Pecan Pie M&M's: The Money Shot

Pecan Pie M&M’s: The Money Shot



Ah, Pecan Pie M&M’s. Something I found back in October and forgot that I had a bag lying around somewhere. While pushing around bags of chips, you were uncovered! Sorry about neglecting you for….six months.

I opened the bag and sniffed – distinct aromas of brown sugar, a bit of roasted pecan smell, very much like the SMELL of pecan pie. The problem with M&Ms is: can that flavor transfer to the chocolate itself? Chomping on a few of these, I was very surprised – the first flavor WAS evocative of pecan pie! Brown sugary flavor on the shell, and the roasted pecan flavor carried over, although it was subtle. The chocolate flavor was very powerful, and these were sweet sweet sweet. These clearly didn’t TASTE like actual pecan pie, per se, but were more of a nod to the sugary innards that comprise a pecan pie. In that sense, these were WAAAAAY more successful than previous attempts M&Ms had at seasonal flavors.

The more I ate, the less pecan pie flavor I got, per usual. BUT, these didn’t taste bad at all, and I liked the lean towards brown sugar. I enjoyed these a lot. I’m sorry I hadn’t been eating them for all these months!

    I just recently tried the Malt M & M’s one….they are pretty good but not as good as whoppers. Have you seen the Milano’s with banana flavor?

  3. Sarah says:

    They have banana flavored twinkies too you should do banana flavored food.

    When I tried these the first time, I loved them! They were sweet and sugary and just overall “good.” I waited like, five minutes, grabbed another handful, tossed a few in my mouth and immediately went, “Nope. Nope. Nope.” It tasted like munching on a Bath and Body Works candle. Now I can’t eat them at all. Gross.
