Every year around Halloween you can usually plan on M&M's coming out with a limited edition flavor you haven't seen before. Remember Candy Corn M&M's? Well this year is no different! I just happened to run into New England wrestling legend Brian Fury while in Walmart one night, (he's a big fan of the blog), and he informed me that Candy Apple M&M's were indeed real and not only that, but there was a display of them in the front of the store. Luckily he let me know because I never in a million years would have seen them.
Should you be adding a dish of these to your next fall party? Are Candy Apple M&M's worth your hard earned cash? Let's find out...
|Green M&M...still as sexy as always.|
Once I tore the bag open and was met with two different shades of red M&M candies. I took in the aroma...nothing special. Just smelled like M&Ms... So I popped a few of them in my mouth and started chewing them up...They tasted like M&M's. That's it.
So I start thinking, okay, I must be crazy, these HAVE to have some apple flavor to them. So I popped another few in my mouth. This time, I found a faint apple taste. So faint that it was like the ghost of an apple might have been haunting my kitchen.
|Nope, sorry guys. It was just a joke.|
So I went out and found a couple of the other guys and had them try them. Same thing. One of them said if he tried really hard he could taste a little apple. But he said it was like someone walked through the room with a bushel of fresh apples and he caught a quick whiff of them before they were gone. That's a pretty good description, if you ask me.
In the end I'm going to have to chalk this latest flavor up as a failure. The apple taste is so faint that it's almost non-existent. If I want something that tastes like a plain chocolate M&M, I'll just get a bag of those, or a bag of the plain MEGA M&M's. But this one bag will be the only ones I ever purchase of Candy Apple M&M's. After this review, there's no way I'm getting a date with that Green M&M. Ah well. She should respect my honesty to the readers, right?
I give Candy Apple M&M's a D-. They would be an F, but if you consider them just bigger plain M&M's, they are still tasty.
