Welcome To Taste of States a place where we celebrate the weird and wonderful food of the United States of America. This can be everything from the snacks that are available for a limited time to the foods that are classic traditions at events such as Christmas and Thanksgiving! Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food.
There are literally hundreds of flavours that M+Ms tend to great people in America with and a lot of them are limited edition. Today we look at another one of these flavours although don’t do what one reviewer did. They were so excited by the release they did the Cinnamon challenge to celebrate…
In America, the shop Target is the home to Special Edition Candies and in 2011 they were the place to purchase M+M Cinnamon Milk Chocolate. You could purchase a 9.9 ounce pack for $2.99
The M+Ms are coloured in three different red colours which has a real autumnal theme to it. This is also reflected on the packet where the bright green M+M is in a scarf and hat.
From reading reviews on the product, it is apparent that the cinnamon flavour is predominantly in the shell. The taste of Cinnamon has a warming taste that is ‘woody and rich’.
There are a variation of reviews online that say that the M+Ms are sort of like Marmite situation – you either like this flavour or hate it. People have praised them for having a pleasant flavour even though it is faint.
