Peanut Butter Speckled Egg M&M’s Are The Easter Candy You Need

Move aside, Vanilla Cupcake.

Though the Internet had a collective freakout over M&M’s new Vanilla Cupcake flavor, there’s another Easter flavor that we’re even more excited about. Introducing Peanut Butter Speckled Eggs—they’re downright addictive.

Are they widely different from regular Peanut Butter M&M’s? No. But why mess with perfection? With the peanut butter filling, the milk chocolate coating, and the crispy outer shell, Peanut Butter M&M’s are the perfect balance of crunchy and creamy. Plus, because they’re plumper than a classic M&M, you’re more likely to enjoy them slowly and thoughtfully, as opposed to gobbling up the whole bag by the handful. To give them seasonal flair, the Easter M&M’s are egg-shaped, and come in an assortment of speckled pastel colors (to resemble real bird’s eggs).

Technically, the flavor isn’t new for 2017. However, the 1.3-ounce bags were so popular in 2016 that the brand introduced a new “sharing size” for 2017. That’s right—you can buy these babies in 2.83-oz bags (and the sharing part is entirely up to you). Each bag is $1.50, and they’re available online and at retailers nationwide.

Curious about the rest of the lineup? In addition to Vanilla Cupcake and Peanut Butter Speckled Egg, the company is also debuting White Chocolate candies in pastel colors. And if you have leftover Easter candy this year, try tossing them into these fun desserts.
