If a new candy comes out I must try it.
 
This one was a bit of an enigma.  I've seen them advertised and other friends have talked about them but they are no where to be found.
 
M&Ms with Candy Corn?  The good, the bad and.....?
 
Supposedly they're only available at Walmart.  I went to my Walmart which is 16 miles door to door.  After searching the many candy aisles and displays (It's Halloween, folks) I found them no where.
 
I asked the help...  "Do you carry the new combination M&M and Candy Corn candy?"
 
The help...  "We have combination candy for Halloween." 
 
I asked other people working there and I basically got the same answers which equated to.... I don't understand your question and I am giving you an answer just to give you an answer....  or... huh?  I should have known better.  Silly me.
 
This happened over 3 visits to Walmart.  I gave up until a friend sent me a bag from Defiance, OH.
 
I have no earthly idea why Candy Corn is even mentioned on the bag unless they have a patent on the orange, yellow white color combination.  No way in Hell do these have any other resemblance to Candy Corn other than color.
 
Wait?!!!  Does overly sweet count?
 
If I look at them as only white chocolate covered in a hard candy shell, they are what they are.
 
Would I buy them?  No!  I like white chocolate, but these just don't do it.

      I am so particular when it comes to white chocolate..dont really like it much. These did not appeal to me at all, and I wholeheartedly thank you Mar for doing the research for us all!
