What new flavor of M&Ms would you like to see?

After trying the Candy Corn and seeing that they have pumpkin pie ones and birthday cake coming out, I was wondering what kind you would invent,, Don't know if they have a place to post suggestions, but maybe they'll come here and try our ideas! I thought they should have white chocolate mint candy cane ones, but turns out they already do!. So, I suggest Hot Chocolate with Mini Marshmallow flavor, using all brown M&Ms combined in the bag with white Mini M&Ms, and maybe a Sea Salted Butterscotch flavor.. I also would like to see Mini M&Ms more available other than the tubes, such as in fun packs.. and also a comeback of the tan ones..I just know that someone is going to say Wasabi...

      good one! Do you mean pistachio flavor, or choc covered pistachio nuts?

        Probably chocolate covered pistachio.But in MM form it would have to be flavored. I really like way my chocolate truffles taste topped with toasted chopped pistachio.

        I'd like to see a wine box selection of M&M;s. Chocolate & wine go really well together.

          Beer goes pretty well too.

          I was going to say bourbon though. Oops I see Uncle Bob beat me to it!

            I liked the suggestion of Grand Marnier by FriedClam, too.

            I'm surprised these haven't been done already!

              I'm thinking of those packages of chocolate "bottles" with different liqueurs and liquors inside, that you get from Europe around this time of the year. Fun!

                Similar but I'm hoping for something much much better. More like the chocolate wine I enjoyed in Napa when the concept was still brand spanking new. A few NJ vineyards bottle chocolate wine, maybe they'll consider a candy!

                  On that Laura Calder special about a year ago, they showed (too briefly) how to make those (liqueur-filled chocolate batons) - I'd like to try it!

                      It involved the creation of a cornstarch "mold". A half sheet pan was filled with cornstarch and leveled off, then this surface was imprinted with a wood mold that leaves small tube-shaped impressions.

                      Next, a liqueur-flavored sugar syrup is poured into the indentions and then additional cornstarch is sifted over to cover the syrup. This is set aside for ??? hours while the cornstarch sucks the water out of the outer parts of the sugar puddles, creating a hard shell with a liquid center.

                      These liquid-containing cylinders are then dipped in chocolate.

                      The one major piece of information that was missing from the show was the ratio of water to sugar to liqueur.

                      I think the show can be viewed online - it's the special where she is exploring France.

                    and as to the post below.we were given a bottle of redwine and chocolate....seems it is of Dutch origin. Nice as a "treat" nothing more.

                    Sort of twist on Bailey's I guess.

                  Peanut butter rice Krispy treat. Saves me the trouble of making the bon bons myself. Plus I'm probably better off eating a whole bag of mms than a whole recipe of bp bon bons. Which I've pretty much done, every single time.

                                              Don't know; but if it's an M&M, it won't melt in your hands.
