For an entirely new flavor, try out Thai Coconut Peanut m&m's. I'm not sure they agreed with my sensibilities of delicious, but they're something different from the rest of the vast m&m's line. The coconut and peanut make a robust flavor combination, with a lot of savory mixed with the sweet. I'd be curious to see people's reactions to these.
As for the flavor vote: British Toffee has my heart!

Someday I will boast that I have tried every flavor of Pocky. This dream, however, is far off because there are so many varieties of the brand's cookies dipped in chocolate. This one, the Coffee & Cocoa flavor, is meant to resemble the flavor of a Tiramisu. A chocolate biscuit is dipped in a deep coffee flavored chocolate and the combination is terrific. It's part of a 3-box series depicting schoolgirls.
The most info I could find online is that the set commemorates the end of the Heisei era in Japan. If any readers know more about the set, please let me know!

Mmm, the key to these Jelly Belly Candy Cones is that the graham flavored mellowcreme candy that is incorporated into each cone is tasty. It's not too strong but lends a graham element to each ice cream cone inspired flavor. Special shout-out to the delicious orange sorbet cone flavor.The mint chocolate chip cone is a close second. The only hitch is that orange and mint chocolate chip don't really go together so there are some weird mash-ups if you eat more than one candy at a time. Jelly Belly, let's get more mellocremes on the market!

We all have a fever for Game of Thrones and dragons these days. Winter came, we're down two dragons, and I need some snacks to get through the rest of this final nail-biting season. 7-Eleven's in-house brand 7-Select has brought us Dragon Gummies, in three fire-wrought shapes and three defiantly non-firey flavors--blood orange, strawberry dragon fruit, and killer kiwi. The blood orange is great --basically orange. The strawberry dragon fruit is entirely strawberry flavored--the dragon fruit is in name only. And the killer kiwi is fine although I would never have guessed that the flavor profile was of the kiwi variety. Fun to bring to a Game of Thrones viewing, even if not the tastiest gummies on the market.

How did Hazelnut Spread m&m's not exist before? We've been going through a collective Nutella obsession in America for the last few years, acting like it's something new even though it's been around and perfect in its own right since the 1940's. On a personal note, I don't prefer a hazelnut spread to pure chocolate ever--it's just not my personal go-to flavor. But I appear to be one of the few people who feels this anti-hazelnut-chocolate bias. If you do enjoy Nutella, these m&m's will rock your world. A warm buttery taste of hazelnut infuses the chocolate cream center of each oversized m&m. Run to get a package or 12 while they're in stores--definitely worth a try!
(No score due to anti-hazelnut-chocolate bias)
