    White chocolate M&Ms!

    Advertisement :
    Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you know that Target is carrying white chocolate M&Ms in anticipation of Easter this year, a variety that I haven't seen before. I've been just fine with them and have found that a couple out of the large bag are a nice snack and definitely a cheaper alternative to the white chocolate vanilla bean Godiva bars that I love so much!
    Anyone have any other suggestions of white chocolate brands or snacks that ICers might be able to tolerate?

    White chocolate kit kats are my favorite. I get them at the gas station.

    I actually found carrot cake M&M's, which are made with white chocolate and cinnamon (or at least it tastes like cinnamon). I was so excited that I bought two bags! Yum!!! I would highly recommend them.
