Imagine a kind of Nutella that’s laced with little chunks of Crispy M&M’s. Well, Mars made it a reality—and it’s finally available in the U.S.! This chocolate-hazelnut spread is speckled with pieces of Crispy M&M’s and can be found on Amazon for less than $10.
While you’re waiting for your order to ship, imagine how good it’s going to be simply slathered on a piece of toast—maybe with peanut butter or bananas. And for those times when you’re feeling decadent, layered inside a stack of pancakes or tucked in puff pastry bundles. Better yet, enjoy it sans anything, spoon-delivered directly to your mouth. Seriously, friends, this is a great time to be alive.
And just think: This may never have happened if it weren’t for a fan revolt in the early ’00s. After introducing limited-edition Crispy M&M’s (aka M&M’s Crispy) in the late ’90s, Mars discontinued the candies in 2005. Turns out, they became the most sought-after discontinued M&M’s product of all time, and fans started a campaign to bring them back. There were petitions, Facebook posts and calls to the company’s customer service line. Lucky for us, their wishes were fulfilled and in January 2015 Crispy M&M’s were reintroduced and upgraded to permanent status.
Now, a few years later, crispy lovers have another route in which to enjoy these crunchy nuggets. Get your very own tub and start spreading the love.
