Are you ready for some hot new M&Ms? A classic snack for filmgoers around the world, the candy/chocolate company is making a very bold move…mixing the M&Ms and popcorn. Yes, you heard correctly. Popcorn M&M’s will start to appear in stores and supermarkets all over the country in the coming weeks. It will feature the signature milk chocolate on the exterior with a crispy lining of the candy part that will taste like popcorn.
News about the new candy began surfacing earlier in the week via snack-tracking Instagram accounts. The treats will be available in three sizes — the mini, single-serving bag (1.35oz.), a regular shareable size (2.83oz.) and a massive “King size” bag (7.44 oz.)

Popcorn fans – listen up! Head out and hunt down the latest M&M's flavor – Popcorn! 🍿 Yep, these really do give off a buttery popcorn vibe (and amazing scent). They aren't your grandma's M&M's – these are a crispy rice center covered in milk chocolate with popcorn flavoring. And holy moly – these are AMAZING! We spotted them at a random tiny gas station in Florida, but they are being seen at Sheetz and other grocery stores now. We aren't sure how long they'll stick around (forever? 🤞🏻) but we hope they do! Are you giving these a shot? 😍
