I always chuckle at birthday cake flavored items. What exactly does this generic birthday cake taste like, and how do you capture an event in a flavor? Chocolate cake is a flavor. Vanilla cake is a flavor. Birthday is not a flavor. But it should be, I guess.
Anywho, these bad boys are SWEEEEEEEET. Not like normal M&M’s sweet, but more like “I can taste nothing but sugar granules” sweet. Do they taste like a birthday cake? The first few M’s kind of did, but really the sweetness overwhelmed everything else. Unlike birthday cake flavored ice cream (the industry that invented the birthday cake flavor, I think), these got pretty tiresome after the first few bites. Pass these up and go straight to Candy Corn, my friends.
