Limited Edition M&Ms Coconut

M&Ms Limited Edition CoconutHot on the tails of the Limited Edition Strawberried Peanut Butter M&Ms will be the release of Limited Edition Coconut M&Ms in August. (More here)

The cream colored packet holds 1.5 ounces of green, white and brown milk chocolate morsels flavored with coconut.

As with most limited editions, the package is a bit slighter than the regular products. This one clocks in at 1.5 ounces instead of the normal 1.69 in a Milk Chocolate M&Ms pack.

Coconut M&Ms

The package is cute and playful, featuring Ms. Green reclining in the sand, leaning against a coconut filled with coconut M&Ms. In the background the Yellow Peanut M&M is falling out of a coconut palm laden with more coconuts.

The contents smell much like most M&Ms, sweet and slightly woodsy but only the slightest whiff of coconut.

M&Ms Limited Edition Coconut

The individual lentils are a bit puffier than regular M&Ms, though not as big as the Peanut Butter variety.

Inside they’re just milk chocolate but with an added touch of coconut flavoring (but no actual coconut to be found in the ingredients).

The chocolate is fudgy, the flavor is a little salty and tropical but with a strange yogurty tang (kind of like Hershey’s) ... the crunch of the shell is crisp.

On the whole, it’s a nice change-up, very appealing. It’s not something that I think deserves to be made part of the regular repertoire. But see the review on Hershey’s Almond Joy Pieces.

UPDATE 9/29/2009: Mars has announced that M&MS Coconut will become part of their permanent line of candies. You can expect them in stores starting in December 2009.

  3. coconut m&ms;?!? I need to find these! I love coconut

  4. These look good, but the Almond Joy pieces look even better.  I think I’ll have to try both when they show up.

    BTW, for any Zelda fans out there, when I first saw the package I thought Yellow looked like a golden skulltula hanging from the tree. smile

    Comment by joseph on 6/02/09 at 8:15 am #
  5. I was sad to see that these don’t actually contain coconut, especially considering the future Almond Joy pieces will. I would LOVE to bit into a little chocolate with coconut.

    Comment by Hillary on 6/02/09 at 11:20 am #
  6. Had a chance to try these and they were wonderful. The flavor is perfect for anyone who loves coconut.
    Am anxiously waiting to be able to buy them.

  7. These remind me of hawaii.

    Comment by Adeleine on 6/06/09 at 3:24 pm #
  8. found these yesterday at my local grocery store.  I was surprised to see them so soon.  They are ok, but I think that if I really wanted coconut I would rather have something that actually had coconut in it.

    Comment by lynn on 6/11/09 at 4:08 am #
  9. I bought these yesterday at our 7-11… I wonder if we are part of a test market since these aren’t due out for another month or two.

    Comment by Taylor on 6/15/09 at 6:25 pm #
  10. I picked these up as an impulse purchase at the grocery store.  Very good flavor even if there is no actual coconut.

    Comment by Theresa on 6/16/09 at 10:18 am #
  11. Found these at the Dollar Tree in Portland. I think I paid 50? for a 1.5 oz pack. Might want to hit those stores up if you can’t find them anywhere else. Tastes good but like others have said, REAL coconut would have been a nice touch!

    Comment by TheKeeper on 6/23/09 at 3:49 pm #
  12. I live in Illinois and I went to the store Dollar Tree and found Coconut M&M’s, anyone who knows me knows how addicted I am to coconut and oh my god! These things are amazing, they only had a few left, but I bought them, the packaging is even cute, hee hee… I wish they weren’t for a limited time, they are AMAZING!!!

    Comment by Jody C. on 6/26/09 at 3:38 pm #
  13. I love M&M’s and I love Coconut so I bought these on sale just last week at my local Krogers (4 big bags).  I am a national level bodybuilder getting ready for a contest so cant eat them for another 3 weeks!!!!  aaaaahhh!! But was hoping they had the Coconut with peanut M&M’s??  Did they just make them plain?

  14. Christina,

    Where is your show?  What category are you training for?

    Comment by Theresa on 6/29/09 at 7:10 am #
  15. I picked up a bag on vacation at a Rite-Aid in Ellensburg WA.  I’m hoping I can find them here at home in California.  They are fantastic.  Taste kind of like an Almond Joy without the almond.

  17. Coconut M&M’S are fantastic, I will buy them and put in the frezzer incase they don’t stay out too long.

    Comment by Sandy on 7/06/09 at 6:56 am #
  18. I found them this weekend in Sam’s Club just north of Sacramento CA. A box of 24 for just under $12.00. The price label on the shelf said it was a one time purchase.

    Comment by Denise on 7/06/09 at 3:58 pm #
  19. What store have you found the new coconut M&m’s in??

    Comment by Sandra on 7/09/09 at 7:31 am #
  20. I got some of these.  They are pretty good, but I cant find the rest of them.  I was eating some just a couple minutes ago, and the bag is gone…

    Comment by Cora on 7/09/09 at 9:16 am #
  21. I just tried these at m&m World in NYC - they warrant a “Yummy” rating especially if you like a choco-coconut combo.  I wish I got a full pound instead of just a sampling.

    Comment by Mia on 7/10/09 at 4:05 am #
  22. These are awesome. They sure know how to please chocolate and coconut lovers. Yum!

    Comment by Sarah on 7/19/09 at 10:52 am #
  27. I LOVE the coconut M&M’s!!!  I found them in a vending machine in a small town park in Virginia a couple weeks ago while on vacation and have been searching for them ever since!  I even called the M&M’s company to see where they are.  If you call and give them your zip code and last name they will put in a recommendation for them to stay around.

    Comment by Christina on 7/20/09 at 9:31 am #
  28. My brother in law picked up some at a Circle K and I grabbed a pack from him…HEAVEN!  That was two days ago and I haven’t been able to find them anywhere since.  They are fantastic; I plan to buy up as many as I can since they’re limited ed.  (I’m so greedy!)

    Comment by sandi on 7/20/09 at 3:25 pm #
  29. We had these Coconut M&M’s at my job and they were the biggest hit ever.  Everyone comes by and asks if there are anymore.  Unfortunately, we have not seen anymore in our area.  We bought every bag the store had.  Hopefully they hit the general market soon because these are the best M&M’s.  Not too much coconut but you can definitely taste the flavor of coconut!!!!  Love it!!!!

  32. OMG!!!!!!!!  my sugar-buddy gave these to me one day!!!  I was in heaven. A co-worker of mine was watching me eat these(i didnt know) and she said the look on my face was PRICELESS!!  LOL

    Comment by angie on 7/21/09 at 3:44 pm #
  33. I’ve had a big bag since June that i’ve gotten from my local FoodLion.  They are really really tasty, but not something you’d want to eat a lot of.  Like maybe eat 10 at a time every day or whhenever you get the craving for them.

    Comment by Mel on 7/23/09 at 5:00 am #
  34. These are incredible!!! I’m going to be sad when they take them off the shelves. I think they should turn this limited edition m&m into a permanent flavor! Yum!!

    Comment by Elizabeth on 7/23/09 at 10:49 am #
  35. OMG we were on vacation in Erie PA and I picked up a bag. I love them and so does my husband. Can not find them any where around our house.

  40. Ah, these are amazing. I bought a bag a CVS next day they were sold out & the lady said they will never get more. I freakkked out. Today, I was in kroger & i found a huge bag! I bought two. They are so worth it. Keep Making them!!

    Comment by Alexandra on 7/31/09 at 3:30 pm #
  41. They are great but we here in Alaska got cheated once again.  Only one chain of stores had them and if you weren’t first there then you lost out.  Send more to us PLEASE!!!

    Comment by Linda on 7/31/09 at 6:57 pm #
  42. I just found Coconut M&Ms; in a deli by the pool at Hilton Head Island Resort.  They are absolutely the best candy that I have ever tasted.  I bought the last three packs. When I went back the next day to get more, the guy said they can’t get them, that they were a promotional item.  I hope they continue making this candy.  They are yummy!

    Comment by Coconut Lover on 8/01/09 at 12:41 pm #
  43. I picked a bag of these up at a miltary commisary.  After trying them, I went back to buy the rest that they had left.  I hope that coconut m & m’s become more than just a limited edition.  I will be buying them weekly.

    Comment by Jodi on 8/02/09 at 3:19 pm #
  44. These coconut m&ms; are by far my fav.  I pray they make them available all the time.  Please please please keep them on the market….

    Comment by Jami Jackson on 8/02/09 at 3:43 pm #
  45. My girlfriend found these and gave my husband and I some and we LOVED them….unfortunetly we cant find them anywhere.  Please tell us these will be a new product, and where we can get some more!

    Comment by Rhonda Pritchard on 8/02/09 at 3:45 pm #
  46. I have been looking for the coconut m & m’s everywhere.  Have not been able to locate any yet.  They were advertised at Kroger a couple of weeks ago, but they did not have any at my Kroger.  I hope I find some soon.

    Comment by Trudie on 8/03/09 at 9:53 am #
  47. Where can you buy them?

    Comment by Lisa on 8/05/09 at 4:33 pm #
  48. I put a shout out to all my friends and family about these.  My sister in law called me and told me she found them at Wallgreens.  I went and bought 19 packages ( not all for me smile ) the next day!

    Lisa & Penny - if you read the comments here, many folks mention where they found them. I got some at Walgreen’s.

    Comment by Cybele on 8/06/09 at 6:43 am #
  51. Some 7-11 and Walgreen’s stores have both coconut and strawberry/peanut M&M’s. However, finding these are a hit-or-miss.

    Comment by TaissiaB on 8/06/09 at 2:30 pm #
  52. I tried the Coconut M&M’s today….WOW they are great. They are my new favorite. I am looking everywhere for them. I hope they keep these on the market!!!!

  55. I love M&Ms;!! The coconut ones are out of control. I took them around for everyone i know to try and we all love them and now we can no longer find them. :(  They are Great!!!!

    Comment by Kelly on 8/07/09 at 7:21 pm #
  56. I found the coconut M & M’s and think they are the best M & M out there.  But now I cannot find them anywhere.  They are great and I hope they will keep them around.

    Comment by Patty Fenner on 8/08/09 at 2:22 pm #
  57. So where are they selling the ‘big bags’ on the West coast? I want a bag, not the individual snack size. I’ve looked at Wal-greens, Ralphs, Rite Aid, & Vons, no luck yet. :(

    Comment by Whitney Hagan on 8/10/09 at 6:42 am #
  58. These are way too good! Maybe it’s a good thing that they’re only available for a limited time as I would eat them all the time!

    Comment by Lisa Carr on 8/10/09 at 7:46 am #
  59. I have had these and they sold out like hot cakes.. No stores have even a trace of them anymore. They were very very Good! I am not much of a candy eater but I am completely in love with the taste of these and I HOPE they become Perm!!

    Comment by TIffany on 8/10/09 at 11:42 am #
  60. These have to be made into permanent flavor…awesome!!!!

    Comment by Wes Cardin on 8/11/09 at 4:47 pm #
  61. I love these! I went to 5 stores to find them after I had them at a bridal shower. I finally found them at a Walgreens. I would love for these to be permanent rather than limited edition.  YUMMM!

    Angie - did you try Walgreen’s? I saw them at the one in Echo Park over the weekend.

    There are quite a few places on eBay that have them. (But as a fellow Angeleno, I don’t buy chocolate online in the summer.)

    Comment by Cybele on 8/20/09 at 10:16 am #
  69. EXCELLENT! Please KEEP!!!!!  I found them while I was on vacation at Walgreen’s in Grayling, MI.  Now I can’t find them locally & I am desperate!  In 2002 I bought a case of dulce de leche m&ms; off e-bay- I don’t want to go to that extreme again:)

    Comment by Allison on 8/21/09 at 2:39 am #
  70. Found the coconut M&M’s at the checkout counter at Walgreens, it’s the only place I’ve seen them… Since I like coconut and chocolate, I was curious and bought a bag.  They were very good!  It’s a nice summery alternative to plain M&M’s and I hope you keep them as part of the M&M “family”.  Sometimes you feel like a coconut and sometimes you don’t.

    Comment by Darlene on 8/21/09 at 9:27 am #
  71. I have to drive 60+ miles to get them, and LOVE them!  I agree with what others have said and I would love them even more if there was real coconut in them.  I also hope they keep them!

    Comment by Kendie on 8/22/09 at 6:30 am #
  72. These are great!  I hope they keep them too!  Yummy coconut flavor.

  77. I LOVE them! I only found 1 bag and that was while on the road traveling from OK to CO. I found them in TX. Anyone know where in the Lawton, OK area to get the coconut m&m’s?! I need a fix. Wish they came in big bags for purchase. They would be great in the freezer and eat them frozen. I used to eat the crispy m&m’s that way.

    Comment by Sue on 8/26/09 at 5:03 pm #
  78. My Dad tried these and abolutely loved them! I have been to about 20 places looking for these and they either haven’t heard of them…or they are out! So, please make them a permananent fixture in the M&M line. I haven’t tried them…but would love I will keep on hunting!!

    Comment by Coconut M&M Stalker on 8/28/09 at 6:57 am #
  79. I bought one small bag of Coconut M & M’s at Walgreens.  I liked them so much that I went back and bought four more bags.  I love coconut & I have to agree that these are great.  I hope they are added to the regular line of M & M’s.

    Comment by gail on 8/28/09 at 12:42 pm #
  80. I saw these at my local Walmart this morning and picked up two packs.  WOW!  DELICIOUS! Going back for more ASAP!  I LOVE them.  I hope they decide to include them permanently!

  82. My store that I am a manager of has a whole slew of these coconut m & m’s.  I am so surprised that they aren’t sold out by now.  My old store sold them out in a week.  We have an entire display of them.  They are so awesome.

    Comment by Judy on 9/03/09 at 1:50 pm #
  83. Coconut M&Ms; will be a full time flavor in December along with Cherry.  Big ad in the convenience store magazine also has new items from Mars.

    Comment by Scott on 9/05/09 at 9:23 am #
  84. I actually stumbled upon these in a mini-mart near LaVerne College in California a few weeks ago.. they are WONDERFUL, quite the opposite from the bland Strawberried Peanut Butter ones I tried the other day.  I would love to have these stay around!

    Comment by Tim on 9/05/09 at 11:00 am #
  85. I’ve bought 6 bags and only have 1 left.


    Now they are gone and I can’t find them anywhere.

    I want more.

    Comment by Zoose on 9/07/09 at 12:07 pm #
  86. I saw these in Bermuda.  I bought three small bags, now I’m home and need to find these.  They are excellent and I definitely taste coconut in them.  Not sure why others don’t see it, taste it.  I hope they stick around.

    Comment by Cynthia on 9/11/09 at 10:41 am #
  87. These need to be more widely available!!

    Comment by Joey on 9/12/09 at 9:04 am #
  88. These are great! I am a huge coconut fan! It took me FOREVER to find them! I hope they stick around! In the future I would like to see a peanut/coconut m&m or even an m&m with actual coconut inside….but they were yummy! smile

    Comment by Brooke on 9/20/09 at 6:01 am #
  89. i love coconut and chocolate.  i heard about the coconut m&ms; but i cannot find them anywhere!  if anyone in the twin cities knows where i can get some before their gone, i would greatly appreciate it.  thanks!

    Comment by stacy jones on 9/20/09 at 7:15 pm #
  90. also, i know this is about the coconut m&ms; but last year i tried the cherry m&ms; and loved those as well.  are they gone for good or is there some place we can order these flavors that dont last in regular stores?  thanks again!

    Comment by stacy on 9/20/09 at 7:19 pm #
  91. sorry, i dont blog often and i read most of the above posts but missed the one that said both the coconut and cherry m&ms; will be regular flavors in december.  i hope they are right!  good night everyone!

    Yes, Stacy, I can confirm the rumor that Coconut M&Ms; and the Wild Cherry M&Ms; are returning as permanent products. (I don’t know for certain if they’ll be seasonal or all year round.)

    Comment by Cybele on 9/20/09 at 7:34 pm #
  93. I am also obsessed with these… I got a pack in New York last month at some little convenience store and then when I got back here I couldn’t find them!  I should have picked up more!  I actually just paid like 30 bucks from some online website to order more…

    Comment by Mary on 9/25/09 at 6:13 pm #
  94. I found Coconut M&Ms; and instantly fell in love. I also got 2 co-workers hooked. We knew every store in the area that had them. Wait until I tell them that they are going to be a permanent addition-we’ve all been going through withdrawal!!

  97. Yeah I just found the coconut M&Ms; at this little grocery store in my neighbor hood, I would be willing to swap candy with someone if they had any good kinds (Espically the Japanese and there odd kit kat bars, I really want those) contact me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

  98. I was lucky enough to find these tasty treats in Memphis,TN while I was there on vacation in July. I told everyone about them but have not seen them anywhere since. I wish I had bought more. When will we see them in Massachusetts?????

  100. Where can I try these?

    Comment by Nadine Branson on 11/03/09 at 6:52 am #
  101. In July I found them while camping in Minnesota. I don’t like plan M&M’s but I love coconut so I bought one bag and really like them. Went back and bought three more. When I got home to Wisconsin found pound bags at Wal-Mart. So glad to hear they are bringing them back in December.

    Comment by Cindy on 11/04/09 at 8:45 am #
  102. I only had the opportunity to try these once a few months ago and they were wonderful! It’s sad that they aren’t sold anywhere right now :-(

    Comment by KK on 11/12/09 at 8:06 am #
  103. You can find them international on ebay for the 11.8oz bag. Use this search: coconut “m” 11*

  106. Looked for these for 2 weeks and found them yesterday at a Walgrens on sale for $.69 (along with the Cherry Limited edition). As coconut hounds, we were very excited to finally be able to try them. And were just as disappointed. Only a couple of the M&Ms; actually had any hint of coconut flavor (and then just barely), the rest tasted like regular M&Ms;. thank goodness we did not order the case online like we almost did. Wouldn’t buy them again. On the otherhand, the cherry ones were better than expected and had a cherry flavor consistently throughout all of the candies. Would buy those again

  108. OMG - These M&M’s are Heaven!!  My son saw them in a vending machine at school and brought a pack home to me.  I’ve been on a mission ever since to find a big bag….  so far, no luck, but he did find more small packs at Sheetz.  They’re hard to find in any size….
    I do hope Mars adds these to the list of regular products - they are wonderful!!

    S. Nelson - The Coconut M&Ms; have been added to Mars list of regular products (as was mentioned at the end of the post). The new “non-limited-edition” packages should be hitting stores now. I found them at Dollar Tree, Target and a local newssstand.

  115. I live in the Cincinnati, Ohio area and have been searching for these for my mother for weeks upon weeks. Can anyone help me out on where to find them?????

  116. For those of you looking for these, you can find a 24 pk box on amazon. Runs about $28 I believe. Kinda pricey, but until the hit the big stores it’ll have to do!!!

    Comment by Dawna on 3/10/10 at 9:29 am #

  120. OMG! I just found the Coconut M&M’s at a Seven 11 store. This is the first I have seen them. I was in love with the crispy ones, which I have been missing for years and now have a new fav.  smile

  122. These are pretty good, I prefer the new Almond Joy Pieces though! :D

    I even have a blog post dedicated to seeing which one people like more!

    If you haven’t tried either of them, get both! They’re both pretty tasty.

  123. I’m looking for the Mint M&Ms; that they have at Christmas (not the Green Limited ones), but…...for all you Coconut, um, Nuts, try the Costco Business Center (not a regular Costco, but your regular Costco card will get you in).  They have them in boxes of 24 bags for $13.62.

  124. This is now an everyday item and not Limited Edition any more.

    Steve - thanks for that confirmation. I did update the post last year to reflect that (and have made other announcements in other parts of the blog).

    Comment by Cybele on 6/17/10 at 9:58 am #
  126. Found some of these by accident on one of my travels a couple of months ago in some airport.  Haven’t been able to find them since.  I really liked them so I’ll keep searching.

  127. I live in Toronto,Canada but drive to Niagara Falls, Buffalo frequently, does anyone know if there are pretzel or coconut m&m’s sold in that area? Had them in Vegas, didn’t bring enough back, going through withdrawl!!!

  128. Peanut M&M’s have always been my Absolute Favorite Candy but These are such a DELICIOUS, SCRUMPTIOUS, FABULOUS treat.  Pop a bag into the freezer on a hot day and ... ahhhh ... It’s sooo good!!!

    Comment by Maureen on 8/17/10 at 7:50 pm #
  129. Did I see something about Dark Chocolate coffee beans?  Yummm… Sounds Wonderful!!!

    Comment by Maureen on 8/17/10 at 7:51 pm #
  130. It’s totally mislead on the part of M&M’s
    The picture on the bag leads the consumer into believing it’s actual coconut inside the candy. It happens to be coconut flavoring.

    I found the candy to have a slight minty flavoring rather than anything resembling coconut and chocolate.

    I pictured an actual coconut center just like the Mounds bar but was disappointed in biting into chocolate and coconut flavoring

    I’ll stick to the plain and peanut M&M’s

  131. I’m sooo.. addicted, to these coconut m&m’s,Just brought two more bags. Forgot I had two bags in desk, that I brought on Monday. It was also wonderful surprise,to know that I still have…

  132. I was on vacation in Boston when I went into convience store and saw the bag of coconut M&M’s. I had to buy a bag(or two). I can’t wait to see them inCanada. Fingers crossed.

  133. I haven’t been able to find any at any retailers around here… only see some on amazon, but I guess I feel weird ordering candy from Amazon…

    Comment by Ryan on 1/01/11 at 9:22 am #
  134. I love these! I prefer them to the Hershey’s Almond Joy Pieces. I felt these had the strong coconut flavor I was looking for and Hershey’s tasted very little like their counterpart.

    Comment by Lori on 1/30/11 at 12:03 pm #
  135. Just saw these at the store the other day and almost fell over because I’d never heard of it and got super excited.

    Comment by Ryan on 3/01/11 at 2:56 am #
  136. I saw these at our little grocery store when they were on sale. They are good but I wish they had a little more coconut flavor. It’s a nice addition to the M&M’s family. I’m still waiting to see a large bag of mixed M&M’s; plain, peanut and peanut butter. Heaven…

    Comment by Suzanne on 3/21/12 at 1:44 pm #
  137. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these candies! I first found them in Florida and now they are here in Kentucky. My local Wal Mart stopped carrying them, which has me bummed out, but I absolutely love these things and will buy a case next time I see them! I love the coconut flavor without worrying about picking little pieces of coconut out of my teeth! I love these things!

    Comment by Chasity on 3/23/12 at 11:59 am #
  138. Please put these on the shelves. Why did you ever take them off.

    Comment by Bill hunter on 1/31/16 at 10:38 am #
  139. I agree, please bring these back. I thought I might see them out for Easter this year but I have looked everywhere for the coconut M&Ms; and cannot find them. Our Winco used to carry them in the bulk department so we bought them by the pound there. Please consider bringing coconut M&Ms; back to our shelves.

  140. I agree, please bring these back. I thought I might see them out for Easter this year but I have looked everywhere for the coconut M&Ms; and cannot find them. Our Walmart used to carried them last year and have been waiting all year for them to come back. But they didn’t! Please consider bringing coconut M&M’s back to our shelves
