Limited Edition Wildly Cherry M&M’s

wild cherry m&m’s

I found some Limited Edition Wildly Cherry M&M’s the other day! I’d heard about these and when I saw them on the shelf I snatched them up.

Each bag is 1.5 ounces and the candy itself is about the size of the peanut butter M&M’s (just smaller than the peanut, if that helps). There are only two colors – red and maroon, and I think the maroon is just plain chocolate because I don’t get as much of a cherry kick from those (it’s hard to tell when you’ve already had a cherry one first!).

You can kind of see a slightly lighter chocolate ring just under the shell. I’m not sure if this is where the flavoring is but if you bite one in half there’s an obvious visual difference between the two chocolates.

My first impression is that they taste like cherry cordials – the syrupy chocolate-covered bonbons that are everywhere around Christmas. It’s not overwhelming and is actually pretty tasty, but I can’t get over the hard crunch of the shell combined with the flavor – I’m used to it being paired up with just chocolate and cherry syrup!

    Did you know they have (maybe “had” by now), RASPBERRY M&Ms? I tried them and they are not too bad. I saw them at Sam’s Club.

    I am having a melt-down! Really! I got hooked on those wildly cherry m&m’s and now there are no more! Have you heard anything about whether they are continuing to make them? Or where I can buy them? Black market, anyone?

    Hi Jean! I can’t find them anymore either – I’m also looking for the mint crispy M&M’s and they’re nowhere to be found!

  • http://www.smallbusinessboomers.com Jean Murray

    That is what I figured. I really don’t think it’s nice for Mars to put stuff out there and then take it back.

  • http://chocolatebytes.com/ Heather

    I totally agree!

  • Millie

    I have them in my store in Bethlehem, PA People have come back for more when they buy one. I myself have not tried it but I hear they are delicious.

    Stop by the Candy Factory if you must have them!

  • Nancy Harvey

    I think M&M should make wild cherry and crisp mint a regular product, they are delicious.

    I purchased cherry m&m’s a while back and can not find them now. Need to know how I can purchase more. Thank you.

  • David

    I bought one bag at the M&M store in Times Square on the Sunday (Nov 2, 2008) of the NYC Marathon, brought them back to Vermont where I opened them and wished I’d bought a dozen bags. I called the store today and they said the Cherry M&M’s are no longer being produced! Is that true? Are there any anywhere? Thanks.

  • Bev Malnory

    Is there anywhere you can purchase these cherry m&m’s? I think they need to start making them again! thanks.

  • Donna

    Cherry m&m…please start making them again,,,or where can i find them?
