Pretzel M&M’s

With Halloween around the corner, it’s an appropriate time to talk candy.

Those of you who read my blog on a regular basis know I was less than enthralled with the Premium M&Ms that were introduced last year. But I was pleasantly surprised by a recent sampling of the latest addition to the M&M lineup, an M&M with a pretzel in the middle.

Pretzel M&M’s look like  peanut M&M, but they’re much lighter (which means you can eat more of them in one sitting). And they’ve got a salty/sweet thing going on, combining the tastes that people most often crave. I suppose it’s not much different from mixing popcorn with chocolate candy, which I often see moviegoers do at theatres.

I’m a skeptic when it comes to riffs on the basic M&M. After all, why mess with success? Can’t have too much of a good thing? Fortunately, the Mars company got it right this time, the pretzel M&M is a worthy entry into the M&M family.

But I still think  the Premium line ought to be junked.

    I like the premium line, but think it has been junked as I cannot find it anymore.

      I think they still have some of premium flavors but they have been repackaged and may not be as obvious on the shelf as before.
