M&M’s are some of my favorite candies, but there has always been one problem with them. How are you supposed to choose between classic milk chocolate, peanut, peanut butter and the many other varieties on the candy shelf?
Well, M&M’s has given us the perfect solution: put multiple varieties in one bag, of course! In a move that has been requested by fans for years, new M&M’s Mix packs combine three different kinds of M&M’s into two different variety packs.
The Classic Mix includes perhaps the three most iconic types: milk chocolate, peanut and peanut butter. A definite crowd-pleaser!
If you like even more peanuts with your chocolate, the Peanut Mix will include three varieties of peanut M&M’s covered in different shells: milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate.
Unfortunately, you’ll have to exercise some patience before you’ll be able to rip open either of these variety packs. In an Instagram post where they announced the new mixes, M&M’s said they will be hitting retail shelves nationwide in April 2021.
While you wait, you can easily make some mixes yourself, if you don’t mind buying all the varieties separately and combining them. Or, you could make some other M&M’s treats, like a Hershey bar cake or, since it’s getting close to Halloween, some M&M’s explosion pumpkin cookies.
The popcorn is sweet and salty and is drizzled with chocolate, then coated in M&M’s Minis. You can order the M&M’s Minis popcorn in two- or eight-count packs of 5-and-1/4-ounce bags from Snack Pop’s website for either $7.98 or $29.99, respectively. You can also find it in 16-packs full of 1-ounce bags at Sam’s Club as part of a variety pack that also includes Snickers popcorn and Twix popcorn.
If you’re the adventurous sort who loves to try new M&M’s flavors, you’ll only have to wait a couple more months for another one. White Chocolate Sugar Cookie M&M’s will be arriving in stores this November to help mark the holiday season.
The festive new flavor features a crispy center surrounded by a white-chocolate, sugar cookie-flavored shell that is colored either green, red or white, just like a holiday sugar cookie covered in sprinkles.
