White Chocolate Peppermint M&M’s
I’m going to start off by saying I’m not extremely excited about this one. I know it’s, hopefully, not going to be terrible. There is one other review that I’m dreading far much more than this one. But we’ll save that for another day!
White Chocolate Peppermint M&M’s. See, it’s not going to be too bad. It’s just, I’m really not a big white chocolate fan(though I will DEVOUR white chocolate Kit-Kats like there’s no tomorrow!) and I’m not overly crazy for peppermint either. I mean, it’s okay. I’ll eat a candy cane if it’s sitting in front of me, though I’d much prefer a cherry or spearmint one. I’ll only eat peppermint flavored breath mints if that’s my only option. I hate peppermint gum. I absolutely despise using peppermint flavored toothpastes. Have I talked about my hatred for toothpaste flavors before? If so, I’m sorry, but it seems to fit. Here’s my issue. I understand that having flavors like “Refreshing Mint” or “Arctic Glacier Bliss” or “Invigorating Mint” or whatever, having those is a better marketing tactic probably sell better. They just sound more appealing. What sucks though, is for people, like me, who HATE certain mint flavors. Why can’t we just have “Spearmint”, “Peppermint”, “Wintergreen”, or even like, “Cool Refreshing Peppermint”, something that actually TELLS you what kind of mint it is. I’ve tried pawning off so many tubes of toothpaste because they end up being a peppermint flavor. I hate it so much for two reason. One, well I just hate peppermint and two, because I feel like I’m brushing my teeth with a candy cane! No me gusta. Though, I have found a few that are wintergreen(sassy mountain chill freezing rain mint, I think is what the name on the package was. I think..) which reminds me of the Wint-O-Green Lifesavers, so I guess technically my argument for not liking to brush my teeth with something that tastes like candy is invalid. Oh well.
So yeah, white chocolate peppermint! This should be, great! I did man up and try the Candy Corn M&M’s finally this year. I wasn’t overly thrilled, but they weren’t as bad as I was expecting. So, let’s see how this goes!
WAIT! Okay, before I open it, I just have to say… how the heck did Red’s eyebrows pop off of his forehead and appear on his hat? How does that work? This just doesn’t make sense. Red, you crazy, crazy guy. You look drunk. That’s the last time we let you listen to LMFAO. Go home Red. You need to rethink your life choices.
Well, the bag smells like toothpaste and, wait for it… waaaait for it….. white chocolate. *gasp*. Crazy, right?! *breathes* Okay, now that I’m over that surprise..
So these, obviously, come in two colors; red and white. Each have a letter stamped on them in gray ink. It’s so strange, some of them have m’s on them, some of E’s, and some w’s. I wonder what that means.. Am I funny yet? No? A little bit? You’re right, that was really lame. Sorry! Not. Since this hasn’t been very professional or on topic at all, let me throw in something else on my mind. Every time I see M&M’s, I think of that scene in Superbad, where the woman working at the liquor store is trying to give the cops a description of the robber. “He looked like Eminem, okay?!” “Oh, so he was round! *draws a picture of an M&M*”.. and eventually they get the description that he was an African Jew wearing a hoodie. If none of this makes sense, you need to go watch it on youtube. Actually, watch the whole movie. Seriously, what’s wrong with you if you haven’t? Oh, because it’s really stupid? Yes, you’re right, it is. I love it.
Okay okay okay. Holy mint lingering in my mouth. So the outer shell feels a bit cool on the tongue, as does the white chocolate center. The mint flavor is really strong. Like toothpaste! If you don’t try to devour it in a second, you can taste the sweet, creamy white chocolate. Try hard though! The mint pretty much takes over! Which is fine for me because I’d rather have the mint anyway. Mint M&M’s are one of my favorites. I miss when they were the size of the original M&M’s though instead of the jumbo size, like these ones. They’re almost too overwhelming when they’re jumbo. The smaller ones were just right!
These really remind me of Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses. Which I never wanted to try, but became amused by letting it melt away and have a bunch of little candy cane pieces left in the end. I used to eat these constantly when I worked at a photo lab. I tried a bag a few years ago and realized I was still really, really sick of them. So aside from the fact that I’m really not a fan of white chocolate or peppermint, I think I don’t really care for these also because they taste so much like those Kisses.
Really, these aren’t bad though! Anyone who actually likes white chocolate and peppermint would probably really like these. Just, for my taste, can’t say I’ll really eat much more of this bag. Plus, Red on the front is still creeping me out a bit.
