This is a die hard memory of my Childhood. Peanut M&Ms have always been my favorite candy.  With Halloween just passing, my kids all knew to share a bag or two with Mom.  The manufacturer is now trying to cater more to the adults as well by offering the dark chocolate version. Although these are good, the regular ole peanut M&Ms are still a favorite. These can be used in a variety of recipies as well as a tasty snack. I can't say a healthy snack, because they do have sugar and calories. But they are a nice treat every now and then.

Peanuts have a strong, distinctive, chewy texture and flavor that pretty much overpowers any other flavor.  Chocolate is rich and creamy and suckable and should not be adulterated with anything else except maybe caramel.  Putting peanuts together with chocolate is an unpleasant idea gone worse by contamination.  I can't be the only person who thinks this, as every time I put out the multipack of Hershey's Krackle, Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate and Mr. Goodbar, the one never selected is Mr. Goodbar.  M & M's without peanuts wins out as well.  Now why don't you put out chocolate covered dried cranberries?  A much better combination.

    Comments about Mars M&M's Peanut:

    Peanut M&Ms..how can anyone not love these. They've been around forever and in my opinion the best of all the m&m varieties. I've been eating these since childhood. They are one of the best chocolate candies out there. I prefer them over regular because I love the combination of the salty peanut and the chocolate candy shell. Great dessert or snack anytime. I give out the snack packs on Halloween and also keep them in the house for a sweet attack and portion control. I'd eat a large bag if I had it in front of me. They always seem fresh, maybe got a stale peanut a few times in my life but so rare. They are the perfect sized snack. I notice the bright yellow wrapper every time I'm in the candy isle at the store. They have been around forever and will stay around because they are made by a great brand, they never change and they have a great following. They also taste delicious! Yum yum yum.

    Mars M&M's Peanut: The Perfect Afternoon Snack!

    By 

    from Pittsburgh, PA

    Comments about Mars M&M's Peanut:

    Even though I love regular M&M candies, there are times when I want something a little 'more' from my snack. The peanut version has a generous chocolate coating that doesn't melt in your hand; there's a perfect coating to each peanut and a single serve bag (1.74 ounces) only has 250 calories. To some people that might seem like a lot but if you are only having a couple here and there throughout the day it's a lot easier for your body to deal with the sugar.

    Since I am a diabetic I have to watch the sweets but I do indulge in a third of a serving (about nine pieces) here and there. It's a satisfying taste and because there's a hard shell to the pieces, you get a nice crunch when you bite into one plus the extra crunch from the peanut.

    You can get these in the small single serve bags, mini fun packs and the family sized bags. I like to use these on cupcakes as an edible decoration but they are amazing to use on the vertical sides of cakes for Easter because they look like tiny little eggs. Since there is a peanut inside all that chocolate you are going to want to make sure that younger kids aren't running around when eating these; the peanuts can present a choking hazard. If you have any food allergies, please read the ingredient list.

    Since these contain peanuts you have to check the "best before" date on the bag of the bag or package; bags that are more than a couple weeks old could have a rancid taste to them from the natural oil of the peanut. I have only had this happen a couple times but it's a taste that sticks with you and something that you don't quickly forget.

    Mars M&M's Peanuts

    Comments about Mars M&M's Peanut:

    There is no type of chocolate in the world that I have not eaten - I have even been known to try a dog-choc just to check I wasn't missing out! Mars M&M's Peanuts are definitely in my top 10 but they could never be number one with the vast array of artificial colors listed in their ingredients. Never the less, the marriage of chocolate and peanuts is pure genius in my opinion. The mix of savory and sweet, the bright, vibrant colors and the fun, party-like atmosphere that M&M's Peanuts help to create are vital components to a successful get together with friends. I can't help but bite a few half way through just to appease my desire to see the layers of goodness; peanuts, milk chocolate and sugary, multi-colored crunchy coating. In spite of the artificial colors, I do buy them for my children on special occasions but they could never be an everyday treat - I fear my children would be swinging from the chandeliers!

    I love the peanuts.

    Comments about Mars M&M's Peanut:

    The peanuts and chocolate are a great combination of ingredients. They are not too sweet and are not salty at all, so they make a good snack for most times. I like to use them for parties or after meal snacks. I would definitely recommend trying these out if you haven't already.

    Classic Candy

    Comments about Mars M&M's Peanut:

    Mars Peanut M&M's has been one of my favorite candies since they came out. M&M's hard candy coating paired with creamy milk chocolate and peanuts taste so good it's hard not to fall in love with these nutty little candies. I have even incorporated these candies into a couple of my favorite cookie recipes.

    One of the better changes to a classic

    Comments about Mars M&M's Peanut:

    M&Ms are great. There was no need to add or change them, but this product actually was a great change to the original. I actually prefer the peanut variety to the original. My father kept these in the refrigerator and would grab a handful after dinner each night. This became a habit of our family so they hold a weird nostalgic place.

    Sweet. And crunchy

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Mars M&M's Peanut:

    Mars Peanut M &M's are probably my favorite candies. I love chocolate and I love peanuts, so what better combination than this. I also enjoy eating plain M&M's but peanut M&M's have something extra special to them. I love opening a bag of Mars peanut M&M's and looking at all the colors and thinking which color I am going to eat at that moment. Peanut M&M's are so good I usually finish the bag in one sitting although I always say I am only going to eat a few. My mom also loves peanut M&M's. she is always buying a few bags and tells everyone they are for the grandkids. WE all know they are for her, but WE don't say anything. I completely understand why she's always buying Mars peanut M&M's. Peanut M&M'sare good by themselves or with plain yogurt or vanilla Ice cream. They make for excellent toppings. I use peanut M&M's as toppings on cupcakes and cakes. They say they do not melt in your hand, but that is not true. They do melt in your hand, but that doesn't stop me from eating them.

    My favorite type of M&M.

    By

    Comments about Mars M&M's Peanut:

    My favorite type of M&M's are the peanut M&M's! The best part about them is the lovely peanut on the inside! There is much more peanut than M&M which is what I love! The peanut is complimented so well by the thin layer of chocolate and then the crunch of the candy shell. It is the best peanut and chocolate combination ever behind Reese's!

    Really good!

    Comments about Mars M&M's Peanut:

    I really like M&M's Peanut candies! They are much better and tastier than the plain, regular M&M's. They consist of a nice-sized peanut with chocolate enclosed in a crunchy, colored shell. I really like that they use nice-sized peanuts. The peanuts always have a rich flavor. I love the salty and sweet combination. These make a very filling snack and I used to eat them between my college classes all of the time.

    pretty good, another M&M classic

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Mars M&M's Peanut:

    Peanut M&M's are great. They're not my favorite candy, but I certainly enjoy them. They're actually my husband's favorite so we have them around quite often. They're a classic M&M flavor, having been around for as long as I can remember. The only think I kind of don't like about them is how hard they are. Sometimes I feel like I being mean to my teeth if I crunch down on too many of these (besides just the sugar factor). I like a softer chocolate product that I can suck on and let in melt in my mouth.
