M&M's Pretzel [USA] (CyberCandy)



The first thing that caught my eye on the packet of the M&Ms was in the bottom left hand corner, were it said: 150 Calories Per Pack. I thought that was pretty impressively low, especially for a product that doesn’t even seem to be claiming to be ‘healthier’ on the packaging.
I opened up the bag and have to admit that there wasn’t that many M&Ms inside it, the picture shows the full amount, and yes there are surprisingly large number of blue ones!
Each chocolate consists of a ball of pretzel, surrounded by milk chocolate and covered in the usual M&Ms crunchy shell.
The pretzel flavour tastes like a ball of savoury biscuit, with a light salty edge. I love the mix of salt and chocolate, so these were a complete win for me. Writing this sort of blog I rarely re-purchase goodies as I’m always after something new to try. It has to be said I popped back and picked up another four bags for the store cupboard, for emergencies you understand.
I just loved the crunchy texture and the combination of savoury and sweet, it is just a really moreish M&M variety. I will cross my fingers that it comes out on release in the UK, but until then I will be a regular at the import stores. Yum!

Oh ever since I saw a review of these on Candyblog I wanted to try them! They should really release thos in the UK (as a permanent Christams gift to the lovers of sweet/salty things) instead of just selling special Christmas coloured standard peanut ones...That's not very creative *pouts*

They sound really nice!

Just spotted that they sell them on amazon.co.uk too!!!

I know what you mean about the UK editions being just regular products re-packaged... so wish we got more Limited Editions over here.

Ah yes, you're right! Lots of other cool flavours too. Unfortuntely each sold by a different seller.... So shipping costs for a bit of chocolate would be insane. :-( Checked cybercandy, and there a lot of the flavours are sold out. :( They have the Pretzel ones, but I can't really justify the costs of pp for a few M&Ms. Might make a bigger pruchse at some other time.

I find the best thing on amazon is to find a seller that is selling the item you want - then click their name, and click the link through to their storefront. See what else you can get, and if there are a few items it makes the p&p more justifiable.
All the prices of import choccies are high, and I know I shouldn't, but I just have problems resisting... ;-)
Is there a branch of CyberCandy near you? At least that way you avoid the P&P? There are branches in London, Birmingham and Brighton.

Anne said...

No none near me. But I didn't know about there being one in London! Guess that's another place I will have to put on my list for shopping when visiting a friend in London next year. :-)

Thanks!

No probs - their shop is in Covent Garden, so it is a nice place to visit anyway.

Oh I've been wondering what the blue packet in the tv ad for ages was.

The blue packet in the UK are 'Crispy' which is a puffed rice filling, but the blue American packs are the 'Pretzel' ones. The crispy ones were replaced by pretzel ones the States, but I still think we are unlikely to find them on general release in the UK any time soon.
