Limited Edition Peppermint M&M's

Target's Limited Edition Peppermint White Chocolate M&M's

Target has recently been coming out with limited edition festive M&M's for all of their holidays and calling them "exclusive Target flavors." The only problem with calling them that is that previously, around Halloween, they came out with the 'exclusive' White Chocolate Candy Corn M&M that was available, not only at Target stores, but at Walgreens and CVS. Granted, the pouches were single serving and not the large bags that Target mass produces of the candy, but none the less, it was not an exclusive Target item. 

One of the sole motivation I had towards wanting this product was that I had tried the Candy Corn White Chocolate M&M's that were previously mentioned, and I loved them. The second the Halloween candy went on sale i went to the nearest store selling them and bought all the leftovers they had. Seriously. I was addicted.

I was hoping that the Peppermint counterpart would be as delicious and amazing as the Candy Corn flavor had been. Though good, it wasn't nearly as satisfying for my sweet tooth.

The candy came in two colors, Red and White to go along with the festive colors that correspond with the Holiday Season. They size of the M&M's were significantly larger than that of the regular M&M's. Unnecessarily so, if you ask me. The candy was good, not amazing and not bad just average. The texture was like that of a regular M&M and the white chocolate, was combined with the peppermint flavor was virtually washed out by the stronger more relevant flavor. 

It was a good buy all in all, and I'm happy that i was able to satisfy my curiosity and try the M&M's. If they weren't so large, I would have probably attempted to make a chocolate holiday cookie with them and pawn them off onto friends.

Purchased at: Target
Score: 6.4/10
Would I buy them again? If they were on sale
Pros: It's festive, something to add to cookies, or put into a Holiday gift bag.
Cons: Would rather have an Andes Mint. Or just a Mint M&M....
