There are a whole lot of M&M varieties we just don't get in this country. Peanut butter, dark, pretzel, mint, I often wish I could buy all those delectable chocolate candies over here for a reasonable price. But hey, who needs various delicious fillings when we can just have the regular old chocolate ones, but three times the size? Yes, these are Mega M&Ms, and they are really just that, mega sized M&Ms. Just look at these bad boys:
I don't have tiny hands, those really are some big M&Ms. The pack says they're 3x, but they do seem a bit bigger than that. I'm not sure, I didn't have any regular M&Ms on hand for comparison. They're about the size of Minstrels, and really, that's pretty much what they're like. The chocolate is different obviously, swapping out the Galaxy for the classic M&M chocolate. I do prefer the Galaxy stuff, but the chocolate in these is pretty nice. As for the shell, it's significantly thinner than a Minstrel, but it does have that distinct crispiness. So with a thin shell and a larger amount of chocolate, the balances are a little off in these, the excess chocolate does make them slightly more sickly and filling. But they are still pretty tasty. Not quite as good as regular size M&Ms, but they're an interesting variation that are well worth trying while they're around.
My rating: 4/5
