Mint Crisp M&Ms

Tonight at Walgreens, I ran into a stack of Mint Crisp M&M’s bags. A tie-in with the upcoming Indiana Jones movie, these green-and-white M&Ms are mint-flavored like the holiday mint M&M
s and crispy like the now-defunct crispy M&M’s. I’ve missed crispy M&Ms ever since they were discontinued, and I always look forward to mint M&Ms during the holiday season, so I was very excited to try these out. On the balance, though, I’m somewhat disappointed. The rice crisps seem to clash with the mint flavor rather than blend with it, and I think the two work better separately. Still, for those who miss the crispy M&M, it’s better than nothing. I think these are a limited-time special and will probably be gone once Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is out of theaters.
