M&M’s will always hold a special place near and dear to my heart. Partially because they are super-delicious, and partially because my best bud and fellow CRR reviewer Dan calls them M’s and M’s. Combine that with pellow instead of pillow, prentzel instead of preztel, and Warshington instead of Washington, and you’ve got yourself a friendship built for a lifetime.
Cruising through my Big Blue Superstore over the weekend, I noticed a huge display that was not there on my previous trip. M&Ms are good, but what do we have here? Coffee Nut? Now, I now realize that there was a whole competition between this treat and others that couldn’t make the cut, but this was all new to me.
Uncontrollably, my brain began working through massive amounts of computations. The kind of computations that would put to shame those super computers that can beat Russian chess players. M&M’s equal good. Peanuts equal good. Coffee equals good. If my calculations were correct, and they always are; these things were going to be delicious.
It was a wild and crazy Saturday night so I popped on some borrowed HBOGo, cracked open a cherry cola, and ripped into some Coffee Nut M&M’s. Simply put: They were amazing. Different enough to be interesting. Same enough to be familiar. Size and shape were similar to Peanut M&M’s with different color varieties and variations. The flavor difference is a slight coffee flavor that seems to be created without any coffee. At least it’s not listed as an ingredient. Perhaps, this is a mystical “natural flavor.”
However they create the flavor, it works. Coffee Nut M&M’s brings a hint of coffee to party with all of the best qualities of the peanut version. Whoever created this confectionary delight needs a promotion.
