M&M’s Is Releasing Perhaps Its Best New Flavor Yet

Updated

M&M's

In effort to satisfy every taste bud in America, M&M’s is releasing yet another flavor of chocolate-y goodness.

On Tuesday, the candy company revealed that people will soon be able to buy Caramel-flavored M&M’s (cue the clapping and doves flying). The new flavor, which will be have a permanent residence on candy shelves, is expected to be the biggest product launch in the brand’s history.

They are described as featuring “a creamy caramel center covered in delicious milk chocolate, enclosed in a colorful candy shell.” Although they won’t be hitting shelves until May 2017, PEOPLE writers and editors had a chance to be one of the first to try it out.

Given it was a deadline day at the magazine, staffers were shoving any food they could find in their mouths, but the general consensus was that this candy is legitimately a pure delight.

One editor described them as being like “Rolos with a crispy shell.”

The M&M’S are certainly more chewy than any of their other flavors, which made one writer have flashbacks of getting Milk Duds stuck in her teeth.

But another couldn’t believe what she was eating — and that she liked it.

I don’t even like caramel so I’m shocked I dig these as much as I do. They’re chewier than regular M&M’S but not in a bad way. It’s the perfect mix of caramel and chocolate.”

While we certainly have given them a stamp of approval, you can decide for yourself in just seven short months.
