Candy Review: M&M’s Speck-tacular Eggs

Categories: Candy,Candy Reviews,Chocolate Candy,Holiday Candy

Speck-tacular Eggs

One of the all-time favorite Easter candies is also one of the simplest: a solid chocolate egg, coated, M&M’s-style, in a crisp candy coating. And, as is so often the case, it’s that deceptive simplicity that makes the Mini Egg so hard to duplicate: the subtle, yet unique flavors of the chocolate and shell are so integral to the Mini Egg experience that no other brand can quite capture it. Not that that’s stopped them from trying, though. In addition to Hershey’s Eggies and various no-name brands, Mini Eggs now have yet another imitator: M&M’s Speck-tacular Eggs.

In addition to that not-so “speck-tacular” pun in the name, there’s definitely something ironic about M&M’s competing with a product that is, in a roundabout way, a rip-off of M&M’s. It’s like when The Simpsons got more raunchy in order to compete with Family Guy, which itself started as a rip-off of The Simpsons… anyhoo, moving along….

The bag design is a little odd, with its tiny M&M’s logo and the name of the product printed even smaller than that. The yellow banner advertising M&M’s “Join the Hunt” contest is bigger and more eye-catching than the logo. What’s more important here? And I had to look at Red and Yellow there for a few minutes before I realized that they were coming out of an Easter bunny suit, and Yellow wasn’t just randomly carrying around a severed Easter bunny head. At least the eggs on the bag are printed nice and big, so there’s no doubt about the package contents.

This Valentine’s Day, Think Green

Categories: Candy,Candy Reviews,Chocolate Candy,Limited Edition Candy,Novelty Candy

green_mms.pngOh, Valentine’s Day. The one day a year when, for some reason, it becomes socially acceptable for respectable adults to stand on the subway carrying giant teddy bears and “I Wuv U” balloons. The world becomes a mass of pink and red, with flowers and hearts and, happily for us, tons of candy boxes lining store shelves. For some people, Valentine’s Day is a big old mushfest, and they wouldn’t have it any other way. For the rest of us, Valentine’s Day is simply the day before February 15, the real holiday, when all of those delicious heart-shaped candy boxes get marked 75% off.

However, there are some options for the anti-pink and red brigade this Valentine’s season, as the folks at M&M’s/Mars are once again promoting their all-green M&M’s packages, an homage to the urban legend that celebrates the, uh, romance-enhancing properties of the green candy shells. On each package of Green M&M’s is Ms. Green herself, sassy as ever, reminding us that green is, in fact, the “New Color of Love.”
