I discovered a bag of “Wildly Cherry” M&M’s at Target today. They are, as near as I can tell, exactly the same as the “Cherry Cordial” M&M’s that I enjoyedd this past Christmas. The same size, color, taste, everything except the packaging.
I’m not sure if this means that the cherry M&M’s were so successful as a holiday special that they decided to sell it at other times of year, or if they were such a failure that they had enough candy left over to try and repackage it and sell out the remaining inventory.
The M&M’s Web site calls this a “limited edition” candy, so chocolate-cherry fans should stock up now!
