REVIEW: Campfire Smores M&M’s – The Impulsive Purchase


Many Halloween and/or campfire tales speak about one thing getting back from the lifeless. And that’s what we’ve got right here with these new Campfire Smores M&M’s.

There was a s’mores selection again in 2016, however that one had a crispy heart.

This 2023 version, however, has a milk chocolate heart with a layer of white chocolate. The s’mores facet comes from synthetic flavoring. Oh, and now the oldsters at Mars (to not be confused with the oldsters on Mars) have dropped the apostrophe in smores, and so they have determined that smores are for fall/Halloween as a substitute of summer season.

(In equity, although, I’m reviewing these in July, so the summer season connection nonetheless applies. There was even a pool toy on the Walmart show of Halloween M&M’s.)

At first, I puzzled why the crunchy texture that evoked graham crackers was dropped. However after tasting the M&M’s, I’m not even mad. It seems this back-from-the-dead taste isn’t scary in spite of everything! They actually do style like smores. The chocolate comes from chocolate, clearly, however I additionally style graham. I’m unsure if I detect marshmallow, however then once more, marshmallows don’t even have a lot of a taste. Texture-wise, it appears the M&M’s are going for the gooey a part of the smore slightly than the crunchy half, as evidenced by the gooey chocolate within the “Smores” branding.

I additionally benefit from the orange, black, and white colour scheme, which screams Halloween, greater than the orange, purple, and inexperienced “Ghoul’s Combine” of the usual flavors. The colours additionally evoke these of a smore, offered you utilize bright-orange graham crackers. (Make it occur, Honey Maid!)

In previous years right here at TIB, I’ve reviewed different Halloween M&M’s of doubtful relevance — Cookies and Screeem and Creepy Cocoa Crisp. I like these higher than the CaS, however not as a lot because the CCC.

Oh, and I in contrast the costs and sizes for the earlier seasonal M&Ms. In 2017 and 2019, they have been $3.19 for an 8-ounce bag. In 2023, they’re $3.96 for a 7.44-ounce bag.

Shrinkflation is the true monster on this scary story.
