Imagine my surprise when I spotted these new Peanut M&M's Intense 65% Cacao on the shelves of a Poundland store for the bargain price of 3 packets for £1. I had never seen this variety of M&M's before so I quickly snapped them up. A quick search on Google revealed that these had been released earlier this year in France. Who knew Poundland could be a treasure trove of imported chocolates!
I'm not a huge fan of dark chocolate myself but my husband is quite keen on it and he also loves Peanut M&M's so I was extremely pleased with my bargain.
These M&M's have 5 main colours; red, orange, purple, yellow and a lovely turquoise. My pack had quite an uneven selection of these colours and I would have liked more of the turquoise ones.
Inside the colourful shell, the chocolate is a very dark brown in colour, almost black. The chocolate flavour is just as I expected, rich and intense but sweetened by the sugary coating covering the chocolate. The peanut inside perfectly suits the dark chocolate flavour and helps to break up the intensity. Even though I don't usually go for dark chocolate I did enjoy these and would definitely buy them again.
Let me know if you find any interesting imports in your local discount stores!
