Decline in peanut m&m flavor

published

I have noticed a definite change of flavor which is less pleasing. I can no longer be addicted. Sad! My normal purchases are of the 30 ounce bags. Why has a change been made?

Purchased in for $10.99.

Disgusting

published

Another recipe change and I’m not here for it. Bring back the old recipe as this taste is just beyond disgusting. Who would even spend a dollar on wax coating, stale peanuts and horrific after taste?

Purchased in at Coles for $6.50.

The competitor tastes and smell like vomit. M&M's taste chalking and no chocolate taste.

published

Did get a refund. Terrible quality. I won't buy again. There was no chocolate flavor. I used to buy these all the time. Peanuts were stale. I threw them away.

Purchased in for $6.

Bought 2022 - thought I picked up a peanut butter m&m special

published

I used to like peanut m&m but I don't like peanut butter typically. This new bag tastes exactly like peanut butter and it's so disappointing. Please change it back or I am done with this candy.

Purchased in at ACME 1 for $4.99.

Not the same.

published

So another company changed a product for the worse! Remember when coke changed the recipe?? For what reason would you do something so stupid. All to save a buck but still charge more! Unfortunately this will be my last bag. I noticed a difference a few weeks ago. Thinner candy shell and the chocolate tastes different let me know when you change it back!!

Purchased in for $9.

What has changed?

published

Just bought a bag for Valentine’s Day- I feel like the recipe has changed and not for the better. This WAS one of my favorites and I today I find these are no longer an enjoyable flavor- at first I noticed a flavor change and consistency issue with the peanuts. I had a few more to figure it out. The candy coating seems thicker and waxy tasting and the chocolate tastes a bit like coconut oil. Whatever was done to these- PLEASE change it back!

I used to love peanut m&ms… now the candy lacks taste, the chocolate is average, and taste peanuts stale. Flavour, gone!

published

I consider my tastebuds to be very good, and whatever the company had done to the recipe is clearly the wrong move. Please return the recipe to its old recipe, happy to pay more as we all know the recipe change it to increase the bottom line, but for how long? Fact, I’m not buying them again.

Hits the spot!

published

I love these to just have as a little treat, they are crunchy with the candy outside, milky chocolate & the peanut go together perfectly!! They are a great treat as the peanut gives you a bit more energy. The whole family loves them!

Again another classic ruined by greedy corporations, who can't not have the next super yatch, who slash quality for profits, let's just say the founders of your brands would almost be embarrassed by where you have led your greed, another failure.

Revolting

published

These used to be good. Whatever they have done has changed them for the worse. The shell is so sugary and the peanut is a soggy mess that doesn’t crunch. Will not be buying these ever again.

Gross!

published

Hadn’t bought a pack in a couple of years and geez they’ve changed for the worse. Won’t be buying these again. The shell is a weird texture, the peanuts are soggy and the chocolate filling is way too icky sweet. What have they done? It used to be so nice.

Purchased in at Woolworths.

New recipe is bad

published

So sweet it’s difficult to eat. Outer shell is so tough and crunchy. It’s also rough to the touch, and not shiny anymore. Cannot taste peanuts inside. Will not purchase again.

Used to love them

published

I have always had a bowl beside my chair and nibble a few after dinner. Never again! My partner bought a box for me yesterday and after they were opened, had a handful and could not believe how bad they tasted! Going back to supermarket for a refund. Not sure what the problem was, maybe very old peanuts?? Absolutely revolting! Had to clean my teeth to try and get rid of the taste. Will find another sweet as a substitute.

No it's just food colouring not flavored ones so they all taste the same....yummy of course!!! The best ones are the Peanut Butter orange packets which are available in the USA. Enjoy!
