  2. Awesome!!! I can’t wait to try them.

    Cybele, do you recall a cookie-center M&M variety?  I bought a bag once several years ago and loved them, but never saw them again!

  3. I found these at Walmart the other day. They’re okay, but the chocolate to pretzel ratio isn’t what I expected. It only has a very thin layer of chocolate. The pretzel is pretty much all you can taste along with the candy shell. I think if they had used a thicker coating of chocolate it would have tasted better.

    I love the packaging however, and the fact that the cute little Orange M&M gets to represent a line of M&M’s finally. Since I collect M&M stuff, including packs of different M&M’s this one will look great in that collection!

  4. Thank you for the link. I agree with gracecarriveau, having the Orange M&M on the package is pretty cool, I failed to notice that in my review.  Normally the red and green M&Ms; get all the attention.

  5. Johnathan, I remember the M&Ms; you’re talking about! They came in a blue bag and were called M&Ms; crispy, I’m pretty sure. I loved them. smile

  6. I got these at Wal-Mart on Friday.  I was at the Checkout line and was totally suprised to see them (I didn’t even know they were coming out).  I’m a bit sweet and salty fan, but these didn’t do it for me, the pretzel is a good size, but the chocolate was so tasteless and blandly sweet.  If they had been covered in a thicker dark chocolate, these could have been great.

  7. I got them at WalMart too and I liked the chocolate and candy coating, but the pretzel was not pretzel-y enough for me. They’re clearly going for the sweet and salty thing, which is brilliant, however these need more pretzel flavor.

    And as for the crispy m & ms…those are the best! Why do companies stop making yummy things. Bring back the crispy m & ms!
