Candy lovers, listen up. M&M's has announced two brand-new products: hazelnut-filled chocolate candies and five chocolate bars peppered with fan-favorite M&M's. How did M&M's just introduce chocolate bars with Minis, Peanut, Milk Chocolate, Almond, Crispy, and Crispy Mint? We're not sure. But we're obsessed.

Thanks to our friends at Mars, Daily Meal staffers were able to sample these new treats prior to their release dates.
First off, the Hazelnut Spread M&M's will join the confectioner's lineup permanently in April 2019. This "spread" is not actually capable of being slathered on toast; it looks just like regular M&M's and has a creamy chocolate-hazelnut center. Regardless, we thought it missed the mark. Taste testers opined that it tasted just like popcorn, oddly enough.
"I don't understand how they got Nutella flavor so wrong," one editor said. Though she, along with the rest of us, thought the five new M&M's-infused chocolate bars were winners. "The chocolate bars were very good. The chocolate was a decent quality and I like the texture of the M&M's and other mix-ins," she remarked.
New M&M's Bars will hit store shelves a little earlier than the Hazelnut Spread in December 2018. Unlike the former, we think this never-seen-before treat is the perfect stocking stuffer. Our favorite has to be the Crispy flavor, though. It tastes just like a NestlÃ© Crunch bar, but with creamier chocolate and a better chocolate-to-crisp ratio.
No offense to Crunch bars, but they're all crisp and the people want more chocolate! In fact, here are 20 reasons to eat it every day.
