M&M’s vs Smarties
The clash of the colored candy. Check out which chocolate mesmerizes Kipp and leaves us craving for more.
M&M’s outer packaging is mainly brown, and slightly dull. The ‘M’ character pointing you to the logo is cute, but seems to be trying a bit too hard to look ‘cool.’ Also, once you open the packet, there’s no way of closing it again. However, the chocolates inside are way better. It boasts 6 colors- blue, yellow, dull red, green, orange and brown, and each of the chocolates has a white ‘m’. Interestingly, the proportion of yellows and oranges was much lower (five of each) compared to blues (15) and browns (11). Why are they partial to the B’s?
Though small, the M&M’s are super chocolately, crunchy, and really tasty. A quick blind test around the office found that more people favored the taste of M&M’s. “It’s more satisfying,” said one of them.
There were 55 tiny M&M’s in a 47.9 gram packet. Which is good, because a packet lasts longer, and you can pass them around to more people. But it’s bad for weight watchers, because each packet contains 235.5 kilo calories.
Each packet costs AED3.50, which we think is slightly overpriced considering that the chocolate is manufactured locally.
Final score: 22
