M&Ms Candy Corn

I'm quite partial to the various flavours of M&Ms the Americans get; we never seem to get massively interesting flavours over here so when I see unusual flavours I normally snap them up - some are good, some not so good. I knew about this Candy Corn variety for a while but had only ever seen the really big bags of them, so when I was out and about and spotted a regular single serving bag I knew I had to snap it up.

M&Ms Candy Corn  

Candy corn isn't really a big thing in the UK but in the US, so I hear, it's a staple Halloween 'candy'; it's difficult to describe what it tastes like if you've never had it before - almost like a sweet vanilla fudge flavour. The flavour is put into a white chocolate base and then covered in the classic crisp M&M shell, coloured in either yellow, orange or white - the classic candy corn colours.

I was worried that they were going to be really sickly sweet - I mean candy corn is pretty sweet in itself, as is white chocolate. Thankfully they weren't throat burning sweet and actually had a pretty good flavour to them. In terms of doing what they say on the packet they hit the spot with the candy corn flavour - so if you don't like the flavour of that then don't buy them!

However if you are partial to the sweet fudgy flavour that it has to offer then I'd definitely give these Candy Corn M&Ms a go; in fact I'd say I even prefer them to regular candy corn due to the addition of the creamy white chocolate and the nice crisp texture that M&Ms offer.

Taste - 8.3/10 - Taste pretty much just like candy corn; just with a bit of a creamier undertone from the white chocolate.
Texture- 9.0/10 - Classic crisp shell from M&Ms that make them ever so moreish.
Appearance - 9.0/10 - Good size, prefer this compared to the smaller M&Ms we have in the UK.
Price - 8.0/10 - I think I paid around £2.50 for these in an American sweet shop; obviously for one bag of M&Ms it puts it around four times what you would pay for a standard bag in the UK. I guess you pay for novelty though.
Overall - 8.6/10 - This comes second only to my beloved Peppermint M&Ms in terms of different flavours I've tried.

WHO FOR?If you're partial to candy corn, can also imagine these would go down a treat with kids.

I have seen bigger bags of these available on eBay; other than that keep a look out in American sweet shops.
