This is not a new flavor for M&Ms, but we’ve never tried them or reviewed them before and we can’t resist special edition flavors of anything. First introduced in 2018, these are back on the shelves for Valentine’s Day 2020.
At first glance, we love the gigantic-sized M&Ms that are used in the special editions. If we want flavor, we want a LOT OF FLAVOR and these larger sized M&Ms give you plenty of flavor. We also love the great colors, they remind of us Spring, with their great pastel look. However, that flavor has to be a good flavor. This flavor, well, it’s not so good.
This flavor is white chocolate flavor, cheesecake, and graham cracker. We found the graham cracker flavor missing, but the white chocolate and cheesecake flavors are definitely there. These have less of a cream cheesecake flavor and more of a cream cheese frosting flavor. The white chocolate is a familiar M&Ms flavor, it has been used many times before but it isn’t an M&Ms fan favorite at our house. The taste of cream cheese frosting wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t the cheesecake graham cracker taste we thought it would be.
We thought these were okay, sort of our middle of the road rating. Fun to try, okay to eat, we just won’t eat 3/4 of the bag we purchased. We found our bag at WalMart for $2.84 USD
