I swear, every time I go to Trader Joe’s right now I find more and more items that they have added for the holidays. The latest are these M&M/Smartie look-a-likes that I could not pass up. I think the bottle was $6, but it is a pretty cool bottle, and comes with a decent amount of pieces.
The candies come in red, green, and white for the holidays, and have all of these images on them (these are all of the color/image variations).
Best part, no Red40. Thank you TJ’s.
The taste is somewhere between M&M’s and Smarties (being better than M&M’s made in the US but not as good as Smarties), but these are a nice alternative for when I cannot acquire any Smarties. Only problem, I have never seen these outside of the holiday season, and who knows if they will be back in future years.
