The Battle of The Pink Candy

As we all know, limited edition candy is all the rage these days. For a while everything came with a coating of dark chocolate or a layer of creamy peanut butter. However right now, the trend seems to be the addition of fruit flavors and pink hues.

This weekend I had the opportunity to try both the limited edition Razzberry M&Ms that I told you about a few weeks ago, as well as the new-ish Strawberry Milkshake flavored Whoppers. The limited edition M&Ms were definitely the preferred option, but to check out what I thought of each,

The packaging on the Razzberry M&Ms is a fun, well downright girly, purple with pink accents, and upon opening it there is definitely a slight artificial raspberry smell. Each M&M is magenta colored and initially I thought the flavor was in the candy shell, but after eating several I realized it was actually in the chocolate. Despite how clichéd the raspberry/chocolate combination is, it was actually quite tasty. I honestly enjoyed eating them and hope they introduce a dark chocolate flavor.

Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the Strawberry Whoppers. Whoppers are generally chocolate covered malt balls, but this edition contains no chocolate. Instead they're malt balls wrapped in a strawberry-flavored white chocolate-ish coating. In theory it's a great idea, but in execution it fails due to the fact that the strawberry coating is ridiculously waxy. After eating a handful my teeth felt laminated and weird. Apparently at Easter they sell a version with a candy shell and I'm pretty positive it might be just what it needs to save it.

So verdict? Hunt down the M&Ms (they're only available for six weeks) and ignore the Strawberry Whoppers until Easter. Oh and stay tuned, I'm sure these won't be the the only limited edition fruit flavored candies.

I actually tried those Whoppers before and I have to agree --- they're very strange! I'll stick to the regular malt balls... the M&Ms sound tasty though. Jelly Belly came out with something similar. The flavor was in the candy coating for sure but they came in a large variety of flavors and the chocolate inside was pretty decent. I was impressed!

I have had the Whopper ones and I liked them. I didn't get "waxy coating" it was more melt in your mouth with the traditional yummy malt center. Haven't seen the M&M's yet.

I don't think I could do the Whoppers as they don't even sound very good. I could definitely try the raspberry M&M's....fantastic combo of flavors!

I'm generally not a fruit chocolate fan, but my one exception is the rasberry and chocolate combo. So divine!

Anything that says M&M is a favorite!

The M&M's are sooo good just the right amount of raspberry, not over powering or too sweet. My aunt works for the company so we have had non stop supplies since they were introduced:)
