Dark Chocolate M&M's

Concept: 2 out of 5
Execution: 3 out of 5
Yeah, but: They may be the perfect food.

The Long Version: M&M's have been around for almost seventy years, but the dark chocolate version is an upstart that's only been around a few years. Wikipedia has everything I'll ever want to know about it, and then some - apparently these ones were introduced with a tie-in to Revenge of the Sith. I'm trying not to let that bother me.

The dark chocolate won't win any prizes, but it's good and the candy stops it from being too strong. I usually like dark chocolate because its strength means I don't each as much, but I can go through a pack of these in an easy evening. That also makes it really easy to not get much sleep that night. But for early morning photo excursions, they're an essential part of my kit.

Writing a conclusion for M&M's seems odd, even to me. They have all of the good points of M&M's, and dark chocolate is never a bad thing. They're not a radical innovation, but they're good. About the only negative is that they're slightly more expensive because there's slightly less in each package. All told, not bad.


  1. Whatever.
    I've been enjoying the rare and delicious Coconut M&Ms lately.
    They are as big as the Peanut Butter ones, but instead of being chewey like an Almond Joy the coconut is a flavor added to M&M's already superb choco/candy mix.

  2. Coconut chocolate sounds interesting, but while I'd try it I'm not sure it would be for me. For some reason I'm not a huge fan of coconut, even though I liked it as a kid. These days I'm not even interested in curries that contain it. Call it regression.

    I have a weekend of early mornings coming up, so I have a pack of these set aside. Now all I need is some Almond M&M's and I'll be all set for sunrise photography.

  3. I was in the US recently, and tried the Chocolate Coconut because I remembered you mentioning it - not bad, but Coconut's never really been my thing. I was also surprised to see that the package for the Dark M&M's was purple instead of black. I don't know if that's the usual thing, but I'm always interested to see the little differences.
