Pecan Pie M&Ms Spotted At Walmart

M&Ms aren’t as aggressively into new and exotic flavors as, say, Nabisco’s Oreo cookies, but they have experimented with holiday-themed flavors like gingerbread, pumpkin spice, vanilla shake, birthday cake, and candy apple. Now they’re expanding into another pretty standard flavor in the Flavors of Fall repertoire: pecan pie M&Ms have been spotted at Walmart.

Not pecan M&Ms, of course, because that would mean figuring out how to integrate a whole new type of nut into the candy-shelled candies. These are humble chocolate candies with artificial pecan flavoring to them, probably disappointingly similar to the flavor blasted on the pecan pie Pringles that were available a few years ago.

Flavored M&Ms usually aren’t all that interesting, since there isn’t much you can do with a palette of milk chocolate and artificial flavorings. The pumpkin spice ones, for example, just had a light cinnamon flavor.
