Adding to the expanding line of M&M flavors comes the new Pirate Pearl White Chocolate M&Ms (the first time M&M’s have ever been available in white chocolate, I might add). They are a promotional tie-in with the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, and the pastel colored M&M’s feature both pirate-themed bag artwork, as well as pirate designs printed directly onto the candy (see above).
How do they taste? Actually, not all that bad, considering I am not usually a fan of white chocolate. I think I got my fill of it when I was young and allergic to Milk Chocolate. Since then, I’ve always had an aversion. I found it interesting that you can really taste the candy shell on these. I had always assumed the candy shells were chocolate, or flavorless, but with the white chocolate you can really taste the shell and tell that it definitely adds something to the entire M&M taste.
In addition to the white chocolate creation, M&Mâ€™s is also releasing M&M’S Minis Sunken Treasure Mix which actually change color – I can’t wait to try those! Thereâ€™s also M&M’S Milk Chocolate Pirate Gems and M&M’S Peanut Chocolate Captain’s Gold varieties. It should go without saying, but these are limited edition (even though the bag doesn’t say it, they are), and were just released nationwide this week, so keep your eyes peeled for them if you want to try them.
