You know by now, we can't have seasonal products without seasonal M&M's. For the last few years, M&M's have come second only to Oreo cookies in the battle for most-unique-flavors supremacy. Whether it's Red Velvet, Pumpkin Spice, Carrot Cake, or Gingerbread, there's no doubt M&M's do their fair share of getting involved and enhancing the season. Unlike some of you, I never knock a company for taking advantage of the system and using my curiosity for their profit. In fact, I welcome it. I love these new, sometimes oddball, off-the-wall flavors and always go out of my way to review and appreciate them. In today's case, there's nothing too out of the ordinary and the flavor is probably long overdue. Falling in line with Fall 2014, M&M's have gone apple picking!
I've reviewed many different M&M flavors and, for the most part, they all share the same thing in common. No matter how hard they try to be anything other than chocolate, they always taste like chocolate. For a few, there's an underwhelming hint or weird aftertaste, but I usually can't even tell there's a difference. However, in this case, there's clearly an apple flavor present and it's kicked up a notch or two to my liking. The chocolate is good and that goes without saying, but the layer of Candy Apple that comes with it is really good. It's sweet and reminds me of the Green Apple Jolly Rancher. I think that's a poor example because now you may be thinking extreme or sour, but I'm talking more about the diluted aftertaste than anything else. It's hard to describe, but they're better than the M&M's I'm used to reviewing. They're perfect for Fall, maybe just as good for Winter, and I'm happy to have picked them up. For the first time since I started this blog, this may very well be the bag that gets finished. About time.
