They’re here: New M&M’S flavors rolling out of Topeka plant


They haven’t hit all store shelves yet, but KSNT News got a sneak peek of three brand new M&M flavors coming out of the Topeka Mars plant owned by Mars Wrigley Confectionery. KSNT News was first to report the additional flavors being produced in Topeka.

The three limited-edition M&M’S peanut flavors are Mexican Jalapeño Peanut, Thai Coconut Peanut and English Toffee Peanut. The new flavors will be available at retailers nationwide starting this week, although so far, many retailers tell us they haven’t seen the new flavors show up just yet.

But they are real. On Tuesday, KSNT News received three sample bags from the Mars Wrigley Confectionary Company and we are providing the link to the contest, which could send the winner on a trip to all three countries that inspired the new flavors: Mexico, Thailand and England. So, if and when you get ahold of the new flavors, here’s how to vote. Participants can vote once a day until May 17.

Mars describes the Mexican Jalapeño Peanut as a combination of just the right spice with chocolate, the Thai Coconut Peanut flavor is “a savory sweet taste inspired by the tropics of Thailand,” and the English Toffee” tastes as elegant as a trip to Great Britain itself.” The flavor with the most votes will be announced in August 2019 and continue to be sold at stores nationwide.
The Mars Topeka plant is a 500,000-square-foot facility at the Kanza Fire Commerce Park in south Topeka that opened in 2014.The plant makes M&M’S, Snickers, and Twix bars, among other products.
