m&mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

As I approached the checkout aisle yesterday at Costco, this little box of treats caught my eye. I put it in the cart, then took it out and proceeded to the checkout. Still thinking about what the coconut m&m's might taste like... I made my way back for a box. HOW COULD I NOT BUY THEM? We are CUCKOO FOR COCONUTS after all! They aren't bad and taste a little bit like Mounds candy bars... without the chewy coconut. I actually think the packaging is pretty good and I like the bright white with the hot pink accents. It feels fresh and tropical. The brown m&m's in the tree are a cute touch, but coconuts have a green outer shell and brown inner shell. I'm just sayin'. The graphics of beach umbrellas, palm trees and hibiscus printed on each could be a bit easier to see though. They really only show up on the white ones and the brown seem to only come with m's. I'm such a sucker for something old in a new package or that has been given a new taste sensation. Sometimes it doesn't always work, but I (we) give these two (four) thumbs up.
