I was distracted today from my steady perusal of books by the news of a new flavor. This is not the sort of news that usually drags me from my books, but it involved chocolate, and And nothing, absolutely nothing goes with a book as well as chocolate does. Don’t you agree?
And pecan pie, while not quite as perfect with books as chocolate–it’s harder to eat one-handed–is almost a perfect food. Put the two together and you have something very special indeed.
Turns out, they are also releasing Pumpkin Spice Latte over at Target, so if you don’t mind going to two stores, you can have two lovely flavores.
Sadly, they will not be around for ever. Evidently, an M&M representative told “PEOPLE that the product is available at Walmart for the ‘Halloween timeframe'” Will that stretch through November, do you think, or will they pull it on October 31st?
In any case, we shall all soon be able to read our books while sipping from coffee, perhaps with some Star Wars flavored Coffee-Mate, perhaps not, with a small bowl of uniquely flavored M&M’s close by.
Until then, live long and prosper, and may the Force be with you.
Hmmm… these M&M’s sound like they might be good for movie-watching, too. What do you think?

Editor’s Note: This author originally and erroneously stated that they were releasing Pecan Pie and not Pumpkin. This was incorrect, and she regrets the error. They are not releasing Pumpkin Spice. They are releasing Pumpkin Spice Latte. How much difference there is, she cannot state.
She also found that you can buy a lot of Star Wars-related M&M products, which was oddly unexpected, though she’s not sure why–after all, you can buy Star Wars-related everything-else.
