Peanut M&M’S have been a candy mainstay for me for years now. When I was in high school, once the final bell rang, I would grab a bag of Peanut M&M’S at the corner store on my way home as an afternoon treat. Never would I have imagined that nearly seven years later, I would a) be collaborating with M&M’S® and b) announcing to YOU LOVELY PEOPLE that M&M’S has just created three new internationally-inspired Peanut flavors for Flavor Vote 2019: Thai Coconut Peanut M&M’S®, Mexican Jalapeño Peanut M&M’S® and English Toffee Peanut M&M’S®! THAT’S THREE NEW OFFERINGS, FOLKS. It’s a BIG DEAL for us M&M’S fans out here in 2019. What a time to be alive.
I was tasked with trying all three flavors and giving my completely honest and unabashed opinions on each (getting paid to eat candies? THE DREAM, BABY.) So here they are:
THAI COCONUT PEANUT
The sweet-n’-savory Thai Coconut Peanut M&M’S were inspired by the tropics of Thailand. My take? Whoaaaa nelly were these coconutty! If you’re not a super big fan of coconut, these probably aren’t for you. I, for one, love coconut so these were intense but still delicious!
MEXICAN JALAPEÑO PEANUT
Spicy hot peppers and chocolate are widely known to be good together, but honestly, these were my least favorite of the three. I didn’t find the spice to have enough kick to overpower the peanut inside. If you’re not into super spicy things, the mild flavor of these might be your jam!
ENGLISH TOFFEE PEANUT
I was most excited to try the English Toffee Peanut M&M’S (remember when I told you I’m a secret tea-aboo?). These were sooooo rich and amazing- I cast my vote for these to stay a permanent flavor!
