Internationally Inspired M&M Collection
So bear with me for a bit. I had a few things prepped for the site, but didn't end up wanting to use any of them for that first article (which ended up being a wise choice as the feedback so far had been great). The downside is that the next few articles won't be as timely ... as you will see here.
Based on the date-stamp on the photos I took, it looks like these were from two months ago. 4/20 to be specific, so I was most likely hiding offline in order to avoid the vibrant and imaginative humor that was abundant that day. Passing through CVS, I spotted them and figured it was worth a try. I haven't had much luck with the 'world flavors' on things like Lays chips, but who knows. Maybe adding curry to chocolate is just something I've been missing out on all my life. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be stepping on a ton of faux-pas landmines throughout this article, so let's jump on in!
So first up is English Toffee, and though I want to say it's objectively the best, I'm sure someone will take issue with that. Instead I'll soften and just say it was my favorite. It's the closest to staying with the realm of desserts, so the toffee flavor certainly pairs well with the chocolate. These were the only ones I was able to finish in their entirely in any case. I didn't outright dislike any of the flavors in this collection, but the desire to go back and continue eating one does speak better for it.
Second up is Thai Coconut. While I only felt like eating the few in order to get an idea of its taste, I do admit that they got the flavor down fairly well. I wouldn't say it really worked, but had this been anything other than a candy item, I would have been more willing to continue. Luckily hours later it didn't have the same effect that Thai curry usually has.
And finally Mexican Jalapeno. I was at odds with this, mainly because I love hot and spicy things, but I've had peppered hot chocolate before and couldn't stand it. Someone out there is most likely shouting at me for my culinary ignorance, but I'm more for the sweet candies with little deviation save for the occasional salty offering like chocolate pretzels.
I haven't seen any of these since, so I will safely hope that none of you read this article and we can forget that it ever happened. I have another article prepped for later this week in order to get back into your good graces.
