As an old person, I can still remember when M&Ms didn’t have any red candies inside, due to a scare about carcinogenic dyes.  But lately (thanks to my wife, who love ’em), there have been Ms in my house again, and it’s amazing how many varieties there are: Fudge brownie Ms, peanut butter Ms, pretzel Ms, clams and tobaccky Ms, the whole nine.  Still, for my money, there’s nothing better than a good ol’ fashioned peanut M&M, which is not only voiced by Tenzin from ‘The Legend of Korra‘ but has the perfect balance of crunch and squish.  Sadly, Mrs. Matthew loves the horrific caramel or white chocolate varieties, leading to today’s polyunsaturated query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) will eat pretty much any flavor that doesn’t try to seem sexy in the advertising, because that’s just WRONG, asking: Which variety of M&Ms is the best?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    Original is best. It’s classic for a reason.

    One of the worst things in Canada is realizing that “Smarties” there are M&M knock-offs instead of rolls of tiny sweet/tart wafers.

  2. Wait…. What???? White Chocolate Variety?????? UMMMMMMM anyway you can send some to me cuz I have never seen them up here in Canada and am a white chocolate lover……
    PS. I have to agree with your wife on this one, adding in the almond variety to my list.
