I am trying to locate the Coconut M&Ms in the Bethesda MD area ... any sightings ?

Has anyone seen these in the Montgomery County area of MD... or the NW DC area ?

      are the cherry m&ms back? they're great!

      haven't had the raspberry.

    2. Does first-hand research show they're good?

      1. i've been on the lookout for those for a few months, but think their time has passed. i heard they were really tasty. let us know if you find them, please.

          alkapal, me too. OT or somewhat related, do you know where to find full-size Charleston Chews in the DC area? I was on another thread about candy and someone suggested that you might now. I've bought boxes of mini-Charleston Chews at CVS, but really want the full-size ones to freeze & eat! thanks.

            gigi, i'll keep an eye out for them. i'm thinking of walgreen's in clarendon, but i'm not sure.

            1. re: Gigi007

              I've seen + bought Charlestown Chews at Wegman's Sterling. And I've seen them at Five Below Stores too.

                if you get desperate, gigi, you can order online:

                they have vanilla, too.

                1. re: alkapal

                  LOL, alkapal. I AM pretty desperate. These CH boards have the power to do that..:)

                  Thanks all for the advice, everyone. I'm in DC, so hope to find CC's in the city or maybe the nearby suburbs... hmm, if I won't travel to get them, I must not be that desperate. :)

                  P.S. To the OP, you can order the coconut M&M's online (Ebay and elsewhere) too.

                    TWO UPDATES:

                    1. I found on the full-size Charleston Chews (vanilla) at the new CVS in the Chevy Chase Pavilion. Yay!
                    2. Re: coconut M & Ms, the assistant manager of the CVS said they might be able to order them. Apparently, some CVS's have or had them in stock. So, to the OP, talk to the manager of the CVS near you and see if they can order or locate them for you. I was also told that some Target stores had them.

                      gigi, the big charleston chews are on sale 2/$1 (reg. 89ยข each) at cvs through next saturday!

                      1. re: alkapal

                        Thanks, alkapal. I bought 5 yesterday (don't remind the price), and am already almost halfway through my little stash...The ones I got were super-fresh too! I'm a happy camper. :)

                  2. re: Gigi007

                    I would look for full-size Charleston Chews at Dollar Stores.

                2. I saw pb&j kind. They were great.

                  1. I saw some yesterday at the Giant pharmacy on Wisconsin Ave. just north of the Cathedral.
