Has anyone tried the new pretzel M&M's? I think their pretty good. Kind of the consistency of a whopper and the taste isn't overbearing. What do you guys think?

The first time I saw a commercial for these I posted a Facebook status that said something like, 'I love M&Ms, and I love pretzels, but that doesn't mean they have any business putting pretzels in M&Ms.' I think like 10 people "liked" my status so I know I'm not alone in that sentiment. I'm still scared to try them.

Not to thread jack, and this will probably make me sound like a hypocrite, but I ran across coconut M&Ms in a convenience store recently and I didn't hesitate for a second to buy them. And I loved them. I think there's precedence for that one though as Mounds have been around for awhile (and are probably my favorite candy bar) whereas I don't think I've ever heard of a candy bar or bite-sized candy with pretzels inside.

I thought they were like a "light" version of the peanut ones. Liked, but didn't LOVE them.

The coconut M&Ms are good, but if you can find the bags of Almond Joy Pieces, those are way better.

Haven't seen the pretzel M&Ms here yet. Only found the coconut ones at a candy store that imports stuff (a tip of the hat to hansen9j for the lead), so I'm guessing it'll be a while.

Planning on going to the US in a few weeks for a day trip, so if you Americans think there's any good junk food I should try, be sure to let me know.

And as James' twitter timeline no doubt showed less than an hour later, they are actually in Regina and not just in any fancy-pants stores.

Pretzel intrigues me. Coconut sounds disgusting. Really, Canada is just treading water until Flamin' Hot Cheetos are finally available here.

There are a couple chocolate bars with pretzels in them. Being a fan of salty/crunchy/chocolate I'll have to keep an eye out for the M&Ms.

Took me a few moments to stop wondering why you were comparing its consistancy to that of a hamburger. B^)

Last time I was in Singapore I had Orange M&Ms. I don't think they're available in the States, but they rule.

Aha, I didn't figure it out until just now. Duhr.

Pretzel M&M's hijacked the blue bag for the old Crispy M&M's so I refuse to try them on principle even though they are available here in the Vending Machine from the 9th Circle of Hell.

When a chocolate-pretzel combo isn't salty enough, you're wasting my time. The M&Ms are not salty enough.

I don't like the pretzel M&M's. Just didn't work for me.

The coconut ones aren't bad, considering I'm not much of a coconut fan.

Now the Strawberried Peanut Butter ones they came out with last year...THOSE were tasty.

I saw them in a convenience store on a road trip to Idaho in May.

PRETZEL M&Ms ARE PROOF OF A LOVING GOD.

I have devoured four gigantic bags since then and almost put one suitcase overweight with all the M&Ms I was bringing with me when flying back from Arizona earlier this month.

I found the Pretzel M&Ms incredibly mediocre, and totally buy into the Whopper comparison.

Ah, so THAT'S what a Take 5 is. That sounds like a pretty interesting combination. Probably a little too much packed into one bar for my personal tastes but I can see how it could be pretty popular. Peanuts AND peanut butter? That's so crazy, it just might work!

Take 5 is delicious. It isn't too much. Sweet, crunchy, salty, peanuty.

It took me a few hours to see it. I sometimes don't remember to look at Twitter when I get home.

Having said that, yes, Pretzel M&Ms are available at Extra Foods - even the sketchy one by my apartment. And they're... pretty okay. It's nice that they're a little lower calorie than some of the other ones, but they counteract that by only selling them (for now) in big bags. If I was going to buy a big bag of M&Ms, I'd just throw all caution to the wind and get the superior peanut butter ones.

They're not that much lower in calories.

A regular size regular M&Ms is 240 calories and 47.9 grams. That's 5.01 calories / gram.
A regular size pretzel M&Ms is 150 calories and 32.3 grams.
So that's 4.65 calories / gram.

If the regular size pretzel M&M bag had as many as the regular size regular M&M bag, then it would have 222 calories. (Though the difference between the pretzel and say the peanut butter would probably be much larger).

The real trick is that the pretzel bag has about 1/3 less M&Ms in it.

They would have been better if they weren't just a little ball of pretzel with an oh so thin layer of chocolate. If Mars had filled the pretzel shell with chocolate and then covered that with the normal candy coating, I could see these going over better.

I pine for the day Mars figures out how to put peanut butter in the pretzel ball. It should be amazing.

You are correct - I just found the smaller bags here and it's quite obvious that there's a lot less in one of these bags. It feels like there's about 13 M&Ms in the pack (though they're each a fair bit bigger than the plain ones).

Portion control isn't a bad thing in my mind, but I can see how a person might feel like they weren't getting what they were paying for.

Of course I was thrilled to find these available in Canada.
