5 M&Ms Substitutes: Add a Sweet Twist

We love M&Ms as much as anyone, but sometimes you want to shake things up a bit. You know, add a twist to your snack game. Why settle for the same old candy all the time? Whether you’re mixing up a trail mix or just craving something new, we’ve got your back.

We’re diving into six M&Ms substitutes that’ll blow your mind. Who knew swapping candies could be this fun? We did some taste-testing and these picks crushed it. Some even gave M&Ms a run for their money.

Ready for a change? Let’s break the routine and discover new flavors together!

5 Easy Substitutes for M&Ms

For this list, we wanted to keep things simple. These are all easy-to-find, effortless swaps that won’t break the bank. Plus, they’re all just as snackable and delicious as M&Ms (if not more so). Let’s see what made the cut:

1 – Reese’s Pieces

We swapped out M&Ms for Reese’s Pieces, and wow, they definitely stood out. First off, the peanut butter flavor in these is unmistakable and totally addictive. We loved the perfect blend of creamy peanut butter with a crunchy candy shell.

Reese’s Pieces were our go-to snack during movie nights growing up. We all remember the burst of peanut butter sweetness with every bite. The flavour gets better with every piece we munch on.

They might not have the same chocolate hit as M&Ms, so it’s a different vibe.

2 – Skittles

Swapping M&Ms for Skittles makes a vibrant change. We were immediately hit with a burst of fruity flavors that danced on our tongues. Each Skittle tastes distinct – strawberry, orange, lemon, green apple, and grape.

We’ve always loved the way Skittles make our mouths tingle with their sour coating turning to sweet goodness. Unlike M&Ms, Skittles have no chocolate, offering a completely different sweet experience.

Mixing Skittles in our trail mix brightens it. They’re a fun and colorful way to switch things up.

3 – Hershey’s Kisses

We traded M&Ms for Hershey’s Kisses, and it was like a rich, chocolatey hug. Each Kiss is pure chocolate bliss, melting in our mouths instantly. They give a deeper chocolate experience than M&Ms, perfect for chocolate lovers.

We remember unwrapping them as kids, savoring each bite. Their creamy texture and rich flavor make them stand out. Hershey’s Kisses don’t have that candy-coated crunch, so the experience is smoother.

They also add a touch of elegance to any snack mix. Mixing them in shook things up for us in a delicious way.

4 – Milk Duds

As a crunchy candy swap, Milk Duds bring on the chew. They offer a rich caramel flavor that’s enveloped in smooth chocolate. This combo makes them unique.

We all remember getting them stuck in our teeth during movie nights. Their stickiness is their charm and their curse. They’re sweeter and chewier than M&Ms, perfect for those long movie marathons.

Comparing them to M&Ms, the chocolate is richer, and the caramel offers a delightful contrast. Pop one in your mouth and enjoy the long-lasting flavor. Milk Duds bring more texture to the mix, and we love it.

5 – Raisinets

Last but not least, let’s talk about Raisinets. We made the swap for M&Ms and got something totally different. Raisins covered in rich milk chocolate that melts in your mouth. The raisins give them a natural sweetness while the chocolate adds richness.

We like how they still satisfy our sweet tooth without going overboard on sugar. They’re perfect for those who enjoy a touch of fruit with their candy fix. Plus, they make us feel a little healthier since raisins are involved (even though they’re still coated in chocolate).
