New Birthday Cake M&M’s
With GrubGrade turning 5 years old on Tuesday, I felt it was fitting to grab a bag of new Birthday Cake M&M’s today. These M&M’s were originally supposed to be released this coming Spring, but they are being spotted everywhere now. I found them at my local CVS for $1.19.
We talked about Birthday Cake M&M’s on The Nosh Show months ago and I admitted not caring for chocolate birthday cake. Birthday Cake M&M’s come in yellow, red, and blue candy coated shells. These are the bigger M&M’s reserved for limited time only flavors and the bigger size usually helps the new flavor get across. These M&M’s do a so-so job of replicating the frosted chocolate birthday cake flavor and not enough to really impress me. Birthday Cake M&M’s taste way too much like regular milk chocolate M&M’s to be memorable.
I wish the Mars company went with a yellow cake, white frosting birthday cake flavor instead of milk chocolate. Even though I have a personal bias against chocolate birthday cake, I still think these M&M’s tasted too much like the traditional M&M’s for me. Regular M&M’s are still great, a classic, so these are by no means bad… just no wow factor. Grab a bag and let us know what you think in the comments.
