Whether you see your birthday as yet another inevitable reminder of your mortality or a joyous day made for celebrating all things you, there’s always the fact that you get to eat birthday cake to mark the occasion. Because cake takes the sting out of/adds extra glory to this day, some might wish that every day could be birthday cake day. And it can be. Or rather, birthday cake-flavored M&Ms day.
Yes, birthday cake M&ms are a real thing — or rather they will be. Candyophiles (theres must be a real name for that, huh?) will have to wait until May 2014 to get their paws on these treats, reports the Candy Blog:
Delicious milk chocolate infused with birthday cake flavor creates an exciting new treat worth celebrating. Available in single serve bags and 8 ounce packages.
I know what you might be thinking: “What if my favorite kind of birthday cake is actually yellow and chocolate swirled with chocolate frosting and cinnamon gummy bears on top, with a scoop of blue moon ice cream on he side — what then, M&Ms? HUH? WHAT ABOUT ME?!?”
If so, I feel your pain, because I am thinking that exact same thing.
It’s unclear if these are going to be a permanent addition to the M&Ms family like pretzel M&ms or a limited edition flavor with the lasting power of say, a pumpkin spice M&Ms. Which yes, are also a real thing right now that we couldn’t bring ourselves to write about before due to pumpkin spice overload.
