A few years ago, M&M came out with a limited edition duche de leche flavor. Somehow, I missed them and have regretted it ever since. When I heard about the coconut M&M’s, I knew I would not make the same mistake twice. Luckily, they were easy to hunt down, as they were at the drugstore right next door.
So, how were they? I was underwhelmed. There is a cloying fake coconut perfume-y aftertaste. Several of my co-workers hated them “It tastes like suntan lotion!” although others really liked it, “It’s like a mounds bar with a hard center,” One complained that the inside was brown (chocolate) and should really be white (like a coconut). I agreed; or at least they should have coconut flakes in there, but coconut isn’t even on the ingredient list.
M&M: Bring back the duche de leche edition!!
