Coconut M&M's in Westchester?

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....

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

    the reviews on the candy blogs are glowing

    1. 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.

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

        1. 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......

          1. 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!

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

              1. 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!

                1. How about the M&M store in Times Square?

                  1. 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!

                    1. 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.

                      2. 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.

                        1. 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!

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

                            1. 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.
