Mega m&m's - Triple the Chocolate!
I'm aware that tripling the size of an m&m shouldn't change the taste of the classic candy. It does, though. Strangely, the vaguely fruity taste of the shell is more prevalent in each bite. And a mysteriously fruity shell taste reminds me of Smarties, the British version of m&m's- not bad, but also not the distinct m&m flavor. Is this anomaly the result of a thicker shell to support all that chocolate? Has the ratio of shell-to-chocolate changed? And can it really make a noticeable difference? Whatever the reason, these mega m&m's simply don't taste as good to me as the classic.
