I Tried M&M’s New Neapolitan Ice Cream Flavor

Could these little chocolate candies truly taste like Neapolitan ice cream?

Neapolitan has always been my favorite flavor of ice cream. I love that you get to have three flavors at once (chocolate, strawberry and vanilla), and the color combination is just so pretty!

So I was quite chuffed when I heard that M&M’s unveiled a Neapolitan flavor just in time for spring. However, it took me a bit of time to find them in stock at my nearby grocery stores or my local Target. But I refused to give up on my hunt — Neapolitan M&Ms WOULD be mine!

I even looked on Amazon, where they are available , but you have to pay for a pack of four — including other flavors like white chocolate, which I think is an abomination. So, if you want to try these bad boys, just keep your eyes peeled at Target, as they are a spring exclusive there.

When I opened the Neapolitan M&M’s, I first noticed how gorgeous they are. This might be a strange thing to say about a candy, but can someone please make a nail polish color that looks like these pastel pink M&Ms?

The next thing I noticed was the smell. Right away, you get a whiff of the easily identifiable smell of Neapolitan ice cream. It made me feel like it was summertime and I had just walked into a ice cream shoppe.

Now it was time for the taste test. Would these little chocolate candies truly taste like Neapolitan ice cream?

I took a bite, then several more. My verdict? Heck, yes, they do taste just like my favorite ice cream! They really packed authentic vanilla, strawberry and chocolate flavor into each bite.

While I have to admit there is a bit of a chemical taste, overall these new M&Ms are simply delicious. I’m impressed by how closely the flavor resembles the iconic ice cream dish.

If you want to scoop up these new M&Ms, here’s a word to the wise: They are only available for a limited time, so if you try them and love this flavor, you better stock up!
