  1. I bought some this weekend! They were interesting. The only thing “malted” I’ve ever had are Whoppers, so I can’t really say if they are really on point with flavor, but they tasted pretty good to me! 🙂

  2. these are a total scam. they’re just crispy m&m’s with a taste that’s vaguely reminiscent of malt. i mean, if you’re gonna put a centre in, make it a malt ball (whoppers style) dealio.

      1. hm… so a real let down huh?
        I mean i love crispy m&ms and i like maltesers, so both combined could’ve been a nice combination… but obviously mars blew it again… like with so many of it’s m&ms flavors… -.-

        Thanks for your reply sylvia! 🙂

        1. Well they’re not bad. I like crispy mms too, but these aren’t as good as the classic. More that they weren’t what I was hoping for and what they could have (or should have) been. Mars just phoned it in on this to get a quick buck.

          1. alright, now i got it ^^
            So, if you want crispy m&ms with a hint of artifical malt flavor (’cause you like crispy m&ms and don’t like “the strong” malt taste in whoppers or maltesers): go for it!
            Otherwise: Wait until Mars is getting their game straight and bring maltesers or at least their taste to the US. ^^
            (I mean i would’ve never be able to try them since i don’tlive in the US, but thank you so much for the amazing detailed information Sylvia! :))

        2. anytime, XDESTITUTEX. i can talk/type details for hours…. anyway, I can’t even say its artificial malt flavour. its a flavour. not bad, but not malt. closer to the US whoppers (if you’ve had those), maybe a bit of a chocolate Ovaltine flavour, but definitely not maltesers (which I just had for the first time last month and is my new gold standard of malt, literally ruining all other malt candy for me… hmmm, maybe that might have biased this review?) by any stretch. (you know, not that I’ve given it much though, that is).

  3. I had this same experience. As soon as I ate the first one I immediately knew I was eating a Crispy m&m. I even compared the ingredients between the “Malt Eggs” and the Crispy and they are EXACTLY THE SAME! So I don’t think it’s even a Crispy with more malt flavor, I think it’s a Crispy in sheep’s clothing. Or something.

    I already wrote to Mars and told them how disappointed I was in this product and eventually received a form letter that basically just said “Sorry you had a bad experience lol”.
