Hold the phone, pause Netflix, and give us 100% of your attention right now, because we have something important to talk about. A Mexican Jalapeño Peanut M&M's flavor is hitting shelves in 2019, and we need to know if you’re down for it.
Your first reaction to this news is most likely hesitant at best, and we’re right there with you. This is far from M&M's typical new flavors, like caramel and mint. But maybe they’re onto something here. Opposites do attract, and it’s tough to get anymore dissimilar than chocolate and jalapeño peppers.
Instagram user @snackchatlive broke the news first and let us in on another secret — there are two new flavors coming next year as well. English Toffee Peanut and Thai Coconut Peanut will be joining the lineup. Sorry to anyone allergic to peanuts, because all three are filled with them.
The three new M&M varieties are part of the “internationally inspired flavors,” according to the packaging. And the yellow M&M is dressed up to go along with each of them.
It has not been announced when exactly these flavors will become available in 2019, but we’ll keep you updated when we know more.
