M&M’s Has Unveiled a New, Limited Edition Flavour: Salted Caramel

We *need* to stock up on these limited edition treats.

M&M's Salted Caramel

We love it when a classic treat comes through with a new flavour for us to try. M&M’s have been a staple for snacking on-the-go/combining with your popcorn at the movies/pouring into your mouth all in one go when no one’s looking for years, and they’ve just launched a limited edition flavour: M&M’s Salted Caramel.

The combo of salt and caramel has proved to be a huge trend in South Africa. You can buy salted caramel flavoured yoghurt, cappuccino sachets, milkshakes, ice cream, and now, M&M’s.

‘Salted caramel is a major trend across snacking categories and the fastest-growing consumer taste in chocolate, so we are excited to introduce South Africans to this delicious combination and hope they are ready to indulge in the new soft and melting caramel flavour,’ says Mars Confectionery Senior Brand Manager, Ashleigh Sanderson.

The limited-edition pack of M&M’s have a caramel centre surrounded by the milk chocolate we all know and love, and is enclosed in their trademark hard candy shell. They’re sold in packs that M&M’s say are ideal for sharing, but we’re more likely to be found hiding them in our desk drawer, being extra quiet with the packet so no one asks for one.
