The Mars company that makes the M&M candies have come up with something new. Introducing, the new Pretzel M&Ms. This little bits of chocolate contain a center of pretzel.
If you are a fan of salt and chocolate this one is for you. I was surprised at how much of the salt I could taste in the candy. Although, it was not a lot, I was expecting a lot less. I was worried that when they compressed the pretzel to fit inside the shell that the you would lose the salt flavor. The feeling of the pretzel is lost, but you can still experience the taste of salt and chocolate. I would not buy these again unless my favorite type of M&Ms were out of stock. They are just not for everyone, but they may be for you. I think these little candies may have their own following. Just as the other types of M&Ms have certain people that prefer them, these will be the same. I believe it was a good idea, and did not completely fail. I will give the new Pretzel M&Ms a nickel rating (see consumer product rating page).
