So, apparently peanut butter M&Ms are a thing.
I did not know about this.
I also did not know that M&Ms now come in sizes. No, not just different sized bags, but different sizes. You can buy giant bags of M&Ms in minis, regulars, and jumbos. I was unaware there was a large demand for various M&M sizes, but evidently I was wrong.
At any rate, these have happened.
And you know what, they're not all that bad.
They mostly taste like candy-covered peanut butter, and they could use more chocolate, but I'm pretty sure if they added more chocolate these would just be chocolate covered peanut butter eggs, and that's already a thing. They aren't quite as sweet as Reese's pieces, which was disappointing, but I'm probably going to eat them all anyway, because, yaknow, they're peanut butter M&M eggs.
I also bought a bag of the Carrot Cake M&Ms but very much considered cancelling the taste test, expecting a repeat of the Candy Corn M&Ms from last Halloween.
I was wrong.
I was very, very wrong.
These are actually delicious.
Strange, but delicious.
They taste like nutmeg and cream cheese frosting and some other things I haven't figured out yet (carrots, presumably). They do not taste like M&Ms, which is kind of unnerving. I keep expecting to get hit with some crazy chocolateyness to ruin them, but it hasn't happened yet, so I'll keep munching along until it does.
If you don't like carrot cake you will not like these, at all. Consider yourself warned. But if you feel so inclined to buy them anyway (perhaps due to the very seductive Playboy M&M on the front) I'm sure you'll be able to find a carrot-cake-loving friend who will appreciate them.
This is the part of the show where I ask you to comment about whether or not you like carrot cake, but instead of that, I challenge you to write your best "Dear Penthouse" letter about these sherbert-colored M&Ms. Twitter shout out to the winner! (I'd offer you a bag of M&Ms, but these aren't going to last long. Sorry.)
