Review: Limited Edition Strawberry Nut M&M’s & Do You Care About the Kentucky Derby Tomorrow?
JFG Nation, it completely passed over me that the Kentucky Derby was tomorrow? Huh? I’ve been up for the past nine nights watching non-stop playoff basketball and hockey and I’m delirious. There’s a horse race tomorrow?
I love the Derby but there’s been absolutely no hype. At least not in my world. Apparently it’s because there are 20 horses this year, all of them are green, and there’s no overwhelming favorite like in years past. I’ll still watch he fastest two minutes in sports, but if I hadn’t seen a random commercial, I never would have known it was even happening.
Will you be watching the Derby tomorrow? Do you even care? Let me know in the comments below.
Today’s junk food: Limited Edition Strawberry Nut M&M’s!!
Strawberry M&M’s? These aren’t that new but I hadn’t seen them until now. Honey Nut, Chili Nut, Coffee Nut, and now Strawberry Nut? I want to see Habanero Nut, Wasabi Nut, and Turkey Nut next.
DO THESE TASTE GOOD? Yes.
WHY OR WHY NOT? There is an initial fruity taste that is clearly embedded in the candy shell. Sort of reminds me of Fruity Pebbles or Crunchberries; it reminded the JFGal of Froot Loops. The initial strawberry fruitiness is noticeable but quickly fades as the flavor of a general peanut M&M emerges.
I liked these because there wasn’t anything offensive – the fruit flavor was so fleeting it didn’t have time to offend. When I tried to micro-analyze that initial taste, I GUESS I could get the tiny flavor of PB&J – that millisecond taste when the jelly and the PB mixes together? I got a little of that here.
All in all, these were fine. I liked them.
ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW? These will be the first of many fruit-Nut combos, I can just feel it.
