Hazelnut M&M’s Have A Brand-New Recipe

When Mars first rolled out Hazelnut Spread M&M’s last year, people were pretty excited. After all, hazelnut + chocolate = a winning combo. But apparently you can improve upon perfection after all.

The company just revealed that Hazelnut Spread M&M’s have a new recipe (it’s emblazoned on the package and everything) and Instagram account @JunkBanter has the details.

“Fudge Brownie M&M’s are the new kid on the block, but @mmschocolate has very quietly improved the recipe to the Hazelnut M&M’s as well,” they wrote. “Where did y’all stand on these before? I feel like the response was a little underwhelming, and apparently M&M’s agreed.”

The new filling is a darker brown color—likely due to an increase in chocolate, @JunkBanter wrote. The M&M’s also taste “much more like Nutella than it did before,” they wrote, adding, “an improvement for sure! If you didn’t try the original recipe or thought they were lackluster, now’s a great time to give them a go.”

Reactions in the comments were definitely mixed. “Can’t wait to try. The first ones were not very hazelnutty,” one person wrote. “I feel like the old ones tasted like a standard m&m. Excited to see how these hold up against the old recipe,” another said.

But some people said they preferred the OG version: “I’m not a fan of the new hazelnut recipe! I was so disappointed when I bought the big bag and they weren’t as good as the old ones,” someone said. “I personally already liked them before,” another person confirmed.

There’s really only one way to settle this debate, you know: Try ‘em out for yourself.
