M&M’s Launches Three New Crunchy Flavors


Is there really anything better than new candy? If that new candy happens to be M&M’s, the answer is no.

Mars Incorporated Inc.’s beloved “colorful button-shaped chocolates,” each of which is printed with a lowercase “m” on one side, has a new collection of flavors for us chocoholics to check out.Earlier this week, the company announced that there would be three new flavors introduced for customers: Crunch Espresso, Crunchy Raspberry, and Crunchy Mint.

Reports from the U.S. company state the three new flavors are unique and give something for everyone, with one tasting like morning coffee, another touted as tarty and the third as a minty fresh flavor.

AdditIonally, the new flavors are made with dark chocolate and covered in the brand’s classic and bright crispy shells. Inside Crunchy Raspberry is a regular rice crisp center, while Crunchy Espresso and Crunchy Mint rice crisp centers are cocoa.

While the new limited edition flavors of M&M’s will be available at select retailers across the U.S., customers can expect to see them hit stores nationwide on April 1.

And now the fun part: if there was an American Idol for chocolate, this would be it. The three new flavors have not arrived without reason. In fact, they are part of M&M’s second Flavor Vote campaign, which allows candy fans try each new flavor and cast one vote per day for their favorite until May 25.

To vote, take a photo of yourself, upload it to flavorvote.mms.com, and add a sticker to represent your favorite color before submitting. You can also add one of the three official hashtags for the special flavors to social media posts to represent your love for #VoteCrunchyEspresso, #VoteCrunchyRaspberry, or #VoteCrunchyMint. But don’t worry, if you don’t feel like voting with your photo you can simply vote online or text the word “VOTE” to 84444.

Fans may recall the first Flavor Vote campaign two years ago. In 2016, the brand held a vote in honor of their 75th anniversary and a million fans voted on their new peanut flavor. The winner in that vote was Coffee Nut.

The winner of this year’s contest will be announced in August, and fans will have 18 months to enjoy the flavor while it enjoys its victory tour on store shelves everywhere.

As for those new flavors? While we weren’t able to get our hands on all three of them, we were able to find Crunchy Raspberry. Let’s just say Crunchy Mint and Crunchy Espresso have some steep competition for our vote.

Will you be trying the new Crunchy M&Ms flavors? Let us know who you’re voting for in the comments below!
