M&M's Premiums "Triple Chocolate"


The basic concept of this treat really appealed to me. I thought it would be a really cool idea for every candy company to make a special edition of their bars in a high-end way. Why not try a better quality chocolate, a different candy, something to give whatever you're making a little extra class? I think most people would agree that your average chocolate bar could be taken to such great heights with the right ingredients.

The idea is fantastic; this particular delivery however was a little disappointing. First of all, the chocolate was so imbalanced. I figure a triple chocolate treat should have equal parts of each chocolate, if not in quantity then definitely in flavour. All I could taste in these was the milk chocolate. The white and dark chocolate where just thin shells around a normal glob of milk chocolate. It was disappointing to say the least, and seemed a little cheap too.

That takes me to the shell. Or lack of shell to be exact. I'm not sure why you would market M&Ms and get rid of the candy shell. Sure, you want the chocolate to shine, but the shell in an M&M is essential. In this case it was so thin I couldn't even taste or feel it at all. Finally, the biggest disappointment is that the chocolate really didn't seem that much better than the quality you might find in a standard M&M. I was expecting something really special and I got something that was just ok.
