Happy Friday and more to the point Happy National Chocolate Day! Just when I was giving up the ghost and putting my M&M eating on hold I couldn’t resist buying these White Chocolate M&M’s. White chocolate is a tricky business to get spot on and when it’s done right it is heavenly however let’s be honest a lot of it can taste really naff. So why did I purchase these? I am clearly a sucker for M&M’s! White Chocolate M&M’s are not by any means a new phenomenon but they are now available all year round and were released as a…

First there were the Candy Corn M&M’s, then the Minty ones and the slightly bizarre Strawberry Nut. I know I said I wasn’t going to partake in anymore M&M’s for a while, but things change and I am a sucker for the variations.

The Monster Munchies Halloween series continues with M&M’s White Candy Corn. We have already had Peanut Butter Candy Corn which is something that should never be made again, but I am hoping these chocolatey numbers fair better.  Another little treat from across the pond, M&M’s have turned all spooky with their orange, white and yellow shells, even Red has got his candy corn on much to his disgust. I picked these up from American Fizz for a bargain import price of £0.99. Don’t you just love how artificial flavours is blazoned on the front all load and proud.   White, yellow and orange candy coating…
