White Choc M&M's

Another white choc candy would ordinarily be BFD. But it is slightly more interesting that it’s M&Ms, specifically M&M's White Choc Pirate Pearls candies. Nevermind the annoying promotional tie-in to the movie Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest; unlike some other candy, M&M's doesn’t do many spinoffs. (Ok they did do a ltd-ed dark choc last yr, to promote another $&# movie. And ok there is also now a mega. But really, not that many spinoffs.) These have pastel shells but since they won’t be out til May 12, can't yet describe them (unless you hit Toys R Us). Sure hope the white choc is firm, not gross & soft like reese’s pieces. Less revolutionary but also related to the movie blah-blah: M&M's Minis Sunken Treasure Mix, which sposedly change colors, and M&M's Peanut Chocolate Captain's Gold, all done in fancy gold tones

I went looking for these this week, but didn't know about the super-secret location of the pre-release. Of course in Los Angeles there's a Disney store on every corner like Starbucks, so I should make the effort.

It was only a matter of time before someone did a candy coated white chocolate ... I'm surprised they haven't done it before.

I don't have much interest in candy these days. Life has been busy for me, preparing for my upcoming film role as Mother Teresa, hanging with my new "close friend" Matt (a football player!), and kicking stavros what's-his-name to the curb

Do they say whether the candy-coated shell will be white chocolate?

White chocolate is a waste of calories. In fact, I think it is part of an Iranian plot to make red-blooded Americans have heart problems. Or maybe a Korean plot. Or one of those Russian ploys to take away freedom from New Europe.

I have to agree with Dick on this. I have to agree with Dick on everything (or risk getting shot in the face again).

A WHITE CHOCOLATE SHELL? WHAT THE FUCK? THIS MAKES ME WANT TO BITE SOMEBODY.

Even a crisp candy shell can't make me interested in white chocolate. The Sunken Treasure Mix, on the other hand, I want.

Your comment page is a lively place.

They need to do a combination of the regular M&Ms with some white and dark M&Ms mixed in.

Wow. I didn't know the Disney Store still existed. All of them here closed up. Anyway, I shall be taking a jaunt over to Toys R Us and punting little kids left and right.

So I went over to Toys R Us on Friday night after work and had NO LUCK, dangit.

Marvo - when you live on the Disney homeworld it's not hard to find a Disney store.

I think I might just end up ordering them online and save myself the hassle (CandyWarehouse.com has a deal for all three varieties).

"Cybele" didn't T.G. say that they would be out in regular stores this week? So you wouldn't have to order them online, you ccould just buy them at a regular store.
