M&M's introduces two varieties for end of summer

HACKETTSTOWN, N.J. M&M’S Chocolate Candies announced last week that stores are now carrying two new varieties of the famous brand, M&M’S Dark Chocolate Peanut Candies and a limited edition of M&M’S Razzberry Chocolate Candies.

M&M’S first introduced M&M’S Dark Chocolate Candies and M&M’S Dark Chocolate Peanut Candies in April 2005, but for only a limited time, though more than 30,000 consumers clamored for more when the promotion ended, the company said. In response, M&M’S permanently introduced M&M’S Dark Chocolate Candies last August and is now bringing back M&M’S Dark Chocolate Peanut Candies, available nationwide on a permanent basis.

In addition, consumers can now enjoy M&M’S Razzberry Chocolate Candies, which offer the sweet flavor of raspberries as a complement to the classic M&M’S milk chocolate taste. M&M’S Razzberry Chocolate Candies are "in season" and available in stores for six weeks. They will reach their peak in September and October.

"At M&M’S, we are committed to constant innovation to create fun, great-tasting products that deliver unique experiences to our consumers," said Anibal Martini, global marketing director, M&M’S Chocolate Candies. "We are delighted to continue to grow the M&M’S brand by introducing the first-fruit flavored M&M’S Razzberry Chocolate Candies while meeting the popular growing demand of dark chocolate by re-introducing M&M’S Dark Chocolate Peanut Candies nationwide."
