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.

10 thoughts to “REVIEW: M&M’s White Cheesecake”
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.
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!
Dude. Settle down. Sounds like you’re going to stroke out here. It’s an M&M.
Chill back jack .. and stick your hand in that bag of creamy white chocolate goodness 🙂
Maybe you guys need your taste buds checked. I tasted a cheesecake flavor….Not just plain white chocolate.
Are the M&M’s White Cheesecake Limited Time or is this a standard product?
I wonder if they went with a crispy M&M route maybe the cheesecake flavor would be better
“Flesh tone” seems kind of wrong in 2017, don’t you think? :/
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.
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
