It’s another win for 90’s kids! For those feeling nostalgic, you may want to sit down with a cold pouch of Capri Sun, because crispy M&M’s are back. Mars Chocolate has announced that M&M's Crispy Milk Chocolate Candies will be returning to store shelves after a decade-long hiatus, and just in time to introduce them to a new generation of trick-or-treaters!
The crunchy, chocolate candies filled with crisped rice were released as a limited-edition item in 1998, and were sold until 2005 in America. They’re still available in Europe and Asia, but luckily Mars came to their senses and have introduced them back into the hands of hungry Americans.
Mars caved to the pressure of several online petitions and “We want Crispy M&M’s Back!” Facebook groups, and said that the crunchy chocolate treats are the most-requested discontinued candy that they’ve ever made.
The M&M’s come in single packs, share sizes and the 9.9 ounce King size for true crispy fanatics.
