My Forking Thoughts on Vanilla Cupcake M&M’s


Vanilla Cupcake M&M’s recently came out and are sold exclusively at Target Stores with the Easter Candy.

They have the usual candy shell and the center is white chocolate. They are in nursery colors of yellow, pink, pale purple and turquoise. Size-wise the candies are on the bigger plump side for M&M’s.

I open the bag and take a whiff. It smells sort of like candy corn and sort of buttery and sort of like stale frosting. I know nobody can relate with old frosting but I once was a professional cake decorator and I still remember what old frosting smells like.

I eat my first Vanilla Cupcake M&M. I think it’s very similar in taste to an actual Vanilla Cupcake. It taste just like vanilla cake mix and frosting. I do like it at first. It’s sweet like frosting and taste like buttery cake. I also like that it isn’t waxy like some of the white M&M’s have been in the past.

I eat a few more and things start to change.

I get some sort of flavor build up or chemical after taste that isn’t right.

It’s not licorice but something like licorice and rum after taste. More faint licorice than rum. It doesn’t taste like Vanilla Cupcake after a several candies.

I don’t like them anymore.

For me………The rating is…….

1/2 a Fork….OK at best…good for up to 3 pieces then pass the bag over to someone else.

The Forking Truth is that your opinion may or may not differ…..
