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!
