Pop-Secret Sweet 'n Crunchy

If you ever go to prison, might I suggest you call yourself Sweet ‘n Crunchy, and explain your name like this, “If you’re nice to me, I’ll be sweet to you, but if you cross me, I’ll crunch all the bones in your face.” (Spotted by Julia at Giant Eagle.)

Mango AND pineapple? It’s as if I walked into the farmer’s market up the street here on this rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. (Spotted by Marc at Wegmans.)

      1. Yup, these are at Target stores right now. I suggest calling before you head out to buy them. Some sores are already sold out and others are waiting a week or two before putting them out on the floors.

  1. I just tried the Pumpkin Spice M&Ms. They’re milk chocolate, and taste more like cinnamon/spice than have any pumpkin flavor. I think they could’ve gotten more pumpkin flavor into a white chocolate M&M. As it is, they’re not terrible (chocolate and cinnamon work together well) – just underwhelming in terms of pumpkin.

    1. They aren’t supposed to taste like pumpkin. It isn’t pumpkin M&Ms but pumpkin SPICE. The spices you put in pumpkin pie. I can’t wait to try them.

      1. Rita, like you I had high hopes for the pumpkin spices…but I was really disappointed.

        The milk chocolate really overpowers the spice mixture, and some of my friends didn’t even notice that these were a specialty flavor. I feel like a white chocolate base would have been much better. I honestly don’t know what Mar’s was thinking when they made these milk chocolate.

  2. Found the Pumpkin Spice M&Ms at Target. I think they taste grossly artificial, like a cheap decorative candle. Too bad, cuz the carrot cake M&Ms for Easter were incredible!
