Does anyone like M&M Pretzel?

I just bought a bag -
Way too sweet - almost no saltiness from the pretzel, just a muted stale chocolate taste..

  1. Agree totallly. I thought chocolate covered pretzel was the one food item that can't be screwed up - I was wrong.

      I had them once. They're were as bad as I Thought they'd be but I'd wouldn't eat them again..

        Yup - me too!

        I had a few - eating them a different way each time..full on bite...suck the shell, suck the shell & chocolate....No way was a good way

      2. It's a hanging offense...and no one should permit them to sully the doorway at Halloween

        1. Yes, at least I think so. I inhaled the little bag and I won't let myself buy anymore.

          (There's also a separate thread around here somewhere hating on M&M pretzel.)

            Sorry - I never saw it~~But I can't say i am surprised - they are horrific!

            Are you sure you werent just having a "moment" when you ate them??

              There is a review by Supertaster. There's some hate in the comments.

                Thanks - but supertaster actually liked them!?!??!

                "The texture provided by the candy shell and pretzel interior is absolutely marvelous, .."


                I notice a few people mention a stale taste which is what I noticed too...what's up with that?

                  I thought I'd love them... but they're gross! DH didn't really like them either, and he'll eat practically anything.

                    I hate to beat a dead horse here but yeah - these were such a disappointment!!

                    Hmm, I wonder if they get stale quickly and that's the reason for all the hate? The ones I had were nice and crunchy and fresh-tasting. It was the very first time I'd seen them in stores. (But I very rarely buy candy, and it was late at night... maybe I WAS having a "moment"!)

                    Even though I did like the M&Ms, the best commercial chocolate-pretzel candy is definitely Take 5.

            2. I thought the pretzel was too soft and seemed stale. I like the coconut M&Ms a lot.

              1. I do. I guess I'm the only one who does.

                  I like them too! My daughter strong armed me into buying a 40-oz bag from Costco....dangerous!
