I left for work at 4:30 this morning… leaving the comfort of beautiful Breezy Point…never thinking that within the next 15 minutes, my life would change forever.
I pulled into a Nisswa gas station (as my gas light was glaring at me), decided NOT to “pay at the pump” and actually GO INSIDE to pay this time. I grabbed a bottle of water, some cheese sticks and headed for the counter to pay for my snacks and gas… and THERE THEY WERE. Four dark green “Share Size” bags of M&Ms just sitting there WAITING for someone to see them and want to take them home. But… dark green bags? Say WHAT?! What in the world were these??? I KNOW my M&Ms and THESE were new!
I picked up a bag and read the top… “Mexican Jalapeño Peanut M&Ms!!!!” I was at a loss for words (hard to believe, I know). I don’t eat a lot of sugary treats anymore, but this was going to be a new day. I asked the gal at the counter to add them to my bill. Another employee spoke up from behind an aisle of chips and said, “they taste a little tangy, chocolaty and spicy all at the same time.” SOLD!
I got into my fully gassed vehicle and had all I could do from not busting into this little bag of yum. I had 20 minutes left in my commute…I wanted to try them so badly…but I waited to do it live on-air this morning. Even waiting until 7:50 a.m. to try them about killed me. But I did it. And when I did… I was in heaven! I love spice. I love jalapenos. I love peanut M&Ms…and they all came together in this little bag of love! Chocolaty, YES. Spicy, YES. Tangy, not so much. But I loved them!
I am guessing the gas station in Nisswa is now out of them, but I heard you can get them at a big box store in Baxter, so I think I’ll be stopping there on my way home today. The bag also says there are a few others to try ( English Toffee … and Thai Coconut), so MAYBE I will search them out, but my heart belongs to the Mexican Jalapeno Peanut M&Ms. Now and forever. SO, I hope they keep making them… I really, really hope they keep making them. Give them a try! Ole’!
