I’ve always enjoyed my fair share of M&Ms. Over the last 20 years, Mars Inc. has invented a large variety of these “colorful, button shaped” candies. One of the many bold ingredients they incorporated into the chocolates is peanut butter – hence the birth of peanut butter M&Ms.
Normally I’d be the first one to admit this combo is fantastic, as both sweets are at the top of my list. However, I was a little bit disappointed. While the m&m’s taste as good as ever, they are double packed with an overwhelming amount of peanut butter. With an 80 to 20 ratio, you have to be COMMITTED to that peanut butter. And if you are – throw away your spoons and your half-eaten PB jars, because these candies will definitely provide you with more satisfaction. With a 38 oz Gusset Bag at your bedside, your set for at least a week or a two. Just don’t forget to eat your dinner.
Marc Inc, however, continues to be one of the leading candy companies in the country. Good news – if a particular M&M brand doesn’t suit your taste, there are plenty of others just waiting to be eaten. Guaranteed one of their products will make your mouth water, just the way a candy should.
