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 Halloween treats hitting store shelves. First, it was news that Pumpkin Pie Kit Kats are returning this fall. Now, we’re getting a sneak peek at M&M’s new Creepy Cocoa Crisp Halloween flavor.
About M&M’s Creepy Cocoa Crisp
This spooky new 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 and one of the first to spot M&M’s newest flavor, says, “For chocolate lovers such as ourselves, this easily beats many M&M flavors out right now…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!”
They sound like they’ll be awesome in these M&M’s cookie recipes.

🦇 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! 😍🍂🎃
Where to Find Them
You can pick up a bag—or two, or three—of new Creepy Cocoa Crip M&M’s for $3.19 each, exclusively at Target. Although a few bags have already been spotted, most stores won’t have them on shelves until Back to School season is over and the Halloween aisles have been set up.
