Transformers Strawberried Peanut Butter M&M's: Do You Dare?

I can honestly say I've never had to ponder a grammatical question about candy before until today. But the new "Transformer Strawberried Peanut Butter M&M's" have arrived.

Yes, "strawberried." I'm sitting here thinking, that's an adjective, right? It's not a verb or an adverb ... I think. (And I'm supposedly an editor by trade. Bwahaha!) I could call the Necco Door Neighbors-- they'd certainly know-- but I'm going to stick with adjective.

Anyhow, you don't really care about that, do you? What you're saying is, "Eww. That sounds gross." Am I right? Because that's what I said, and what Mr. Goodbar said, and what No-Nuts said. I was the only one brave enough to try them. (No-Nuts, of course, couldn't for medical reasons.)

You know what? They're not bad, actually. They're red, brown and yellow with red speckles, and irregular in size. Some are big and fat, others are smaller and flatter. I kind of like that, actually. Makes 'em feel homemade. As for the taste: the initial hit is strawberry, then peanut butter, then slight chocolate. If I liked strawberry, these would be a big hit. Someone mentioned that it's not unlike having a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with the added bonus of chocolate. I just have to wonder, though, who came up with the idea of strawberry? It seems so wrong.

I think the von Schokolats would really like these. How about you? Have you tried them? What do you think?

Not only do they sound weird, they sound super-weird.

I haven't tried 'em, but probably only because I haven't spotted them yet. I'd probably try them, though, and I know my kiddos would, too. If only because we're risk-takers.
