Right before we had a chance to run to the store, Mars confirmed what we were hoping was true. There's a new M&Ms flavor set to hit shelves and it's none other than the pecan pie variety (anyone else excited about this?!).
"The rumors are true: I'm the new face of Pecan Pie M&M'S! You'll start to see me on the shelves of your local Wal-Mart soon, but only for a limited time. – Ms. Green," the candy brand captioned a shot on Facebook Friday of the M&M bag, which shows the green M&M holding a plate of pecan pie and sitting on a haystack.
How soon? They've actually already been spotted at some stores. Consumerist posted a picture of the bags on a shelf at a Wal-Mart Wednesday, and Refinery29 reported that the new flavor will be available at other Wal-Mart locations around Halloween. So, as you might imagine, we're on the hunt.
The latest M&Ms flavor follows the limited-time candy apple and pumpkin spice flavors the company has released in the past couple of years. This go-round, M&M fans seem even more excited by the new flavor debut, and we completely get it. A chocolate pecan pie sounds pretty amazing.
