Sweethearts on a movie date, parents potty-training their toddlers and candy lovers everywhere are rejoicing.
Starting May 2017, M&Ms will begin selling caramel-filled M&M candies nationwide, the company revealed in a press release.
The candy’s core will be smooth and soft, which is a departure from previous fillings. Hank Izzo, vice president of research and development of parent company Mars Chocolate, tells CNN, “It was a big technological challenge for us […] we had to figure out how to not make the chocolate too sticky or too soft that it could collapse.”
Caramel is not only a childhood favorite, Izzo says it’s trendy, growing and shows no sign of losing popularity.
Certainly by the way fans are reacting, he seems to be onto something.
