Taste of Home
If the thought of eating a Creamsicle fills you with nostalgia for those hot summer days of childhood, you’ll be ecstatic about this new M&M’s flavor. The candy is called “orange vanilla cream,” and the packaging has some enticing Creamsicle imagery, too.
And if you love Creamsicles but aren’t sure how the flavor would mix with chocolate, don’t fret. These treats are filled with white chocolate, which perfectly complements the orange flavoring. And—we know you’ve been wondering—they taste exactly like that creamy, dreamy treat of our childhood. The candies work well on their own, but they’d also be a great addition to this white chocolate-cloaked snack mix.

There’s one catch to the new candies: The orange vanilla cream M&M’s are only available at Dollar General. So if you don’t live near an outpost of the discount retailer, getting your hands on the new M&M’s will be a bit trickier. But if you do live near a Dollar General, one bag of the orange vanilla cream M&M’s will set you back $3.25. Or, if you’re really in the mood for Creamsicle-flavored chocolate, you can get two bags for $6.

If you’re not near a Dollar General, well, where there’s a will, there’s a way. They’re not on DG’s website yet, but some of the limited-edition orange vanilla cream M&M’s have already popped up on sites like eBay and Bonanza. That means you could get the sweet treats delivered straight to your door—just be prepared to pay a hefty markup on the original price. (Psst: While you wait for the mail to come, treat yourself to our Marbled Orange Fudge, another Creamsicle taste-alike.)
We hear some Dollar General stores are already selling out of the new M&M’s flavor, but we didn’t have trouble finding them. Just to be safe, if Creamsicle-inspired treats are your thing, pick up a bag before the limited-edition candies are gone for good.
