Too Sweet. And I Shouldn’t Have Been Surprised
I love marshmallows, so seeing that marshmallow is part of something is a great way to get me to try it. When I stumbled over the White Chocolate Marshmallow M&M’s, I didn’t even hesitate before throwing a package into my basket. Sadly, they proved to be disappointing.
Obviously, these treats are designed as a spring seasonal item. The bag and the colors of the candies themselves are pastel spring colors. As you’d expect, they’ve got a marshmallow center with a white chocolate coating and a candy shell.
How to they taste? They are extremely sweet. Honestly, it’s kind of hard to tell much about individual flavors because they are so sweet. I was hoping for some marshmallow taste, but it gets swallowed up in the general sweetness of it all. Frankly, it’s a bit overwhelming with how sweet it is.
And that probably shouldn’t have surprised me. All of the White Chocolate M&M’s I have tried have had the same issue of just being too sweet. I was hoping these would have some distinct flavor, but I was sadly disappointed.
Sometimes, marshmallow can be sticky, but that’s not the case here. In fact, they should make the hard centers of the Caramel M&M’s more like these. They are just a tad gooey but not at all hard to eat.
So I don’t recommend this particular variation on M&M’s. I had to try the White Chocolate Marshmallow variety, but they aren’t nearly as good as they should be.
