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?

      1. re: chompie

        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.

      2. 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!

          1. re: coll

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

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

            1. re: HillJ

              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!

              1. re: coll

                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!

                    1. re: HillJ

                      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.

                      1. re: sandylc

                        Sounds like a technique I've seen for making Turkish delight. I'll try to find the show online, txs.

                        1. re: HillJ

                          Please report back if you try it! I'll do the same...

                          1. re: sandylc

                            Sounds good. After the holidays, I'll be more likely to tinker in the kitchen.

                  1. re: coll

                    yeah, that was sort of my inspiration

                    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.

                1. 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.

                  1. I'd love a spicy version. Maybe chocolate with some cinnamon or a little cayenne.

                      1. Foie gras

                        (I live in CA. Most of the time.)

                        1. Split pea soup. Is it just me or aren't there enough things flavored like split pea soup?

                          1. Beside the obvious peanuts, almond, pistachio....etc, I am thinking about fruits bites.

                            1. Cybele May over at Candy Blog remarked she'd like to see 65% dark chocolate M&M's with marcona almonds. Yes.

                                not almonds, but they do have a 65% dark with peanuts

                              2. A combination of celery, avocado and plum.

                                1. Dark chocolate and green tea. Or maybe even coconut mochi inside! Candied ginger but its similar to the gingerbread now. Have they made speculoo yet or brown butter caramel?

                                          Whoops, I meant to write ube. I was thinking of Terra Chips at the time, and coughed up the wrong tuber.

                                      1. Bacon......I can't believe nobody has said bacon yet. Well.....not really, but again, I just can't believe nobody has said it yet.

                                            What does Viagra taste like?

                                            If it's anything like Cialis, I'll pass.

                                            1. re: ipsedixit

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

                                              1. re: Wayno

                                                Be sure to contact your physician if you have a stiff finger lasting more than 4 hours.

                                                  You sure that physician is the one to contact?

                                            1. larger with a Grand Marnier center?

                                                    1. LSD -- Melts in your mind, not in your hands.

                                                      But seriously, I would like to see a raisin, covered with chocolate, then covered with that thin, thin, thin candy shell and then emblazoned with the M&M logo.

                                                        Old reply, but I've heard mind you that chocolate helps kick start LSD.

                                                      2. well, since nearly everyone replied with a savory, as I was, and this OP sounds more like a schill, I'll go with blue raspberry. I, personally don't care for that flavour, but since you asked.

                                                        Oh ! I almost forgot ! Wasabi...

                                                          oh LAWD!.........a big tart blueberry, dipped in dark chocolate, covered with a candy shell..........now THAT would be good!

                                                            just saw this,,,a schill!? that's funny..no, I've been around on the boston board for years and years.. I didn't realize this thread has kept on going! I still want to see Minis in diffierent colors, like they do for all the seasonal ones... And now its Passover and I have a bag I cant eat for a week so I want them to make Kosher for Passover ones..

                                                          2. Chocolate chip cookie dough.

                                                            1. Toffee (ala Heath) or peanut brittle. Or coconut, with dark chocolate.

                                                              1. It would be great if they could put chocolate in them!

                                                                1. Chocolate brownie, cheesecake, salted caramel, walnut, macadamia

                                                                  1. Don't really care about flavour. As long as the casing gives you the choice between the red pill or the blue pill I'll be happy- well I'll have the illusion I'll be happy at least ;)

                                                                    1. Butter pecan or caramel.

                                                                        1. They just need to salt the existing peanut ones.

                                                                          1 Reply

                                                                              1. First of all, I would want them less sweet - all you can taste is "sweet" now - maybe because the chocolate inside is so "Meh". So made with better quality chocolate and....

                                                                                ***Mocha/Coffee/Espresso flavor***

                                                                                    1. not that it matters for me currently.....but if you would be so kind....

                                                                                      peanut butter (mucho improved version over current please)

                                                                                      almond joy (same as above please)

                                                                                      a really creamy caramel would be appreciated for my man
