Ask and ye shall receive. This month’s Pizza Lab was actually a request from a fan. We’d already been tossing around ideas for a different pizza, but when the request came in we jumped to it and brainstormed how to make this pizza work. We briefly tossed around the idea of making them cinnamon roll style, just using pizza dough instead of cinnamon bun dough. But ultimately we decided that, while it’d probably be delicious, it strayed too far from the traditional pizza format to be a Pizza Lab (though we may still experiment with that sometime in the future). Just putting cinnamon and sugar on the pizza dough would have resulted in a pizza too similar to the dessert pretzel pizza we made years ago. It was time to take things to the next level. We had to make this a stuffed pizza.
When I saw that M&Ms had a limited edition flavor that was out for Easter, I figured what better to post this week than a review of them? For some reason this flavor is exclusive to Target, which actually has apparently happened before but I’m just now finding out about. In doing some digging it seems that M&Ms has released a few different seasonal flavors to Target in the past. I am now kind of upset that I missed out on some potentially awesome limited edition M&Ms. But I found out about these ones! And since we happened to be driving past a Target the other day, I managed to obtain a package. They’re definitely being marketed as a spring/Easter candy since the green M&M is wearing bunny ears (unless it’s all some sort of elaborate Playboy ad, but I doubt it). Other than the pastel colors I’m not entirely sure why they chose to make this flavor for Easter. Strawberry shortcake is much more of an early summer dessert, when strawberries are in season than it is a spring one. Seasonally appropriate nitpicking aside, let’s find out how these M&Ms taste.
