 34 of 36 people found the following review helpful 1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible quality candy, March 5, 2012 By Charles Magnuson (Burlingame, CA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase This review is from: Crispy M&M's Chocolate Candy with Crisped Rice Center, 170g Bag - Rare (Grocery) I've had these M&Ms before and they are delicious. The bag sold by this reseller however is absolutely terrible!When I opened the bag, much of the color had faded from the candies. This was the first sign that they were old or expired. I tasted a few and they tasted miserable. The crisped rice center had the most horrendous after taste I've ever had from a candy. There was also a fruity flavor, which is totally creepy given that these are chocolates.Bottom line: DO NOT BUY THESE M&Ms FROM THIS RESELLER.

I'm not even kidding. I was skeptical from the moment I opened the package considering they had used musty old newspaper for padding. They refused to refund my money on the grounds that they hadn't heard complaints from any other customers, which seems like a blatant lie considering there are other reviews on here complaining about the exact same thing. Order only if you like playing Russian roulette with candy from a dishonest seller.

Sorry, but they don't taste the same. I'm not sure why. The ones that weremade here years ago tasted like regular M&Ms filled with rice crispy-like stuff. This fillingis similar in texture but I don't think it is the same material. That is disappointing.Yes, the bags are small. Remember, they are coming from Germany so you are paying apremium for them. Hopefully, they'll make them again in the U. S.Ok on further reflection, the inside is ok. I think it is the coating that is odd. When I opened the bag I could smellsomethink like hazelnut and kind of got that flavor from the candy. Normally I like hazelnut but NOT in these. I hear we willbe getting Crispy M&M's in the U.S. sometime in 2012. Great!Ok it's Aug 2012 and still no US version. I emailed M&M but no reply so far. I did end up eating them and have a tip. Rub the candy shell with a kleenex before popping it in your mouth. It helps. Its like it has an odd-tasting oil coating it. I think candy makers do put a top coat on for shine and whatever they use in Germany tastes different than what they use here. Yes, its still very expensive but if you have a craving, go ahead.

I couldn't get enough of them! I even bought a huge one (like, Costco-size) and finished it all by myself! Yeah I was soooo sad and disappointed when M&M's discontinued it here in the U.S. I was so frustrated at the time, I emailed M&M and got this response on August 14th 2006:[quote]:In response to your email regarding M&M'S CRISPY CHOCOLATE CANDIES.

Your Friends at Masterfoods USA A Division of Mars, Incorporated[\end quote]So, I never thought of checking it out online, until recently! I googled and found this. I also wanted to share with people, that I found out a few days ago on CNN, that some mom tried to petition m&m's about having natural dye to color the m&m's like they do in Europe cuz apparently, artificial dyes on food over there is banned, but u know, not in the good ol' U.S. of A. So when I was reading the reviews here, I was really surprised people could actually taste the difference. But it's for the better! I couldn't, so I just liked it, LoLz. But you guys are amazing for being able to. Initially, I was upset when I first got this, also thinking it was expired, cuz it's not end of January 2014, but when I got the product, the expiration date was 01/06/2014, and as an American, I was thinking Jan 6th 2014, but realizing that it's imported from Germany, it's probably more like June 1st 2014... or at least I hope so, haha!

It seems to be fresh, but this is NOT the same as the ones you remember eating here in the USA. Different flavor and texture. In my opinion, these are not very good and not worth$12 for such a small bag. (especially since I won't even be eating them) Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? Yes No
