One candidate wants you to believe she’s sweet, another is setting the political world on fire, while a third just appears to be overly caffeinated. Meanwhile, you are left wondering when the pressure is on, will they melt under that crisp exterior shell? No, this isn’t the presidential primaries; it is far more delicious than that. We are voting for the new M&M's® Peanut flavor!
I still remember, as a child, voting for the new M&M's® color. Yes children, there was a dark time in this world before there were any blue M&M's®. That may have been over twenty years ago, however I still find myself savoring the sweet taste of victory every time I pop one of those beautiful blue orbs in my mouth!
Just as blue was my color of choice twenty years ago, I’ll be campaigning hard for the new M&M’s® Chili Nut to win the flavor vote! It faces stiff competition from M&M’s® Honey Nut and M&M’s® Coffee Nut!
All of these flavors can be found at Walmart for only a limited time. You only have until June 17th to purchase and vote for your favorite flavor! The winner will be announced in August, and one lucky voter will even win $100,000!
Before you are tempted to vote for M&M’s® Honey Nut or M&M’s® Coffee Nut, let me attempt to sway you with a deliciously sweet and spicy snack that is best made with M&M’s® Chili Nut – My Spicy Trail Mix with M&M’s®!
