Minty oishi

Mint-Tastic M&M’s are dark chocolate candies coated in pretty minty green shells. I love the colour combo of dark green, light green and white, and the taste combo of dark chocolate and peppermint. They are like after-dinner mint M&M’s. These are on sale in Sydney now!

Did you know that your average pack of M&M’s has a scientific formula for the mix of colours? Each pack is 22.2% blue, 16.7% orange, red, green, brown, and 11.1% yellow. There’s even a graph. Blue was added as a colour in 1995, after 10 million people voted for a new M&M (the other options were pink or purple). There’s an urban myth about green M&Ms being an aphrodisiac, and sometimes show up in green-only packs for Valentine’s Day in America. Above, at the American M&M’s website you can order any colour combination you like and even have your own words and photos, or favourite Disney characters printed on the candy, instead of ‘m’!

    Checked the website and they deliver outside the US but not custom printed ones. I have the feeling the prices will be exorbitant though.

    Alisha, thanks! That’s pretty cool that you can order the personalised colours and have them sent here! I know in America they have m&ms shops where you can make your own mix of about 20 colours, there’s one in las vegas. I wonder why they won’t deliver the printed ones here…

    Hi there! The mint M&Ms in this post are from Australia, but most of the KitKats and candy are from Japan. You can order them on eBay from the seller Jappy11

    Good luck šŸ™‚
