Battle of the M&Ms

M&Ms are a popular candy treat (not officially endorsed by or sponsors of The Daily Ping). Back when I was a kid, there were two kinds: peanut and chocolate. That was it. You wanted something else, you ate another candy.

But now, the M&Ms… they’re everything. Chocolate and peanut are joined by mint, crunchy, almond, and peanut butter – along with the Mini M&Ms. One candy is doing so much, I’m kind of worried about them. I’m half-anticipating a nut-and-caramel version next, followed by my favorite, pure sugar.

Your million dollar question today is: which do you enjoy the most?

For me, the classic chocolate remains my favorite. Peanut butter is good, quite good; crunchy is weird.

Regular chocolate are my favorite. I still have yet to try peanut butter. Any of that extra stuff is lame and a waste of resources.

Regular ones always and forever, although I am secretly addicted to the peanut butter ones....Peanut are...eh, ok, but avoid crunchy. They just taste nasty. Blah.

For the record, if they used a peanut butter which was slightly lighter in fat, I would make the permanent switch. Until then, it will have to be my occasional treat.

I like when M&M did those tracks with Royce the 5'9".

I love the plain chocolate but do like the ones with peanuts occasionally. I mostly love the m&m toys and shirts

Crispy M&Ms rule. But what's with all the wacky colors?...they're starting to look like Skittles!

Royce the 5'9" should get his own line of candy. Maybe some sort of Charlston Chew hybrid.

BTW, I dunno if anyone else feels like this (and I feel bad saying this, because I dont want people to think I am bashing the handicapped), but I am tired of seeing the M&M/Special Olympics commericial.

GOO DEEFENSE BUDDY!

Paul you are SO right! I've been thinking this for years. Snickers is becoming the same way! They have one now that's like snickers w/ almonds (and correct me if I'm wrong but...isn't that a Mars bar?). Jeebus. This candy thing is getting out of control.

Oh, and btw...Dave Walls...you're going to burn in hell. With gasoline underwear on. Tsk...:)

Probably peanut m&m's are my favourite. Followed by peanut butter, regular, then crispy. I can't stand the nut m&m's!.

Now about that record I was talking about in which the label accidentally calls the song "Somebody's Gotta Win, Somebody's Gotta Loose", why don't somebody make an edible copy of that same record, in the same flavor as mint M&M's?

Reese's Pieces still blow peanut butter M&Ms out of the water. Plain M&M's used to be my favorite, but now I like the peanut ones. You always get at least one bitter bastard for every fifteen peanut M&M's though. Blecccchhhhhh! They ought to sort the crap peanuts better.

Dulce de Leche m&ms. I was blessed to have a friend send me some. Good stuff. I like plain and peanut equally, if that's possible. Second place is almond m&ms in easter colors. I know rationally that they taste the same as the regular colors, but I still think they taste better as pastels.

ITs funny I just randomly came across this and I saw people talking about the mint m&ms. I absolutley love them and was obsessed with finding them a few years ago. I had eaten them so many times when growing up and one day 3 years ago wondered what happened to them. I searched everywhere and all sites and never found a word about them. I thought all hope was lost and they just werent made anymore. But i got a letter from the company after I had written them asking and they told me to keep my eyes peeled with christmas coming up and that soon I would see them again. I found out then they were only out at xmas. Well I stocked up each year enough to get me thrtough til the next xmas. Its now Sept 05 and I have one unopened brand new bag left. If someone wants it I'll send it. Goita have those mint m&ms.

Mint M&ms are out now in CVS and oither stores.

Mint M&Ms are often sold at select Target stores and CVS. Certainly in the Chicagoland area. You'd better hurry. The product is only ran one time a year, at Christmas (hence the Christmas colors). Therefore, when they sell out, you won't see them again until next Christmas. So stock up baby, stock up.

Of course you could always go to Las Vegas and go to the M&M store on the strip. I'm sure there's others, but that's the only one I personally know of...

I think they taste like crap!!

In the year 2000 the company (Mars) changed the recipe of M&Ms to using SKIM MILK,MILKFAT and they are disgusting!!!!! (It used to be regular milk with NO milkfat for 20yrs or more)

I havent eaten them in 5 yrs or so and have a quest going on to try and get the company to change the recipe back to pre-2000 standards!!!!!!!

Have you noticed a change in the way they taste,you dont really like them anymore??? Well,this is why........

Im going crazy trying to get the company to change it back to the original (I DONT KNOW WHY THESE STUPID COMPANIES MESS WITH SUCCESS)

Please Click here: http://tinyurl.com/dnnmm and send the company feedback about how you DO NOT LIKE THE NEW RECIPES (With skim milk,milkfat) and you want the older kind before 2000 back!!!!! (With reg. milk and NO milkfat)

PLEASE TRY AND HELP ME IN MY QUEST FOR GOOD CANDY COMING BACK......(The more people who send them email the better chance we have)

Thank you & God Bless you all :)
