When you’re stuck in a line at the grocery store waiting to be checked out, chances are you’re standing face-to-face with a very strategically placed assortment of candy. If you’re anything like me, the first thing your eye is drawn to is the package of M&M’s seemingly calling your name, asking to be eaten. Of course you can’t resist the temptation, so you grab a bag and open it right there.
Now, what if I told you your candy decision-making was about to get three times harder? Don’t worry; this is actually good news.
M&M’s announced today three new limited-edition flavors — Crunchy Espresso, Crunchy Raspberry and Crunchy Mint — will soon be hitting store shelves for a limited time, but only one will end up sticking around for the long haul, and that decision is actually up to us!
Yup, M&M’s is asking us to try out these new flavors and vote for our favorite. Now, this is an election I can honestly say will have a great outcome and will be way less stressful than other elections. To vote for your fave new flavor, take a “selfie” at flavorvote.mms.com and click the sticker with your favorite flavor pick. If you’d rather, you can also vote via twitter by tweeting #VoteCrunchyEspresso, #VoteCrunchyRaspberry or #VoteCrunchyMint. And if those weren’t enough ways to vote, you can also text the word “VOTE” to 84444 where you will be asked for your favorite flavor.
No matter what flavor wins, though, the future looks sweet: Each candy is filled with dark chocolate and raspberry, mint or espresso flavoring with a rice-crisp center. We wish we could keep them all around to be honest.
All three flavors are available in select stores now, but will be available nationwide starting April 1, with voting going on thru May 25. However, we’ll have to wait until August to learn the winning flavor, and that flavor will get to stick around for 18 months.
Voting is so stressful!
