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.
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.
