Birthday Cake M&Mís

mm_birthday_cake.jpgSome things canít be improved. Milk Chocolate (a.k.a. ďregularĒ) and Peanut M&Mís may be two of those things. I happen to think that Peanut M&Mís are slightly more delicious than the Milk Chocolate ones, but I love them both. Either way, they are about as close to candy perfection as you can get. Much like Pretzel M&Mís, Birthday Cake M&Mís donít even come close. First, they donít really have a ďcakeĒ flavor. Thereís some frosting flavor going on, but thatís about it. They certainly didnít remind me of birthday cake, only of eating Betty Crocker frosting with my finger out of one of those plastic tubs. Oh, come on. You know youíve done it too. The other thing wrong with Birthday Cake M&Mís is their size. They are a bit larger than regular M&Mís, with a bigger milk chocolate center. This throws off the ever-important ďmilk chocolate to candy coating ratio.Ē Buy a bag of Birthday Cake M&Mís if you must, just to give them a try. Iíll bet, however, that you probably wonít buy them again.

You're right about these. I had to buy a(small) bag because I am a chocoholic who loves cake and these sounded so promising. The partially eaten bag is still sitting in my candy jar, almost a month after I bought them. Not worth the calories.

I must be the only person that actually think they tasted like birthday cake. I really liked them and thought the size suited the flavor, weirdly. It is vaguely frosting-like but it is also cheap grocery store chocolate cake.
