Oh WOW those Atkins 'M&M's'

Are soo good! I'm happy they come in little individual packs or I would eat way too many!
I love M&Ms, especially frozen ones, and these are just as good.
Going to keep them as a rare treat, ok not too rare, maybe once a week, but they are yummy!

You know, I got those, and I was impressed - and then I was depressed because I realized I don't really like milk chocolate anymore. I would have a serious problem if they came out in dark chocolate!
That said, I was shocked at how 'real' they tasted.

I saw them at the store and thought about putting them in the basket but now I wish I would have gotten them.

This was the first time I had seen them at my Walmart. All the other times they were out. So I got a box while I had the chance.
They always have the peanut ones, but I don't like them, so no temptation there.

I love them, but they have a lot of sugar alcohols (14g) which I think caused a lot of intestinal distress Anyone else experience that?

I still have them in the pantry so maybe I'll try again......

I didn't have any problems with them. I've only had them once, am trying to save them for about once a week or so.

I haven't had the "M&M's"

I try to stay away from the Atkins treats, but their peanut butter cups are deee-lish!

They are! I buy those once a year, at Easter, so I'm not tempted by Reeses PB Eggs.

I WISH I could eat those. Every time I eat them they stall me. You're right though, they are delicious.

I loved M&M's but gave them up, then Russell Stover had an M&M type candy that I bought and liked but they stopped making them so I was thrilled when I saw Atkins come out with these. I got a few boxes on Netrition, opened all the packets and put the candies in a pretty candy dish with a lid. There are usually 37 candies in each packet. I limit myself to only 10 candies at a time. I haven't even eaten any of them for a couple of weeks but just knowing they are there and I can have them if I want them helps me to stay on track. I know this won't work for everyone but it does for me.

Optimistic to think they will have a peanut butter version?

The thing I miss the most after starting LC again is M&M peanut butter. It's the most magical candy ever made

I love them. M&M are my favorite high carb candy. The Atkins version is a good substitute. I have a bag almost every day.

Oh, they give me total bubble guts, but they're so delicious that I suffer through it.

I've been so good and haven't had any since Sunday. Going to limit them to once a week. Will probably grab another box when I see them again, I have some $1 off coupons!

LOL! You're right, they are delicious. I think I'll try another bag when DH is not home and I'm not planning to go out, just in case......

At Walmart they're where the meds are in an aisle with 'diet' stuff. The Slim Fast, Atkins and other 'health' stuff are in that aisle.

I was just going to ask this same question. I guess my Walmart doesn't carry these. I looked with the "diet" stuff, and they didn't have them. I also checked in the candy aisle with the sugar-free candy and they weren't there. I was hoping to give them a try, but I guess it's better if I don't.

My WM is out of them most of the time :/ Maybe keep checking.

I ate my weekend pack today. I slept late and was snacky.

My sister told me yesterday that she hasn't been feeling well and she thought it was from her new meds. I asked her what was wrong and she said she had diarrhea for four days. Hmmm.....I said, "have you been eating the Atkins M&M candies by any chance?" And a light bulb lit up over her head. She said, "I've been eating a bag every night!" So, there you go. Be careful out there.......

I can't believe Atkins is only putting 5 servings per box. They're $5.58 per box where I live. After tax that is almost $1.20 per serving. Ouch! And I have to say, Hershey's sugar free chocolates with caramel are better - and more economical.

Hey Geiri, do they have Reese's sugar free peanut butter cups where you are? I think they are better than the real thing. Mmmm. And frozen.... MMMMMM. Unfortunately...to easy to eat too many!

I've got to stop reading these posts. Starting to really crave chocolate.

Hope you all have a good night!

They're a little more than $5 a box here and I usually have a $1 coupon.
I only eat one bag on the weekend, so $1 and change a week isn't too bad for me.
I'm lucky and tehy don't bother my tummy at all. Those Atkins brownies do
