I'm one of those people who is really skeptical when they try to screw with the classics. Let's take a look at all of the lousy attempts that people have made while trying to improve upon the classics:

  • New Coke
  • Flubber with Robin Williams
  • The New Filet o' Fish, shakes and ice cream at McDonalds
  • The New Odwalla formulas that avoid apple juice (remember that whole kids dying due to their parents serving then $4.00 bottles of unpasteruized apple juice&#41?
  • The Reeses Crunchy Peanut Butter Cups, Caramel Peanut Butter Cups and Cookie Peanut Butter Cups

So, when I saw the ads for the new M&M Crispy, I figured oh great… another loser M&M variant. You have to realize, I grew up when there were two kinds of M&Ms: Plain and Peanut. Then they brought in the Mint M&Ms… uh, disgusting. Then they tried the M&M Almond, which was nowhere as nice as a Jordan Almond. Finally, they released the M&M Peanut Butter… nice try, but it isn't nearly as good as a Reeses Pieces.

Anyway, Monday night when we went to do laundry, Janet and I decided to grab a pack of M&M Crispy to eat at the laundromat. We opened the packs up… and tried the first ones. Guess what… they were crispy. The center is filled with rice-crispy style puffed rice, and covered with just enough chocolate to make it taste good, but not overly sweet. I think that the crispy M&Ms are better than even the plain or peanut varieties. Add the fact that they are relatively low in calories and fats, and I have a new favorite domestic candy. Yum.

I wonder if this means that we need to do a M&M Comparison page…
