Here's what we thought: first of all there is no mention of coconut in the ingredients, huh? Okay so maybe there is coconut flavor or something, but no actual coconut= disappointing. It's kind of like a regular m&m only the chocolate inside is flavored with coconut. They are bigger than regular m&m's though, they are more the size of peanut butter m&m's, which if I'm being honest I'd tell you that I bought a package of those too, and side by side the peanut butter m&m's won hands down. Travis' reaction to the coconut m&m's was that they tasted like tanning lotion smells. Which I love the way tanning lotion smells and every now and then (especially in the winter) I'll take out a bottle and close my eyes and just give it a smell. It takes me right back to the beach and makes me feel warm all over. If you like that maybe you'll like these m&m's. I liked them alright (maybe 2.5/5 stars), but they would have been even better if they'd have had actual coconut in them, and they really would be better if they were dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate. I'm a dark chocolate girl myself. So I guess I'll stick to an almond joy every now and then, and won't waste too many more calories on these babies. They were fun to try though and especially fun when you're sharing a bag with your sweet heart after your kids have gone to bed.
Speaking of tanning lotion, if you want to smell the beach without the calories I highly recommend this: Tropical Jasmine Scent from Sephora.
When you wear this scent you'll be instantly transported to this (only you'll feel skinnier and tanner, I promise)
Okay so this is hard to find for some reason. We don't have a Sephora at our mall here, but I bought this online a while back, and now when I look they don't seem to have the oil anymore in this scent. But go with the body wash or body butter, you won't be disappointed. They used to have this in a lotion too, that is what I first had, but then I bought some oil when there was no lotion, now there's no oil, what's up with that? Dear Sephora, bring back tropical jasmine in all forms! Thank you. Sincerely, Nancy
