It seems to be a bit of a new trend with the folks at M&M's. It's all about flavouring their chocolate to add a little twist to these little crunchy treats. I have to say that so far (and including these) I've been pretty satisfied with the taste of these. The cherry in this case was a deep cherry flavour, it wasn't super realistic but it was pretty good. It might have been interesting if maybe they added a little sour taste to these, but who knows.

I am a little disappointed though with the fact that it looks like their going down the simple repetitive role of just slapping a flavoured chocolate in their already established candy. Why not throw some real cherries in these, or something else perhaps. They haven't even cracked many of the nuts that might be awesome in their candy shell. The pun was so on purpose.

These are ok, but I sure hope there not the first of a long line of kind of lame ideas.
