If you guys are anything like us here @ChocMission whenever you hear the word M&M's, packets of small candy coated chocolate pieces will come to mind. Well hold that thought there folks because if you live in America that wouldn't be totally accurate now! Why you ask!? Because faithful ChocolateMission readers as crazy as this sounds, M&M's also come in a bar format in the US. How do we know about this crazyness!? Well we have great friends @AmericanSoda who have supplied us with all the great and good M&M's products for us to try.

The M&M's Milk Chocolate Bar comes in a 42.5g format and is presented in a very slick looking shiny plastic wrapper. The packet is attractive on the eye and includes some fun looking illustrations featuring the M&M's characters. Unsealing the plastic wrapper the bar inside looked similarly pleasant on the eye and broke apart into three sizeable pieces that had small, colourful M&M's dotted throughout.

Aroma wise the bar emanated some lovely chocolatey smells that were certainly stronger and more pleasant than the scentless standard M&M's. Breaking the bar apart the chocolate snapped with a fresh sounding crack and without any issue of any small M&M's escaping. After much admiration the taste testing proceeded and we were pleasantly surprised at the standard of the milk chocolate. Generally it was less sweet than we expected, even the bites where the candy coated M&M's pieces were located. The bar provided a more satisfying take on the M&M's experience, it was a bar which when eaten in its entirety was wholly enjoyable.

Overall despite the milk chocolate not being of the highest quality we have ever tasted the team really liked this differentiated M&M's variant. As a team we love M&M's of all different flavours but this bar format made for a more substantial take on a snack that can at times be accused of lacking a bit in the sustenance department. If you know of any M&M's fans why not surprise them with this M&M's Milk Chocolate Bar!? We think it will certainly surprise any M&M's aficionado who thinks they know their M&M's inside and out! Take a look @AmericanSoda whilst they have the stock in and let us know what you think of it.
