Review: New “Flavor Vote” Peanut M&M’s

At first, I put my money on the honey-nut flavor being the best of the bunch — I mean, honey roasted peanuts are soooo much better than plain ol’ nuts — but I have to say this flavor was a HUGE disappointment. Aside from a slightly sweeter than normal aftertaste, these M&M’s taste almost exactly like the original peanut flavor. It’s not that they’re bad, they’re just nothing special.
Chili Nut Peanut M&M’s
This flavor was the most surprising of the bunch. I was expecting a chili flavor and not necessarily any heat itself — and boy, was I wrong. The first few bites, all you get is chocolate and then BAM! The spice smacks you right in the mouth. It’s not an overwhelming sense of heat, you won’t need to go running for a cold pop, but there’s definitely some spice in these nuts. Some pieces are far spicier than others, which kind of makes it exciting to see what you’ll get next. Definitely my favorite of the three flavors.
Coffee Nut Peanut M&M’s
If there’s one food item I absolutely hate, it’s coffee. Everything about it repulses me — the smell, the taste, the way it lingers on everyone’s breath. Yuck! Still, I decided I’d give this flavor a fair shake and see what it was like … but I couldn’t even finish chewing one single M&M before the dry heaves set in and I had to spit it out. I tried to fight it, but I just couldn’t. This is good news, I guess, for coffee lovers because the only thing I could honestly taste was coffee. I don’t exactly know how I would interpret it, but I heard someone use “robust” to describe the flavor. Other people in the office who are daily coffee drinkers said this was their favorite flavor, hands down.MORE NEWS: Commission Urges Michigan Supreme Court To Reject Redistricting Challenge
