Quick Hits: Pretzel M&M's

The last few years have seen some interesting experiments within the M&M's brand and they've generally been good with the odd exception along the way. The latest of these experiments is the Pretzel M&M. Simple concept - an M&M with a pretzel in the middle - like the Peanut M&M only different. Pretzels and chocolate go together like two things that go really well together so this really seems like a slam dunk.

The concept is a good one, but the proof is, as they say, in the pudding. So how does the Pretzel M&M deliver? Pretty good actually. The crunch is nice and the pretzel tastes like, well, pretzel which is, I suppose, exactly what one would hope. I'm not sure I like the pretzel crunch after the candy crunch on the outside, though. It's a little different than the crunch of the peanut in the Peanut M&M's and I guess I'm just unfairly comparing the two. The Peanut M&M's are near perfect so I'm biased toward them. But all that aside it's a nice combo in terms of taste. The little pretzel nuggets have a nice bit of salt to them which gives that wonderful sweet and salty combo that just hits the spot so well.

A simple concept combining two great tastes into one little bundle of candy-coated goodness. I'm actually curious as to why it took them so long to do this. It really seems to be a natural extension of the brand to me while some of the other ideas they've tried (PB&J anybody?) have been a bit of a stretch. Score-wise I'm going to have to give these a 8.75 out of 10 as they are pretty darn yummy. They make a nice alternative to the classic Peanut M&M's and are quite a nice addition to the brand.

Oh, and there are NO yellow Pretzel M&M's. What's up with that?

I just tried these and was a bit disappointed. I would have to characterize the taste as "nothing special".

Samantha Said:

My daughter and I tried them. She's 8 and one of her first comments was "why is there no yellow?" :)

They are pretty good, but a little to malted milkballish for my taste. I really didn't get enough pretzel taste.

I love these new M&Ms, the combination of salty and sweet is delicious! Reminds me of vanilla salt caramels



Amanda Said:

I always wondered why it took M&Ms so long to come out with these too, its such a no-brainer that chocolate and pretzels go together. I always used to mix a bowl of pretzels and M&Ms because they're so good together!

Eye-popping David Beckham. Beckham to start in steamy Super Bowl advertisements, bare, crowned most sexy dude on this planet. I'm advised David strips down and then reveals his bod for brand spanking new multi high dollar Super Bowl XLVI ad. Bodywear and underwear collaboration vs Tim Tebow for H&M. Beckham actually confirms - of course - "I Love Underwear’ :-) Get your soccer supplies at soccer.com, gift cards, 20% to 50%, free shipping Valentine deals... http://goo.gl/adpVy

Love your posts. Have since purchased your book

Thanks for your article. I would also love to say this that the very first thing you will need to do is determine whether you really need repairing credit. To do that you have got to get your hands on a replica of your credit score. That should never be difficult, since government mandates that you are allowed to obtain one cost-free copy of the credit report every year. You just have to consult the right people. You can either look into the website with the Federal Trade Commission or maybe contact one of the main credit agencies immediately.

Thumbs up for your blog. I found it on Bing.

Das Chroma Porsche Messer P-01 ist nun meins :-) Habe gestern mein Paket von wirmachenscharf.com bekommen. Das Kochmesser sieht echt genial aus und liegt beim Schneiden echt gut in der Hand. War bis jetzt eine gute Entscheidung... hoffentlich bleibt es auch schön lange scharf.
