M&M's Has SO Many Flavors — but Which Is the Best?
M&M's keeps coming and going with the changing seasons, but thankfully some of the best flavor creations are here to stay for good. We've already checked out some of the core M&M's flavors and ranked them in order (shout-out to our number-one Peanut Butter M&M's), but since so many new options have come out, we decided to rank those as well. We rounded them all up and put a lot of thought and effort into really examining the flavor. (We ate a boat load of M&M's, is what I mean by that.) You'll be pleased to know that our favorite shouldn't be disappearing from shelves any time soon, so you can easily get your hands on them . . .
Vanilla Cupcake M&M's
The cupcake flavoring is a little artificial on these, which makes it hard to eat too many at once. They were OK, but not our favorite.
We had mixed feelings about this flavor, because we hoped for a really rich butterscotch flavor. What we actually got was a candy that was a little bit too sweet and a little bit too artificial tasting.
Honey Nut M&M's
No, they don't taste like Honey Nut Cheerios, or really honey for that matter. They are tasty and have a slight honey taste, but not much, which is a plus if you're not that into honey.
Coffee Nut M&M's
While these M&M's definitely have a coffee taste to them, the flavor isn't that strong, which can be good or bad depending on what you want. We wish the flavor was stronger.
White Chocolate M&M's
White Chocolate M&M's have been coming and going as a flavor and they're finally here to stay, which is great, because they're a solidly delicious flavor. They're not too buttery and have just the perfect balance of white chocolate underneath the crunchy shell.
Chili Nut M&M's
These are actually SPICY. The title of these red and orange M&M's doesn't lie — after a few seconds of chewing, the spice kicks in, and the chili flavor pairs really well with sweet chocolate.
White Cheesecake M&M's
OK, we totally wish the White Cheesecake M&M's were a full-time flavor, because they are awesome. They taste a bit like cream cheese frosting mixed with the white chocolate and are a hefty little bite!
Crispy M&M's recently made a comeback, and we're so glad they did. The little round candies have just the right amount of crunch inside and have solidified a place in our candy rotation.
Caramel M&M's are literally the best M&M's ever to have been created. They have your usual M&M crunch on the outside but have a rich, chewy caramel center that's packed with flavor.
