Quick! What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think “Halloween“?
Some of you probably said pumpkins or candy or costumes, but the majority of you probably just said “candy corn.” No other candy is quite as synonymous with a holiday as candy corn is with Halloween. Chocolate bunnies with Easter may be close, but you just can’t compare it to classic candy corn. It is festive and iconic, standing the test of time as Halloween’s most symbolic sweet.
The funny thing about candy corn is that, whether or not everyone loves it, everyone eats it. It’s just something you do at Halloween time. However, when you eat it year after year, you might start looking for new ways to consume said candy corn. Last year, they came out with candy corn Hershey Kisses, which were pretty tasty. This year, they have come out with something even better: Candy Corn White Chocolate M&M’s.
I first saw these candy corn cuties on Cookin’ Cowgirl’s blog. I knew I had to try ‘em! Let me tell you, these festive M&M’s are not for the faint-at-sweet-tooth. Like regular candy corn, they are super sweet, but not in a bad way. I personally love all things sweet! They don’t taste exactly like real candy corn, but they are reminiscent of it. The M&M’s are festively adorned with the classic candy corn color trio: yellow, white, and orange. Their crunchy, colorful shell gives way to a smooth and sweet filling. The flavor is a combination of white chocolate, candy corn, and something sort of caramel-esque. In fact, it tastes an awful lot like those candy corn Hershey Kisses I mentioned!
If you’re longing for a new twist on a classic Halloween treat, then fill your candy dish with these Candy Corn M&M’s. They’re tasty and addicting little buggers, and I’m obsessed!
