Poll: What’s the Best M&M’s Crunchy Flavor?

4

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:

My Review:

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?

 

 

Rank Your Favorite Doughnuts for National Doughnut Day

9

Today is National Doughnut Day and I’m embracing it. Doughnuts are one of those feel-good comfort foods, (when you’re not focused on the calorie and fat content). So, give me a reason to eat doughnuts, and I’m going for it.

Although, I have many favorites, I hold a special place for Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Growing up, I can remember getting them only on special occasions. They were such a treat, and that was before the evolution of specialty flavors.

Nowadays, I’m biased to the chocolate glazed doughnuts, basic or filled. But, I want to know, which are your favorites?
