REVIEW: M&M’s White Cheesecake

M&M's White Cheesecake

I’m not in the business of wasting anyone’s time. Therefore, I’m literally going to tell you right away my favorite thing about the new White Cheesecake flavor of M&M’s: The size.

These puppies are not your average M&M. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the bag and found they were about two times the size of the regular chocolate candy. Much more substantial, and in my opinion, a better way to portion control. (If you can keep your hand out of the M&M bowl without mindless munching, please call me because you’re going to need to teach me your ways.) It’s like you’re getting more bang for your buck.

Moving on to flavor: When I took my first bite, there was no evidence of cheesecake at all. What I got was a nice flavor of white chocolate. Now here’s the thing…I LOVE white chocolate. It’s underrated. So I enjoyed the taste and thus gave a 7 rating. But if you came for the cheesecake, I can see why you’d be disappointed. I kept eating them and eating them and eating them to see if the cheesecake came through after a while, but to no avail.

What you get is a nice white chocolate that’s just the perfect amount of sweetness. I probably could have polished off most of the bag in one sitting without feeling sickeningly sweet. (Side note: I’m thinking an interesting experiment would be to freeze these babies since cheesecake is typically refrigerated, I wonder if the coolness would bring out the taste? If anyone tries this, let me know.)

Back on track: These are definitely Valentine’s Day M&M’s, as evidenced by the hearts on the bag and the color of the candy. You’ll find light pink, white, and something I can only describe as skin tone. Or it’s probably supposed to be cheesecake-colored. Your preference! The other thing to note that I consider a positive was that the M&M coating was nice and thick.

All in all, these were a win in my book because I liked the “white chocolate” spin on M&M’s. If you’re cool with eating a flesh-colored candy, enjoy my friends.

  1. You’ve got to be kidding right? Have you never had any of the 30 limited edition m and ms released in the past 5 years? They are all this exact size and I would say at least 70% are white chocolate based flavors. This is a total failure flavor. These are plain white chocolate flavored . Is that all it takes to impress you? Pathetic review, I know to skip your reviews anytime I see them come up from now on.

    1. I was just being honest about how I felt about the flavor. I really like white chocolate so I liked them. But if people are looking for the white cheesecake, they might not find that the case!

  2. Jeez, tough crowd. Good review Heather. This is a flavor I might have been interested in, but if the predominant flavor is white chocolate I think I’ll pass.

  3. This is a pretty accurate review. If you like white chocolate, you’ll love these because that’s the most dominant flavor. Although, me personally, I could taste a faint hint of cheesecake flavor if I ate a bunch of them in one sitting. It’s not much though and I’m not entirely sure that I just didn’t imagine it since I was really trying to figure out if it was there or not
