This year M&M’s introduced Pretzel M&M’s. Although most people wouldn’t think that chocolate goes with pretzels (especially because they are salty), I really thought it was a good idea. The reason for this is because I had chocolate covered pretzels a long time ago and they tasted really good. For some reason chocolate pairs nicely with salt, because they accentuate the flavor of each other.
I’ve also found that as I’ve gotten older I have started to like many foods that I didn’t like as a child, such as mint and dark chocolate. But I must say M&M’s hit the jackpot with this new candy. To begin with, I couldn’t find them anywhere because they were sold out everywhere I looked. Luckily I did find a store that had some left and I was able to buy a few bags. The candies themselves look like any other M&M’s candy because they are covered in those bright colors, and are round. As mentioned before, although the pretzel is salty, it being covered in chocolate and candy really work together to make this a tasty treat. Since the pretzel is also hard, it gives you a nice crunch every time you bite into it. I love this new candy and can’t wait to have it again.
