M&M’s Creepy Cocoa Crisp Candies Are Coming Back for Halloween

Trick or treat! M&M's is bringing back this spooky Halloween candy.

Summer is still in full swing, but hints of fall are popping up in stores all around the country. While some people get pumped for everything pumpkin spice, we can hardly contain our excitement for the new and returning Halloween treats hitting store shelves. Now, we’re getting a sneak peek at M&M’s prodigal Creepy Cocoa Crisp Halloween flavor.

About M&M’s Creepy Cocoa Crisp

This spooky candy has a cocoa crisp center and a layer of dark chocolate, all cloaked in a red, orange or brown candy shell. Instagram user @mnmtwinz, a source for snack-related news, was one of the first to spot M&M’s creepiest flavor last year. If you tried them, you know these guys were a major hit—who can turn down creamy dark chocolate with a crunch?

These taste even more amazing in our M&M’s cookie recipes along with Crispy M&M’s Chocolate Spread.

🦇 Spooky season came early! Creepy Cocoa Crisp @mmsChocolate are out now at Target—but many stores won’t have them stocked until the Halloween aisles begin being set up after Back to School season is over. If you’re lucky, you may find a Target employee kind enough to check the backroom for you. Unsure if these will be sold in other stores, but Target is your best bet for now. 055-00-0945 is the DPCI number you want to give an employee. College Point was the location that got them in NYC. They can check multiples stores in your area for these, just ask them to “find elsewhere”. • 🍫 These m&m’s contain a cocoa crisp center with a layer of dark chocolate surrounded by a candy shell. For chocolate lovers such as ourselves, this easily beats many m&m flavors out right now (although peanut butter m&m’s will remain our top favorite). The dark chocolate is rich and a little bitter as dark chocolate should be, and the cocoa crisp is satisfying. This is a definite recommend! Is it too soon for Fall/Halloween? We think not! 😍🍂🎃
