I finally got to try Coconut M&Ms. I saw them in a gas station about a year ago when I happened to not have any money on me. I thought they sounded good and wanted to try them but figured that since they were new that I would be seeing more of them. I was wrong, they were a limited edition and I did not see them again for almost a year...and even now they are not in very many places. QuikTrip and Walgreens seem to have them in stock most consistently in mid-Iowa.
Coconut M&Ms are good. The really reminded me of something but I couldn't quite put my finger on what exactly. The first thing to pop into my brain was a Jr Mint...but that wasn't right. Angie suggested Pina Colada. That is very close but not quite right. I am still trying to place what exactly it reminded me of, but have had no luck. I liked them, they were a nice change but I couldn't see eating them that often. It's just not a taste that I have cravings for. Angie and I didn't even finish a regular sized bag between the two of us. Mixed with a bag of Plain M&Ms (I don't subscribe to calling them Milk Chocolate M&Ms instead of Plain) might be nice...more chocolate to spread out the coconut flavor a bit.
I know that Mars inc. also released Pretzel M&Ms this summer and I look forward to trying those soon.
But would really like to try the Strawberried Peanut Butter that came out last year. Basically PB&J in an M&M. I know that I can still order a case off of Amazon, but I am unsure if I want that many. As I have learned from Cadbury Eggs this spring...I would rather have a smaller amount of product and be left wishing for more.
But I am really envious of the Wildly Cherry M&Ms that came out in the UK in 2008. Much like Hot Tamales Ice, I am sure I will probably never taste them...but they sound delicious.
