I found them somewhere, Walgreens I think. They were pretty good.

We have the peanut butter/strawberry down here. Not as bad as expected.

Yes, I found them at Walgreen's. They're rather bigger than regular ones, have a sweet coconut flavor but no actual coconut flakes in them.

Bummers.  I was hoping it contained bits of crunchy toasted coconut.

Keep an eye out - Hershey's is expanding the Pieces line (Reese's Pieces) later this year. They'll have one called Almond Joy Pieces which will be milk chocolate with almond & coconut bits in a candy shell.

I guess that is artificial flavoring?

I have been all over and cant find them, all the stores I asked said they were sold out very fast.

A co-worker managed to get some at one of the local Walmarts after I looked all over for them and could not find them. Passed them around to a few people.
 
General consensus was way too sweet. I ate five or six pieces from a snack-sized bag, but didn't think I could finish the bag.
 
Glad I tried them, but wouldn't go out of my way for them again.

I bought some for the wife at Walgreens.  They don't appeal to me but the wife likes most things coconut.  She thought they were just "okay".
Also, today I saw them at WalMart.

I had heard about a white chocolate M&M (right about the time the cherry M&M's were drawing to a close), and I kept askign for it, but it never seemed to show up.

Coconut M&Ms and the Wild Cherry M&MS are going to be permanent. You can expect them back on shelves around the end of the year.

Mars is bringing back quite a few of their former Limited Edition items:

Whoa I had no idea they made those flavors. Very interesting! I will have to keep an eye out for them.

Nicest use of my initials since B.U.M. Equipment clothes! I bet they just use coconut oil because it's cheap and are conning us.

Thanks for the link. I'm glad to see the Java Twix are coming back, I thought they were great.
