I have been not-so-patiently waiting to taste Caramel M&M’s since the company announced plans for the new flavor last fall.
Caramel M&M’s will be distributed to stores across the country sometime this month (Amazon.com already has them in stock), but until you get a chance to sample them, here is a sneak peek of the brand new Caramel M&M’s!
The bag that I sampled was the “Share Size.” The Caramel M&M’s are slightly larger than Peanut M&M’s. The caramel is more chewy than creamy, almost the texture of the caramel in Milk Duds.
I think if Plain M&M’s and Milk Duds got married, the result would be a lot like Caramel M&M’s. I like to toss Plain M&M’s into my popcorn at the movie theater, and I’m thinking these would be perfect upgrade for that because it would soften the caramel and chocolate, yet it would still be nicely enrobed in the crunchy M&M’s candy shell.
I’m excited to create some new recipes with them- imagine how delightful chocolate chip cookies would be with melty Caramel M&M’s tucked inside!
Have you tried Caramel M&M’s? What did you think of them?
