Just in time for me to have eaten all the leftover Halloween candy in New York City, comes an announcement from the M&M Bureau of Sugar Dreams: there now exists a new hot cocoa-flavored M&M, complete with marshmallow-flavored insides. What do these taste like? I do not know, but I must.
According to Good Housekeeping, the new M&Ms—hocked by the ever-disturbingly sexy green lady M&M—have a hot cocoa-flavored milk chocolate shell, but inside there’s white chocolate that’s supposed to taste like marshmallow. M&Ms have burned me before (#neverforget CARROT CAKE M&Ms, those sick bastards), but at least marshmallow has a place in the candy canon, so I will wait to pass judgment until after I murder one of these button-shaped creatures with my cavity-ridden teeth. I eat a lot of candy, I have no dental insurance, date me!
Apparently, these M&Ms are exclusively available at Target, which is good news if you happen to need to purchase literally anything else on Planet Earth, alongside a pack of probably disgusting but well-meaning chocolate. Go to Target, ride the escalator, ponder the green M&M’s extraterrestrial ability to have her eyebrows imprint on her winter hat, buy five packs, go home, build a fire, and let the good times roll. Or, you can just buy marshmallows and make regular hot cocoa, which will probably taste better anyway.
