I've tried all of them. Target had the best deal on them at $3.99 (most other stores are $4.50 to $5.00).
First thing to note is that they have no crunchy shell.
They are colorful, they have this metallic painted coating though, but it's not really sweet. Kind of like that waxy coating on Junior Mints ... it takes a moment to get to the flavor.
I didn't like the fakey raspberry in the Raspberry Almond. There was a chocolate almond as well, but it was really no different that the regular M&Ms Almond (except no candy shell) that it hardly seemed worth the extra money.
The triple chocolate was interesting, but again, it was hard to discern the different chocolates ... I didn't think they were extraordinary.
The mint one was good though, I liked the white chocolate center, it was a like a decadent meltaway (but with no trans fat).
THe mocha was also interesting, I love coffee and chocolate and no one else makes something like this. The chocolate is soft and fudgy. It was the one that disappeared first, so I must have liked it.
