M&M's Mint Thrills

M&M's Mint Thrills

Okay, so my husband was laughing at me as I took these pics of these M&M's, but really, I had to post about them.  The are a little-known treasure hidden up on the top shelves in Target stores across the country.  Anyone who loves minty chocolate really has to try these gems.  Just look at them; they're even shiny, for crying out loud!  This is one of those items that has actually gotten that SNL Target cashier comment: "Oh my gosh!  I haven't seen these!  Where did you find them? I need to get some of those!"
The shells on these are not like your typical M&M.  No, they have a barely perceptible crunch to them, due to the metallic green coating. (Yeah, probably not good for me, but I don't care with these.)  The minty chocolate interior is soft and smooth, and very minty.  I shouldn't buy them as much as I do because I can't just eat a couple.  I eat a couple of handfuls.  So, go on out to your local Target to the chocolate aisle and look on the top shelf.  They're worth the trip AND the calories.  Trust me.

*Update.  Bad news.  I can't find these Mint Thrills anywhere now.  I went to the M&M's website, and it looks like they're still making them.  Amazon has a pack of 4 8.1oz bags for $29.99.  Yikes!  I'll have to research this further, and perhaps write a letter to our friends at M&M/Mars.

  3. Oh no, Anonymous! I hate it when Target does that! I don't know where else to get them. I think Walgreens has the smaller package of them, but I haven't looked for them there in a while. I will keep my eyes open.

  4. Don't panic. . . but I bought some at a Target just north of NYC, and a sticker on the bags said "Clearance." I bought a lot of bags. A few weeks later, I can't find them. I fear that they MAY not be available anymore. I hope I'm wrong.
