back to it a few times, I have to say, these grew on me. Big time. Much like the Candy Corn M&M's we reviewed a while back, I found myself liking these in the end. Sometimes all it takes is spending some time mindlessly eating M&M's for a new flavor to really sink it's claws into you. After a while the white chocolate takes a stronger hold and the thoughts of toothpaste fade away in your mind and you're left with a white chocolate peppermint treat that's perfect for your holiday candy dish.
In the end I'm a bigger fan of the White Chocolate Peppermint M&M's than I am the Orange, but hey, that's personal preference, snackers. You do what you like. But if you ask me, I say get them both and put your taste buds to the test!
Also, hey M&M's while you're creating 1034 new flavors...why not coffee???
RATING: Orange M&M's-B
White Chocolate Peppermint M&M's-B+
