Is it too soon to start buying Valentine's Day candy?

By Andrea Beck

Valentine’s Day is still over a month away, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait to start stocking up on candy. If you want to go outside the conversation heart box, there are plenty of new Valentine’s Day themed candies that are just a bit more special. Hershey’s has already announced new lava cake flavored Kisses, and now there’s a treat for cheesecake fans too. White Cheesecake M&Ms, a favorite from years past, are back on shelves so you can start your Valentine’s snacking today.

Apparently, they’re made with white chocolate and have both white cheesecake and graham cracker crust flavors. We’re not sure how much they actually taste like cheesecake, but buying a bag of M&Ms for Valentine’s Day sure sounds a lot easier than baking an entire cheesecake.

If you’re interested in trying them for yourself, they’re available exclusively at Walmart, and only for a limited time (so make sure you grab a bag before February 14). You can buy them in stores and online, and while we’re not completely sure how to feel about these pink and white candies, Walmart reviewers sure seem to love them. One reviewer says “These are very good and do actually taste like cheesecake,” while several others wish they were available year-round.

We're definitely used to seeing crazy (and crazy-good) flavors of M&Ms, including Mexican Jalapeno Peanut, Hot Cocoa, and Hazelnut Spread. They’ve never steered us wrong before, so we’ll be trying White Cheesecake M&Ms for sure before they disappear from shelves.
