As an adult, I do not condone the consumption of lurid candy produced en masse, dyed in technicolour, and marketed by menacing cartoon characters. Unfortunately, I do possess an infantile appreciation for brightly-coloured distractions. And look! M&M Almond!
Lately I've been hitting up a range of nutty M&M products, having recently been introduced to M&M Peanut Butter (not simply peanut) by a friend (bad friend, bad!). M&M Peanut Butter is only available in specialty stores, but I found M&M Almond in the city Woolworths last weekend, which makes it a significantly more economically viable treat. These taste like regular M&Ms (i.e. far from the best or worst chocolate in the world) but with whole almonds within. Not a bad result.
Plus the red ones double up as excellent cosmetics. Well I remember rubbing them vigorously into my cheeks and lips until I learnt to raid mum's make-up drawer like a normal pre-teen. The innocence of youth indeed.
A more mature post will materialise within the week. In the meantime, did you ever have a favourite colour M&M?
