While we are desperately trying to hold onto the final gasps of summer, it seems the candy aisle has steamrolled right past back-to-school and is readying for Halloween.


Instagram user JunkBanter, known for leaking breaking snack information, has revealed Cookies and "Screeem" M&M's can be found right now at Target. Aside from the seasonally appropriate name, it’s also inspired by a flavor many of us have long loved — cookies and cream.

The flavor, which seems to be much like our imagined (er, fantasized about) M&M's and Oreo baby, is made up of a dark chocolate shell, white chocolate filling and a white-speckled coating.

The release of Cookies and Screeem M&M's wasn't the only news JunkBanter dropped. "Of course this is all spooky foreplay for the Triple Chocolate M&M's coming this winter, which have milk, dark, & white," JunkBanter wrote in their post.

We'll have to wait to see if this is true, but it sure does sound delectable.

For now, we have tasty cookie-themed candies, and that's good enough news for me. I think it's safe to assume these will be available in all major stores soon, but for the time being, get in your car and get to your local Target ASAP.
