Pretzel M&M's

Pretzel M&M's


At this exact moment, I feel like Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark. I've been looking and looking for Pretzel M&M's since they were announced last year. I was at the store tonight on a random grocery run and there they were, in the checkout aisle! What a find! I looked around wondering if anyone else had spotted them. I scooped up 3 bags and cradled them like treasure until I had to give them up for the barcode scanner. I only handed over 1 bag, "I'll hang on to these," I said. The woman behind the scanner looked at me funny. Not that I cared, I had finally found another candy to cross of my candy wish list!

If you read that and thought that I might like candy a little too much, you are not alone. I think that's the same thought the clerk at Wal-Mart had and then my wife had as I rushed home to tell her of my new treasure. BUT, I've been looking forward to these because I really like M&M's and because I enjoy snacks that combine sweet and salty flavors. I remember as a child my mom would make me saltine crackers with frosting on them. What a treat!

Pretzel M&M's



There are around 18-19 M&M's in these 1.14 ounce bags. This weighs quite less than a normal bag of M&M's which is 1.69 ounces. These are the same color as regular M&M's, nothing new to report there. These are a nice round shape with the M logo printed on each one. These candies have the standard tasty M&M candy coating on the outside. Inside there is a very light covering of chocolate over the pretzel middle which is a small round ball of pretzel covered in salt. These are great to crunch in one bite, do not try to bite them in half first (kind of messy that way). I preferred to let them melt in my mouth, so I could get a very nice salty-and-chocolate-with-candy-coating flavor going. They are very good. I've really enjoyed the first bag of these, but now I have to share with my family. I'm going to make a bag of popcorn tonight and toss another bag in. I can't wait to see how that will taste. My overall opinion is that this is a very nice addition to the M&M's lineup. I like these a lot better than the old crispy M&M's. This is a more complex flavor with the sweet and salty and crunchy all in one candy.

oh my gosh, my mouth is watering after reading this!! nice review. i, too, have been on a mission to find these babies. which store did you find them at? i'm so jealous!

Sugarpressure

Thank you for the comment Christina. I found these at our local WalMart, in the checkout aisle. Normally WalMart is not the best place to find new candy which made this find so surprising. Normally I find the newest stuff at independent gas stations or truck stops. Walgreens and CVS do a pretty good job too. Good luck finding some!

I need to find these.

Only 150 cals and 5g of fat? Wow.

Sugarpressure

It's a much smaller package to get it down to 150 calories. Peanut M&M's are 1.74 ounces, these are only 1.14 ounces. These are well worth the purchase though. I stopped back at WalMart last night to pick up some batteries and the freshly opened boxes of Pretzel M&M's were almost all gone. People were snapping them up like crazy! Thank you for the comment.

laura

i'm going to head to wal-mart right away! i too have been hunting for these ever since they were announced. i'm so excited for you that you found them!

Julie

Saw these at Sam's Club in St. Louis yesterday!

Sugarpressure

That's great! I'm glad they are being stocked at more stores now. Thank you for the comment and for reading Sugarpressure.com

Found a bag of these the other day -- fantastic. Hoping against hope these make it into the regular lineup....

They taste like chocolate covered stale saltines (absolutely gross) and I happen to be a big fan of chocolate covered pretzels.
