Fall, Time To Celebrate The Pumpkin
One of the reasons I am in love with fall is no doubt all the pumpkin treats that bloom everywhere. I love pumpkin coffee so much I drink is year round, I love pumpkin spice cake so much it was my wedding cake…you getting the picture? Well then, how excited can you imagine I am to see the M&M’s brand is bringing us pumpkin flavored M&Ms! .
The debut of a new M&M flavor for fall: pumpkin spice. The flavor is now available at Target stores nationwide, priced at around $3 for a 9.9-ounce bag.

Food review site The Impulsive Buy says they taste like a cross between a regular M&M and a Cinnamon Red Hot and lacks some of the other spiced flavors of a usual pumpkin spice…whatever you like. And I quote:
” If you’ve been one of the few people who’ve secretly got their candy fix by chugging both Milk Chocolate M&M’s and Cinnamon Red Hots, well, these Pumpkin Spice M&M’s are going to make you happy. Otherwise, you’ll just want to stick with your standard favorite M&M’s variety.”
Bummer dude, guess I’ll just have to try them for myself and let you know.
And if it doesn’t satisfy turns out Hershey makes a pumpkin spiced kisses. Oh yeah I sense some research coming on:)D
