One of my Facebook friends alerted me to a new seasonal M&M's flavor.
Now, I love pumpkin. It, along with apple cider, define fall. I love pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin waffles. The pumpkin donuts from Dunkin' Donuts are kind of meh to me, as are the apple cider donuts that people rave about. Give me warm pumpkin pie with a sidecar of cinnamon ice cream. Oh my. That's pretty close to heaven there.
But Pumpkin Spice M&M's? Well, they were on sale at Target so I decided to give them a try.
Black, orange and forest green. I suppose in a candy dish this might be an appealing color combination. Coming out of the bag, not so much.
And the taste? I'm not sure whose idea it was to create this but they should never be allowed to suggest flavors again. Initially, there was a flavor of pumpkin. Now, after having about half the bag over a week's time, I'm not finding them appealing at all. I would like to have weighed in on this attempt before they decided this was a good idea.
Not every season or holiday needs a special flavor. Stick to what you do best, chocolate.
In other words, I can't recommend these at all and I dumped the last quarter of the bag on the deck table because I couldn't stomach them anymore. The raccoons liked them.
