The verdict is in.
Don’t race to invest in a bag of Pumpkin Spice M&Ms.
The M&M fairy brought me a bag and left it on my desk, so I left it out for public consumption. They didn’t get a lot of raves. One suggestion was to ditch the pumpkin spice flavor and go for carrot cake instead.
I think the pumpkin spice M&Ms taste exactly like the regular M&Ms.
I’ll eat a shoe if it’s covered in sugar, so I’m not the most discriminating voice on the matter of confections. That said, the pumpkin spice and chocolate combo doesn’t really work for me. Cinnamon, allspice and the like serve a wholly different purpose than straightforward chocolate, and their marriage in these M&Ms seems forced and tastes odd.
So, there you have it. The only really good thing about speciality M&Ms (like the white chocolate at Easter)? They’re bigger than usual.
