Hi Chocolate Fans!
This past spring, M&M’s introduced a trio of new “Crunchy” flavors.
Mint, Raspberry, Espresso
The catch? Only one flavor will continue, based on the results of a public vote. Although official voting is now closed, ( you can vote for fun here), I wanted to know your thoughts…after all, you all are the REAL chocolate experts.
Have you tried the new M&M’s? Let’s take our own sample poll:
I sampled all of the flavors, and I have to say, the results surprised me. Based on the flavors, I expected the Mint to be my top choice. Mint, plus crunch, seemed like a no-brainer. But it actually wasn’t my favorite. In my mind, I had associated Mint crunch to other candies, such as Hershey’s “Cookies n’ Mint Bar.
Do you know how I would describe that bar? Minty and Crunchy… and delicious. Unfortunately, the Crunchy Mint M&M’s were disappointing. The flavor fell flat. The crunch was there, but it was lacking that rich chocolate taste.
If I had to choose a winner, I’d pick the Espresso. But honestly, I wouldn’t go out of my way for them. Now, come out with an M&M’s Mint COOKIE Crunch flavor, and we’ll have a real winner. In the mean time, I’ll stick to Peanut M&M’s.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on these new flavors. And while we’re talking flavors, what’s your favorite M&M’s flavor of all time?
