REVIEW: Hazelnut Spread M&M’s

What are Hazelnut Spread M&M’s? M&M’s debuts its newest flavor which features a hazelnut spread center covered in milk chocolate all encased in a colorful candy shell. And yes it’s a riff on Nutella which is synonymous with hazelnut spread in most people’s minds. Look at the container on the package that Blue is holding! A clear jar. Verrrrrry interesting. Basically, these are bootleg Nutella M&M’s. How are they? These were announced way back in September which means a long time to get exc...

REVIEW: White Chocolate Marshmallow M&M’s

What are White Chocolate Marshmallow M&M’s? Because a bag of novelty-flavored M&M’s is easily stuffed into a bright plastic egg basket, Mars is dropping another installment of its special edition Easter flavors! This time, it’s white chocolate with marshmallow. How are they? You know how when you see cooking show contestants using the same batter/dough/base for multiple items, they are mostly likely not going to win? That’s what these M&M’s taste like. They’re essentially the same as the ba...

REVIEW: Internationally Inspired Peanut M&M’s (Flavor Vote 2019)

The flavor vote is back! Not the O.G. one for Lay’s Potato Chips but for M&M’s, and it’s the third go round. Peanut M&M’s were a part of the first one where Chili Nut reigned supreme and last year for the Crunchy rendition where Mint came out on top. This year, the vote has an international theme with the flavors associated with specific countries around the world. They are Mexican Jalapeno, English Toffee, and Thai Coconut. Mexican Jalapeno Let’s first go south of the border for Mexican J...

REVIEW: M&M’s Milk Chocolate Bars (2018)

Bringing stiff competition to Hershey’s new Milk Chocolate & Reese’s Pieces mashup, Mars has recently rolled out a full line of M&M’s inspired chocolate bars. Released as a set of five, all variations include miniature M&M’s embedded in a solid brick of milk chocolate and feature additional add-ins to pay homage to different varieties of the popular candy. Milk Chocolate Case in point that simplicity isn’t necessarily a bad thing, this bar is the most basic of the bunch, and consists of a n...

What are Hot Cocoa M&M’s? Unlike the Hot Chocolate flavor from a few years ago made with dark chocolate, Hot Cocoa M&M’s are standard milk chocolate with a white chocolate marshmallow center. How are they? Have you ever had a regular M&M? How ’bout a White Chocolate M&M? Well, imagine tossing one of each in your mouth at the same time. There ya go. That’s a Hot Cocoa M&M. Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily. These are still decent, but they’re also very reminiscent of flavors you’ve proba...

Horror of Horrors: Candy Brands Get Creative With Halloween Ads

It’s peak season for candy marketing ghouls, and every brand that could conceivably fit into a Halloween trick-or-treat bag has been jockeying for position with new products and promotions. A sampler: Mars’ M&M’s brand is in the midst of a big Halloween promotional push featuring its color characters, which includes an ad in which Yellow starts to take on other-worldly qualities—and the camera shows that a large bite has been taken out of the back of its head. Yet if you’re looking for so...

QUICK REVIEW: White Chocolate Peanut M&M’s

What are White Chocolate Peanut M&M’s? Mars is continuing its recent rollout of Peanut M&M varieties with an old classic –- White Chocolate. As far as I’m concerned, they can go years without even thinking of doing anything but new peanut flavors, because Peanut M&M’s are flat out better than regular M&M’s. Go ahead, admit it. How are they? The white chocolate is nice, but it’s very mild. It’s not as pronounced a flavor as regular chocolate, so it gets masked by the peanut and shell. I alm...

QUICK REVIEW: Peanut M&M’s Sweet & Salty Snack Mix

What is it? A mix of two types of M&M’s — peanut and peanut butter — with peanuts and pretzel balls. There’s also a milk chocolate version available with milk chocolate and Crispy M&M’s mixed with almonds and pretzel balls. How is it? Solid, but unspectacular. Even though the pretzel balls are pictured sparingly on the outside of the bag, they seem to be the most populous of the residents inside the bag. The peanuts are a touch disappointing in that they are neither sweet nor salty. It mi...

REVIEW: Neapolitan M&M’s

When I read that M&M’s were making a Neapolitan variety, my first thought was “Is that still a thing?” I haven’t had Neapolitan ice cream since I was a kid in the 80s. My mother would bring home tubs of the cheapest store-brand tri-colored treat and daintily shave off layers from all flavors equally. Then I would excavate every molecule of strawberry ice cream until it looked like David Copperfield made it disappear with jazz hands and a hypnotic stare. Never mind that chocolate was actually m...

After a three year hiatus, M&Ms are back in the Super Bowl! The Mars-Wrigley brand recently announced a new M&M's Super Bowl commercial.

'Faint 2: A Very Yellow Sequel' Follows Up on M&M's Iconic 'Faint' Holiday Ad From 1996

For over 20 years we’ve watched Santa and Red faint on Christmas Eve via M&M's “Faint” TV ad that’s become a holiday classic. Now, we get to find out how Yellow saved Christmas that fateful night and showed everyone the true meaning of the holidays in the candy maker's 2017 TV spot called,'Faint 2: A Very Yellow Sequel.' The original 15-second spot, which has been aired each holiday season since it debuted in 1996, shows both Santa Claus and M&M’s spokescandy character Red fainting after Red and...

REVIEW: White Pumpkin Pie M&M’s

These White Pumpkin Pie M&M’s are simply white chocolate with a pumpkin pie flavor. But it got me thinking that a pumpkin pie engulfed in hardened white chocolate would actually be an epic holiday dessert. If you make this, you’re officially invited to my family Thanksgiving. These M&M’s are your standard specialty M&M’s, slightly larger in size and featuring several different colors. (Side note: Is it me or do M&M’s and Oreo seem to be in a competition for who can create the most flavors? I’m ...

REVIEW: Cookies & Screeem M&M’s

These Cookies & Screeem M&M’s exemplify a trend I have been noticing in the last few years. In a world inundated with pumpkin, peppermint, and red velvet flavors for holidays, some companies make whatever flavor they feel like and somehow say it’s a holiday version. (I was disappointed last November when I asked for a pumpkin shake at Jack in the Box and their only “seasonal” offering was a Golden Oreo salted caramel shake. What does that have to do with Thanksgiving or Christmas!?) Like last y...

Red Nose Day USA: 5 Questions With Comic Relief Inc. CEO Janet Scardino

Thursday, May 25th is the annual Red Nose Day in the US, a spinoff of the British annual fundraiser by Comic Relief. It’s a great example of the intersection of business, brands and social purpose, with the continuing support of NBCUniversal, Walgreens, M&M’s—and a host of celebrities and other supporters, not least of which is the public who give so generously every year.

REVIEW: M&M’s Caramel

The history of the M&M goes something like this. They were released in 1941 to melt in the mouth of our soldiers, and not in their hands, while they fought the bloody battles of World War II. After the United States’ victory it was clear the candy was also a success, and the Peanut variety came along in 1954, followed by Almond in 1960, and then things got really “nuts” in the 90’s with Peanut Butter, Mini’s, and Crispy versions. But recently, Mars developed the technology to fill the center wi...

REVIEW: Limited Edition Strawberry Nut M&M’s

One of 2016’s biggest snack breakthroughs was the expansion of the Peanut M&M’s line. America voted between three new flavors, with Coffee Nut coming away the victor. Coffee Nut got my vote, but really enjoyed Honey Nut, and even found Chili Nut to be a decent and novel idea. Coffee Nut has now become a candy rack mainstay, and it looks like Mars isn’t stopping there. Say hello to Strawberry Nut M&M’s. I found it at my local Rite Aid. I was in there with intentions of buying a greeting card, wh...

REVIEW: Vanilla Cupcake M&M’s

The trouble with vanilla cupcake flavor is — just what IS it? Is it simply a marketing ploy because vanilla is “too boring” on its own? What exactly is added to a vanilla item to make it taste like a cupcake? If you asked me what a vanilla cupcake tastes like, I’d say vanilla – in which case, does it need any additions to make it taste like a cupcake? It feels like I’m lost in a hall of mirrors. Enter Vanilla Cupcake M&M’s. I hoped they would solve this existential crisis for me, since Hershey’...

REVIEW: M&M’s White Cheesecake

I’m not in the business of wasting anyone’s time. Therefore, I’m literally going to tell you right away my favorite thing about the new White Cheesecake flavor of M&M’s: The size. These puppies are not your average M&M. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the bag and found they were about two times the size of the regular chocolate candy. Much more substantial, and in my opinion, a better way to portion control. (If you can keep your hand out of the M&M bowl without mindless munching, plea...

REVIEW: Shimmery White Chocolate M&M’s

I am of the opinion that there’s very little in life that can’t be improved by a bit of glitter. So you can imagine how excited I was to hear about Shimmery White Chocolate M&M’s – a limited edition with sparkles! Visions of glitzy holiday food crafts danced in my head. After locating a small stash in the barely-yet-stocked holiday aisle of Target, I hurried home – careful not to jostle too much for fear of dislodging any shimmer.

REVIEW: White BOO-tterscotch M&M’s

Does anyone under the age of 60 like butterscotch besides me? I know I instantly think of the candy dish at my Grandmother’s house, where at any given time you could treat yourself to a hard butterscotch stuck to its orange wrapper, a root beer barrel, or a button from an old sweater. On a good day you might even find a Chocolate Riesen. If you asked most kids they’d probably consider the button over the butterscotch, but I wasn’t that kid. If you’re like me, seek help. But also, if you’re lik...
