Taste Test USA #2 - Peanut Butter m&m's

More m&m's...

This time, Peanut Butter m&m's.

Seems that Americans really love their peanut butter and their chocolate, and more often than not, they have them both at the same time...

And so, I guess, it made sense that m&m's should come in a peanut butter version in the USA. And naturally, (being the thorough investigator that I am!) I had to try them too!

The actual candy (notice my USA terminology there) looked much like a normal m&m. Except, these little sweeties had been into the steroids and had really buffed up. Almost muscular in appearance!

As for taste, there was no mistaking it. Definitely peanut butter. Even to the extent that they were just a bit claggy and sticky on the top of the mouth. I liked them, but I can't say I luuurved them... and my Mum (who hates peanut butter) thought they were palatable.

Cinta: 5/10
Shirl (Mum): 3/10 (for the chocolate, not the peanut butter!)
Buy again? Probably not (though I would if I was chocolate desperate!)

I don't like or eat a lot of peanut butter but I LOVE the taste of the peanut butter M&Ms. I'm not sure what it is about them.. I like them more than the regular ones.


Have some Junior Mints while you're there. They're yummy!

I'm a big peanut butter fan and I love those m&m's. Personally, I like trying out all the different kinds of Hershey Kisses. The holiday ones are my favorite. You should try them. :)
