Wandering through the aisles at the supermarket, I spotted a bag of Mint Crisp M&Ms candies. Obviously, I had to give them a try.
The bag has some nonsense about Indiana Jones on it. I can't seem to understand what Indiana Jones and Mint Crisp M&Ms have to do with each other. I mean I understood why Shrek junk food is green (Cheetos, Snickers). But I can't seem to figure out this marketing tie-in.
The Mint Crisp M&Ms come in three colors, dark green, light green, and white. The are different icons on the candy, some sort of reference to the movie. Maybe there is some sort of party game I just understand where the masks and skulls matter.
The candies themselves taste great. They taste like a mini Thin Mint cookie! The colors all taste the same though.
Inside the candy is a little core center of cookie of some type. From the ingredients list, it looks like the center is made of rice, like the crispy cereal. There is just a tiny crunch when you bite them.
These are well worth the effort to track them down. Grab them before the movie promotion is over and they disappear.Posted by michael at May 04, 2008 08:14 PM
