Mint M&Ms -- do they still make those?

  • 8

I used to be a huge fan but forgot about them for a while when I went to college. I've been getting a craving for them lately, and I know that they were always sold around the holidays and that they were red, green, and white. (I heard about crispy mint M&Ms a while back, but that's not what I'm looking for.) There's no info about mint M&Ms on the company web site -- do they still exist? If so, where to get them?

      Have seen them maybe twice since the 80's around this time of year, you might want to contact the company by email (if they're like Hershey's, they will answer quickly).

    2. In the fairly new M&M line called Premiums (a better chocolate with unusal combinations of flavors) there is indeed a mint. Expect to pay a premium price.

        Yeah, I am even now eating the Premium "mint thrills" that I got last night from Target. The mint is amazing! I'm picky about mint, most mint candies are too sharp for me but these are really smooth, not too sweet, not burn-y. YUM! They might be almost as good as my absolute favorite mint candy: Frangoes.

      2. I just saw them at Target last night. I'm in So. CA. They were special Christmas themed bags up front by the register.

        M&Ms Premiums also come in a chocolate mint flavor, but they taste much different than the regular mint M&Ms.

          Beautiful. Thanks. So now I have confirmation that they're still out there!

          I just saw a coupon on the Rite Aid web site that has a coupon for seasonal M&Ms, and the accompanying picture is the mint M&Ms bag. It could be an old photo, but I'll cross my fingers and hope the Rite Aid down the street has them! Now it's up to me to decide whether it's worth walking half a mile for 2 for $5 M&Ms...

            Come on, you know it is. Think of the negative calories banked if nothing else!

        2. Got some at Target in Everett last week.
