Blasphemy! M&M’s Introduces Raspberry Flavor

I don’t know if that’s a hand-basket, but we are all going to Hell.

M&M with peanuts is a standard. It’s not appropriate, but certainly acceptable if for no other reason than they have been around a long time. Tradition and heritage counts.

Seems that dark chocolate even survived the grueling test of the marketplace.

M&M’S(R) first added its signature fun twist to the traditionally serious dark chocolate category with a limited edition of M&M’S(R) Dark Chocolate Candies and M&M’S(R) Dark Chocolate Peanut Candies in April 2005. …consumers clamored for more. In response, M&M’S(R) permanently introduced M&M’S(R) Dark Chocolate Candies last August and is now bringing back M&M’S(R) Dark Chocolate Peanut Candies, available nationwide on a permanent basis.

So far I haven’t noticed the dark chocolate infringing on the shelf space for the real M & M’s. Mini’s are hard to find, and that’s fine. Large don’t get much shelf space either. When things change regarding these interlopers, you will know about it.

BUT- and this is huge. Who in H – E – double hockey sticks decided raspberry flavored milk chocolate should be inside the delicious candy coated shell?

M&M’S(R) Razzberry Chocolate Candies, which offer the sweet flavor of raspberries as a delightful complement to the classic M&M’S(R) milk chocolate taste.

Here’s the poor schlub that has to make this sound like a good thing.

Fortunately, the geniuses on at Mars have designated a “season” of six weeks, peaking in September and October.

I hope they don’t show up on shelves in this area. I will not be responsible for my actions.

Blasphemy! M&M’s Introduces Raspberry Flavor — 21 Comments

  1. I am a huge m and m’s fan but only eat the dark chocolate kind because they’re good for you. I keep them in the fridge so its a nice cool treat on a hot summer day. and I let them melt in my mouth…I don’t chew them.

    the raspberry flavor won’t last long. the traditional M and M’s have staying power.

    great post!!!!

    • the raspberry m&m’s have a great summer flavor to them and they are delicious. I love them and can’t wait to get more of them. thank you M&M’s for trying something new.

  2. I like your attitude. I don’t know how you keep from crunching them, but you have a well reasoned plan and that’s good.
    Thanks!

  3. I don’t like raspberry flavored anything – tea, candy, lipgloss, etc. – so I wouldn’t be partaking regardless, but the thought of raspberry M&M’s is sacreligious and just plain wrong. What is this world coming to? Handbasket, indeed!

  4. I have a little ceramic bowl that is perfect for a serving of M and M’s. Well today it6 slipped from my hands and came crashing down on the tile floor sending the M and M’s everywhere. I kept the dogs away then got out the vaccum cleaner and sucked them up. What a waste of good,dark chocolate. I’m so mad at myself for doing that!!!! I feel better now though because I got a plastic container to keep them in.

  5. You vacuumed them? You killed them? BTW: having M&M’s from a plastic bowl is like drinking wine from a paper cup.

  6. I love raspberry and chocolate together but it’s has to be dark chocolate for it to really taste GOOD. I was at my local Publix supermarket today and they had a display for them and they were all sold out. For those who are not agreeable to this new flavor dont worry as it did say “limited edition” which means it will only be out for a few months then retired unless of course it does GREAT which I doubt but you never know, look at the kit kat white chocolate yuck it’s still around.

  7. Hello Person! Don’t know that I’ve had an actual person visit before.
    Welcome. You are welcome to stay as long as you don’t get cute with the dark chocolate or raspberry M&M’s. Originals only allowed here.

  8. A lady I work with had a couple bags of the raspberry m&ms because her husband works for the research dept. They were DELICIOUS!!!!! I think they should introduce more flavors like coffee, cocoanut, hazelnut. Why not?????? If you want the plain m&m, go for it. But variety is the spice of life.

  9. I LOVE THE RASPBERRY M&MS CANT FIND THEM IN CT. OR MA. HELP!!!!!! ALSO LOVE THE BIG ONES ..YOU SHOULD HAVE THEM IN COLOR FOR THE HOLIDAYS THANK YOU

  10. DOESN’T ANYONE LIKE THE RASPBERRY M&MS??????. HOW ABOUT MAKING LARGE M&Ms THEY MAKE SUCH A NICE SHOW ON DISPLAY IN YOUR HOME PEOPLE LOVE TO SEE AND EAT THEM…HELP!!!!!!!

  11. HI KATHRYN KELLER. WHY IS IT WE CANT GET ANY ANSWERS????I WANT THE RASPBERRY M&Ms ALSO WHATS THE BIG DEAL????

  12. Interesting blog, my friend! I have an interest in real estate and affordable housing options and I am always on the lookout for new and interesting sites and postings about new styles and designs of transportable homes and in particular relocatable homes for sale… which is what led me here. At any rate i just wanted to check in as I certainly plan on visiting again! Cheers!

  13. The Rasp. M&Ms have popped up here in a CVS in Jersey and they are pretty good but the cherry ones are better. Glad they are keeping the cherry ones available for Valentines day. That makes it a 4 month run for those.

    Frankly, the more flavors the better…unless it’s those strawberry peanut butter ones they had a few years back. Yikes they were bad!
