Despite the fact that 2016 was universally regarded as one of the worst years in a long, long time, there's no denying that it was full of some incredible foodie delights. From the joys of freakshakes to the ever-expanding world of jerky, 2016 had something for everyone.
So, as our thoughts turn to the brand spanking new year ahead, our minds automatically turn to one thing: food. And out of all the kinds of food available to us on God's green earth, what's the majority of the population's favourite? Candy, of course. Although we like to try and deny our childish taste buds that long sought-after sugary hit, deep down, all we're after is a new candy flavour to delight the little kid in all of us.
Thankfully, M&M's are about to totally come through for us in 2017. That's because there are swirling rumours about the release of a brand new, limited edition white cheesecake flavour just in time for Valentine's Day. There's nothing more romantic than a big green chocolate candy holding a plate of cheesecake and a red rose, right?
The brand new flavour was first spotted by Instagram account The Impulsive Buy, an account notorious for discovering tasty treats that are absolutely terrible for you. But hey, who could honestly say they would be able to resist the temptation of cheesecake flavoured M&M's? It's like all your childhood dreams came true at once.
And if you're wondering where you can stock up on these bad boys, it looks like Walmart is your best bet. Since the packaging looks distinctly Valentine's day themed, I'm willing to bet they'll be ramping up distribution from February. So keep your eyes peeled, candy addicts, because the future is here, and it looks delicious.
