Limited Edition Strawberried Peanut Butter M&M's

strawberriedpb2.jpgThese new M&M's were originally released as a limited edition tie-in to the new Transformers movie. When I first saw them, I thought that concept was interesting, but never felt the urge to try them. Recently, I saw these at the store in their (non-licensed) red and brown striped packaging and finally decided to give them a shot. I love peanut butter and I like strawberries, but I usually end up getting disappointed by new candy flavors. Even regular peanut butter M&M's don't taste as good to me as I think that they should. As such, I was ready for a truly mediocre candy experience. I am happy to report that I was wrong. M&M's has hit a home run with their new candy. The peanut butter flavor is sweet and creamy and the strawberry flavor actually tastes like real strawberries. This combination works in a good way. It's hard to say where Mars got the inspiration for this new mix, but they're so good, that you probably won't worry about it too much. If you're yearning for something different when you're out candy shopping, these great new M&M's won't disappoint.

Phoood rating: Outstanding!

Okay, now I can't believe you guys actually like this crap. The first time I tried it, it had the worst flavor combination I ever tried. Don't waste your money on this crappy candy.

Look, I've had straberry jelly with peanut butter in sandwiches, but the candy doesn't really taste all that great as you would expect it to be! It's just too sweet.

These things are great. Just the right amount of Strawberry & Peanut Butter. I don't know why people wouldn't like these. Bad childhood I guess. Strawberry & Peanut Butter is great together no matter how you slice it.
