A new limited Edition Flavor of M&M’s Candy is available at Target Stores. They call this new flavor BOO-tterscotch. It’s a mix of white chocolate and butterscotch.
If your under a certain age and are not from Philadelphia chances are you don’t really know what butterscotch is suppose to taste like. You just never see anything Butterscotch anywhere.
Butterscotch is very similar to caramel…….
Caramel is made from white sugar milk or cream and sometimes butter and gets cooked till it’s slightly burnt.
Butterscotch is made from brown sugar and butter, sometimes cream and only gets cooked to the soft ball stage and it’s sweeter and doesn’t have that burnt taste.
If you are from Philadelphia you might have grown up with this popular Philadelphia PA Treat called Butterscotch Krimpets made by TastyKake.
The Butterscotch Krimpet is spongecake topped with a sweet butterscotch frosting. People of all ages liked this in Philadelphia.
The only other thing I can think of that’s Butterscotch are those hard awful cheap candies that nobody likes. Somehow I remember those candies….I don’t recall where I tasted them………….school?………candy from my mom’s purse?……….My grandma’s candy dish?
Pardon for the flashback……and back to M&M’s.
When you open the bag it actually smells kind of like butterscotch…..the sweet kind like a TastyKake (not an old lady hard candy).
The Candies are coated with hard sugar shells typical of M&M’s but in old fashioned refrigerator colors of Harvest gold, 70s Dark Espresso Brown and Kitchen Ivory White. I think that colors of Burnt Orange and Avocado Green ……would work well here.
Usually the white chocolate M&M’s should be avoided. They often are very waxy, greasy and lack a smooth texture and a natural flavor.It seems that M&M’s has fixed the problem of the cheap white chocolate taste and feel because these M&M’s seem almost buttery and do melt in your mouth and don’t seem waxy. They actually taste like Butterscotch mixed with Quality full fat buttery White Chocolate with some sort of lacing of a liquor taste….maybe it’s a touch of something like rum or whiskey…?….I think it’s something like rum because that little taste reminds me of eggnog…… Anyway these M&M’s actually taste good! 🙂
White Boo-terscotch M&M’s are Shockingly Good and Worth a Fork!
