The holidays shouldn’t be the reason you celebrate the variety of flavors of M&M’s that are currently available. Rather, we should celebrate classic candies like the iconic M&M’s all the time.
As far as the holiday season goes, M&M’s come in handy. Especially when you’re baking holiday cookies and unique desserts for friends and family. There’s always one person who shows up at our holiday office party with cookies or brownies loaded with the standard chocolate M&M’s. However, that can be boring!
Rather than using the same old red-and-yellows, I have a field day creating all kinds of new confections using the variety of flavors released over the years. Imagine what I can make with the mint chocolate M&M’s with its milk chocolate and vibrant peppermint flavors. Or, what about white chocolate vanilla toasty M&M’s? These delights are dressed up in brown, white, and vanilla to celebrate the holiday season, as described on the official M&M’s website.
If you Google, “How many flavors of M&M’s are there?” The number that shows up most is 13, unless you do a lot of digging.
13 is probably the number of varieties available at your local retailers such as Walmart and your average grocery or drug store.
I found the website, Taquitos.net, and they display 61 different varieties , and not just in regular candy form. That’s insane!
They also showcase a bounty of brands of other favorite snacks! These have all kinds of wacky flavors you’ve probably never heard of unless you’re a complete snack and candy fanatic.
The website features favorite chip brands, Hostess Ding Dongs, Bagel Chips, breakfast snacks, and a boatload more.
One of the most enticing finds was Reese’s Elvis Peanut Butter & Banana Creme Collector Edition. Running a close second, Snyder’s of Hanover Cheeseburger Pretzel Pieces.
Let’s take a look at my favorite M&M’s choices, and the taste test profiles provided by the website. I may have to buy a case of these bad boys, I can always give them as gifts.
