What is it?
M&M’s Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches are a new alternative to the M&M’s Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwiches already on shelves. They feature chocolate cookies sprinkled with mini M&M’s and a chocolate ice cream middle.
How is it?
The chocolate ice cream reminded me of a Wendy’s Frosty and was quite creamy, despite its reduced-fat status. It was dense enough to hold up in the sandwich, but also airy enough to melt easily with each bite. The brownie-like chocolate cookies were perfectly chewy and a solid support for the ice cream filling, which is a challenge for some ice cream sandwiches. The goal is delicate firmness, not so hard as to break a tooth but not so soft that it falls apart after a minute of being out of the freezer.
The cookie had a nice butter note which lends them a homemade taste. Sadly, there were only a few M&M’s on each side of the cookie and they were overpowered by the chocolatey-ness of the cookie and ice cream. The candies were a nice addition, though not elemental as one might expect, so the parse spattering will likely be a disappointment for those choosing this product to get an M&M’s fix.
Is there anything else I need to know?
These look to be a permanent addition in the ice cream section soon. The vanilla version has a shortbread cookie and a vanilla ice cream middle.
Get the six pack if you like chocolate ice cream, ice cream sandwiches, and/or chocolate cookies, but one sandwich is probably plenty if you’re looking for some M&M’s action.
