Has anyone spotted these limited edition bags in the area? I have kept an eye out in my usual spots, but have yet to find them. Not sure how long they will be out but I must have some, doesn't get much better than chocolate and coconut!
Tried: A&P Thornwood and Mt. Kisco, CVS Thornwood, Target Mt. Kisco, Key Foods Pleasantville....

    Coconut M&Ms taste like suntan lotion with a candy coating. I thought they were awful.

        I wouldn't call them awful, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get them. The concept is better than the execution. I much prefer the plain or peanut.

        I saw them today at Century Drugs in Tuckahoe (Crestwood train station) on Fisher Ave.

          I think the OP said they already got it online but I just saw them at the 7-11 in Scarsdale!

            Allright!!! As my "special delivery" has yet to arrive, I think I will have to take a drive to Scarsdale today!

            I called the M&M product hotline and they said they stopped shipping these in July making them a little tough to find now in NY.

              I bought a pack at Gillard's in Bronxville (Palmer Ave.) over the weekend. Don't make a special trip for these M&Ms....blah.

                Check your local Blockbuster- they are featuring them this month.

                After more searching today I gave in and ordered them online. I got sick of cashiers looking at me like I was asking for uranium. And of course they are coming from CA, so I probably won't get them till next week.
                .....will let you know if they are worth all this effort!

                  How about the M&M store in Times Square?

                    Haven't seen them in Westchster. I was in Chicago on Vacation, and found some-- they were ok-- slight chemical after taste. Still worth trying.

                    Good luck!

                      Walgreen's is also great at getting out the Limited Edition stuff out first!

                      1. MikiLovesSugar Aug 30, 2009 06:07 PM

                        I've definitely seen them. It was at a gas station but of course I dont remember which one :-( Usually, mobils are pretty good with limited edition candy. And 7-11... I just found the super new Snickers Fudge (which is awesome!)... I will keep my eyes open!

                          Try Rite Aid for the M&M Coconut.

                          I saw that SF sightings list, that's what inspired me to post here....surely someone has seen them around? I hope? Not sure how much longer I can hold out before I buy online......

                            I'm in LA (different Westchester) and saw them at our Mobil gas station convenience store.

                              Good luck! They came and went very quickly on the West Coast. A friend told me yesterday she saw some at a market in eastern PA, so maybe they're just starting distribution there. Target and Walgreen's were the most reliable sources out here.

                                As a almondjoyaholic these sound fantastic. Looked online and found this place which has expedited shipping 11.6 ounce bag for 5.99...
