I’ve seen them at Target as well. I swear I saw them for 2.99 at one point though. Maybe it was a weekly sale or something. I tried the purple box(mind blanking on the actual flavor name), and it wasn’t bad! I was confused by the lack of crunch that I’m used to when biting into an m&m;, but the “shell” was too pretty to pass up! I think it’s the perfect combination of milk/dark/white chocolate. I really want to try the mint ones next, but the price is slightly steering me away.
I wasn’t expecting to see them anywhere, but I’ve already seen them at a few local (east coast) supermarkets (Genuardi’s and Acme, which is owned by Albertson’s). Both had them on sale for $3.99. That is quite expensive for a small box of chocolates of that variety! I mean, I would pay that for a comparable box of Maltesers, but not M&Ms;!
we found these at giant eagle, a grocery chain in pittsburgh, for $4.29. the mint ones were yummy, i thought. we also got the target deal on the triple chocolate ones. they were ok. hubby HATES coffee, or i would have gotten the mocha also. cybele had a nice review of those.
