M&M’s have long been our favorite vehicles for getting tiny bits of chocolate into our system for a pick-me-up throughout the day. I mean, they melt in your mouth, not in your hands, so you don’t have to worry about getting your keyboard sticky, and they come in a bunch of different flavors and sizes (mini M&M’s are an underappreciated champion of the candy world, FYI).
Well, now we’re even more excited about acquiring as many M&M’s as our desk drawers and candy dishes can hold because it was just announced that this spring, M&M’s will come in a hazelnut spread flavor.
Whether you’re thinking of classic Nutella or hippie brand Justin’s, we can all agree that chocolate-hazelnut spread is pretty much a gift from the gods. A schmear of the stuff turns fruit into a dessertworthy snack, makes breakfast feel like the most luxurious meal of the day and we’ve even been known to add some to our coffee because we’re rebels like that.
Hazelnut spread M&M’s will make it even easier for us to get our fix, even if we do have to wait until April of 2019 for them. Good things come to those who wait!
In the meantime, there’s another M&M’s innovation coming to us. In December, the brand is launching M&M’s chocolate bars — milk chocolate bars studded with M&M’s in all classic flavors, including plain, peanut, crispy, almond and the new crispy mint. Hopefully, this will help tide us over until the hazelnut M&M’s drop in the spring.
