Limited Edition Coconut M&Ms

roejimmy Jun 23, 2009 05:13 PM

I read with interest a post about these the other day - and cannot find them anywhere - any 'hounds see these in Greater Boston/Metrowest?

    I bought a bag of the coconut at the Target in Watertown today, if anyone is still looking for these.

      Were they with the checkout candy or in the actual candy aisle? I have looked at an embarrassing number of places for these...

        I *think* they were in the candy aisle. But now I am second guessing myself and wondering if they were on a register end cap! I'm pretty sure they were in the candy aisle though, on the very end of a shelf, so you could see them without really going in the aisle. (They were really yummy! My coworkers polished them off in no time.)

      Today, I got the PB and Strawberry at Walmart in Quincy at The Falls. They had large bags in the bagged candy aisle and individual bags at each register. I didn't see the Coconut ones anywhere there.

          Thank you. They got probably a hundred bags when I drop by today.

          I just got a few bags of the Coconut ones at the Rite Aid behind Fenway Pk on Boylston St. They didn't have the PB+J ones. I asked, and they weren't even aware they made them. The coconut ones were on a special display at the end of an aisle on the right after you walk through the front door.

            I found Strawberry PB at CVS across Walmart in Stoughton. No sign Coconut yet.

              CVS in Chestnut Hill had the strawberry pb ones as well last week. They are good.

            I found the coconut ones at Sudbury Farms in Needham yesterday. Had to check them out. A little disappointed that the coconut comes from artificial flavoring...how hard would it be to put real coconut in there? But they are still pretty tasty, and a fun thing to try. No desire at all to eat the pb&j ones, though...they sound yucky to me! :)

              I like the strawberry peanut butter ones much better than the coconut. The coconut flavor is too subtle.

                I found some in Somerville at Rite Aid about 10 days ago. They were mighty tasty. Haven't been back since to see if they still have them.

                    Did you ask? My girlfriend found both the strawberry and the coconut at the Times Square M&M store last week.

                    I FOUND THE STRAWBERRY PEANUT BUTTER ONES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                    South Station, store in the middle selling tons of candy.

                    I bought them out! Every single pouch! I haven't tried them yet but I'm banking on that fact that I'll love them! Hahahahahaha.

                    No sign of the coconut ones :(

                        Saw them at the Walgreen's in Coolidge. I can't think of anything i'd rather eat less.

                          I tried them thinking they would offer some sort of a "peanut butter and jelly thing" in my mouth. Not even close. They are gross.

                          The 7-11 across from North Sation has them at the register. Coconut is subtle. Pretty good stuff.

                            My NY office is across the street from the M&M store in NYC, and I have successfully avoided going in there so far. Maybe I need to pop in there and see if they have coconut M&M!

                              Went to Walgreens in Central Square today. They HAD the strawberry peanut butter ones but sold out... no sign of the coconut ones :( My search continues!

                                      I saw them in Cambridge about three weeks ago... I think it was either at Walgreen's or Shaw's.
