One of my co-workers likes to try new kinds of candy, especially M&Ms and Hershey’s kisses — crazy varieties like Cherry Kisses and coconut M&M’s — so when I saw these “M&M’s Premiums Chocolate Trio” the other day at Target I picked up a bag to share at work.
My co-worker found it quite funny as I opened the bag and exclaimed, “Oh wow, they’re huge and kind of planetary.” (What can I say, I work for NASA, and they have this pretty marbled look — like a planet). They’re also bigger than regular M&M’s, about the size of the peanut M&M’s.
As for the taste, they’re OK. It’s layered (inside out) milk chocolate, white chocolate and dark chocolate. Several at work commented on how un-M&M-like the “hard candy shell” was. In their opinion it didn’t have as much “crunch” as a regular M&M. Another commented on how you couldn’t taste the three distinct chocolate flavors, it just kind of all ran together. I actually like them better than regular M&M’s, but I’m not a big M&M fan to begin with.
