The Pumpkin Spice Empire Takes Over M&M's, Shows No Sign of Stopping

If you listen closely, you can hear millions of people across the country ordering a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks right now. It might be close to 90 degrees in New York, but that won't stop anyone from their fulfilling their seasonal pumpkin spice dreams. The latest victim in this hysteria? M&M's.

The M&M's are a little bit bigger than your average M&M –– closer to the size of the peanut-filled ones. As much as these things weirded me out at first, the pumpkin spice edition is subtle and really not that bad. They taste more like the original milk chocolate ones with some added cinnamon. The pumpkin flavor is scant, which is probably for the best.

You can find these gems exclusively at Target. One of these 9.9 ounce bags cost me $2.66.
