      That sounds amazing! What is It? Where do I get it?

      1. re: just_M

        You make it (it's very easy) - typical recipe here: http://www.cooks.com/rec/doc/0,187,15...
        or Google saltine cracker toffee. You can top it with nuts or not as you prefer.

          Thanks buttertart. I've never heard of them, but they look addictive. Now to find tasty saltines.

          1. re: buttertart

            So happy for the saltine cracker toffee recipe. My mom used to make it and I loved the stuff.

      2. How are they different from regular choclate covered pretzels?

          they are not very different from chocolate covered pretzels, just that the are covered in the m&m shells, and conveniently portion controled if you buy the single serve bags. :)

          Edit: I have to say tho, I really enjoy the crunch of the shell, the soft chocolate, then the crunch of the pretzel center! :)

          saltine cracker toffee??? never heard of it!

          1. re: jujuthomas

            OMG - LOVE Saltine Cracker Toffee...I call it CRACK Candy, because if you like Toffee (Like me) then you can not stp eating them!!

        2. I don't like these. They are almost soggy and not enough salt.

            1. re: BeeZee

              You must have very small, nimble fingers ... and very soft peanut butter.

              Lucky you.

            2. Love 'em! I wish we had them in Canada...or that I had picked up more than one bag when i went cross border shopping! I like how the salt isn't overwhelming at all.

              1. My sister has been placing Hershey's Kisses onto pretzels and putting them into that hot thing (not the refrigerator, the other one), melting them a little, then sticking a plain (or peanut) M&M into the top of the Kiss for a few years now. Sometimes they mix it up with a Reese's Piece, or using a mint Kiss. But the basic idea seems to be what M&M is stealing here.

                Any IP lawyers want to take on this case?

                1. My dream of the M & M Cheezit is just one step away . . .

                    Ooohh, a Cheezit in a peanut butter M & M. I could probably eat those all day!

                    1. re: just_M

                      Actually, I'd prefer a Pepperidge Farm goldfish ... or maybe bacon bits.

                      1. re: ipsedixit

                        You may be right, goldfish are pretty good. Now bacon....thats just evil genius!

                        1. re: just_M

                          How about both in one little M&M?

                          Heck, I'd settle for bacon-crusted goldfish crackers ...

                          1. re: ipsedixit

                            How about a nice little piece of real bacon in the tummy of that little fish. Yum, I'd be tempted to snack them by the fist full!

                    2. re: Fibber McGee

                      How about just melting a couple pounds of chocolate over a double boiler, add Cheezits, pretzels, M&Ms, saltines, some nuts if you'd like ( I wouldn't), maybe a few mini marshmallows, pour it onto a sheet pan, let it harden and then break it up into bite-size pieces!

                          Of course someone will steal this idea and market it and I will be in a store one day and see it and kick myself. [:)]

                          1. re: ttoommyy

                            Absolutely no doubt of that. And you'll be able to buy it in gigantic tubs at Costco, with and without nuts! (PS completely offtopic but I'm so happy I moved to NJ, I love it here.)

                              There are a lot of NJ haters out there, but I also love it. Glad you are happy you made the move!

                    3. Pretzel m&ms: so so. No great shakes.

                        I love pretzel m&m's-calorie wise they are not terrible -and I think they would be great in vanilla, chocolate or coffee ice cream!

                        1. re: chicken kabob

                          I just wish the pretzel was crunchier.

                      2. I just tried these the other day.

                        And I must say ... I like the commercials better than the product.

                          Do the commercials feature attractive people?

                          1. re: Tripeler

                            No, only attractive candy and pretzels.

                            1. re: ipsedixit

                              the commercials are cute - with the pretzel cracking his knuckles... "let's get this done" lol

                                pretzel to M&M: "hey, buddy, you think I'm enjoying this?"

                        2. I enjoyed them. But I am sure if I ate more than the 3 that my coworker gave me to taste. I may change my mind.
                          On their website you can locate any M&M you're looking for. =)

                          1. I thought these were awful! I was chomping at the bit awaiting the release of these. I had everyone I know searching for these around town. I finally found them at Walmart a couple of months ago and was so disappointed when I finally tasted them. Where's the salt? What's with the huge nugget of pretzel? I'm a huge fan of the salty sweet combo too. I thought the concept was brilliant but their execution was lame.
