Peanut M&M's - Orange Edition (99p Stores)


When I saw these Peanut M&M's in 99p Stores recently I got rather excited...they were in an orange wrapper, contained orange-colored M&M's...and the packet said "Oranje Editie" on it! So of course I assumed they must be an orange-flavoured edition. "How exciting...a new M&M flavour!", I thought.

I should've known better. Because for some annoying reason M&M's constantly repackage their products based on various colour combinations, but never change up the actual flavours...and these are no exception. They're simply a bag of peanut M&M's with orange-coloured shells. Pointless really.


They tasted as moreish and addictive as you would expect from M&M's....but without any traces of orange flavour. Why they couldn't have added some is beyond me...it can't be all that difficult, and I'm sure they would fly off the shelves!

They're made by the Polish arm of Mars, so who knows what this "orange edition" is in aid of...if any of my Polish readers can enlighten me please do leave a comment!

RATING: 6 out of 10.

  1. I saw these in Home Bargains this week and got just as excited and then I realised it was only the colour that was different *yawn*. I was hoping they'd be the candy corn variety!

  2. Ah, probably leftovers from the World Cup. The Dutch team is called Oranje.

    How global ... a Dutch-themed American candy made in Poland and sold in the UK.
