Sugar Cookie Flavored M&M’s Announced For Christmas This Year

Mars, Incorporated is already getting into the holiday spirit by announcing that M&M’s Sugar Cookie are being baked up in Santa’s workshop (aka their factory) for Christmas 2020.

The new M&M’s Sugar Cookie was created exclusively for the 2020 holiday season, a rep confirmed to Best Products. The candies feature a white chocolate, sugar cookie-flavored shell with a crispy center. Sugar cookies are a staple around Christmastime and the smell is enough to get anyone salivating. Now you can have the flavor simply by opening the bag.

“With Christmas nostalgia in every bite, the seasonal must-have serves as a gooey, no-bake treat, and festive candy dish décor with red, green, and white lentils,” press materials said.

Although Mars is making this announcement now, the M&M’s Sugar Cookie flavor won’t be available on store shelves until November. But don’t get too upset about counting down the days! You have a chance to win the Christmas-inspired candy to get an exclusive first taste. On July 25, head to M&M’s official Twitter and Instagram pages and comment on either (or both!) of the posts for a chance to win a pack.
