Limited Edition Strawberried Peanut Butter and Coconut M&Ms

Kerry Saretsky 27 comments

"Other candies are actually junk food, while M&Ms are a superior gourmet experience." Strawberried Peanut Butter M&Ms If there are two things I love, it's peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and coconuts. Growing up, the only candy my mom was “OK" with me eating was M&Ms. I think it’s because she got to steal all the light brown ones. Remember those? Delightful. Her rule wasn't much of a rule anyway—they were always my favorites and still are. I'm a plain or peanut girl, sometimes dabbling in dark, but when I saw the Strawberried Peanut Butter and Coconut editions at the drug store, I actually yelped in delight and ran to the register. I loved them. Why? Because they're subtle. Isn't... More

Adam Kuban Post a comment

"The first thing to know about space food, it is the ambiance, it is the environment, it is not the food. These candies [peanut M&Ms] come in a piece of plastic, we cut them open, and suddenly everyone starts behaving like fish in a fish tank. That is fun food." —John Grusfeld, astronaut... More

Ed Levine 15 comments

Photograph from Lin Pernille ♥ Photography on Flickr The Huffington Post's Jane Levere posted about a panel discussion chocolatier Jacques Torres participated in at New York's 92nd Street Y. It turns out that, just like millions of people around the world, Torres has a keen appreciation for M&M's and Snickers bars. Surprisingly, when asked which chocolatiers he respected most, Torres mentioned not only Francois Pralus, a contemporary French chocolate-maker famous for his single-origin bars, but also Forrest Mars."If I can go back in time and work with someone, I would love to work with Mr. Mars. I love the character, he was a very interesting man. He created the two first candies in the world today, M&M's and the... More

Indiana Jones Crisp-Mint M&Ms: Meh

Adam Kuban 21 comments

Photographs taken by Gordon Mark. Oh, I think they'd melt in this guy's hands. Earlier today, I was all about the Indiana Jones coconut-blasted limited-edition Adventure Snickers bar. In the comments of that post, Squiggle hipped us to the Indy-themed mint-crisp limited-edition M&Ms. That first prompted cries of "What does mint have to do with Indiana Jones?" Beats me; is there mint in the rain forest? Then it prompted us to race out and get some. We grabbed a bag of the mint-crisp M&Ms and one of the Indy-themed peanut M&Ms. All I have to say is, I wouldn't fight the Nazi dude from Raiders for either of these so-called treasures. The crisp-mint M&Ms look sorta cool—with the different... More
