All right, it’s time to discuss something über important… The hierarchy of M&Ms.

There is no doubt that it has been one of the most controversial topics on this blog since the very beginning. It has invoked serious passion and debate between many of us, so why not get this out in the open and have a serious, centralized debate about it. I hope you’ll each join in. And please… let’s all try to be civil!

To me, it’s not even questionable. It’s black and white. In fact, it shouldn’t even need to be debated. But, debate we must if we are ever to move on, so this is my list of M&Ms from best to worst.

1.Peanut Butter M&Ms.
2.Peanut M&Ms.
3.Almond M&Ms.
4.Coconut M&Ms.
5.Pretzel M&Ms.
6.Crispy M&Ms.
7.M&Ms Minis.
8.Plain M&Ms.
9.Mint M&Ms.
10.Peanut butter and jelly M&Ms.
11.Poop flavored M&Ms.
12.Wet Dog flavored M&Ms.
13.Dark Chocolate Peanut M&Ms.
14.Dark Chocolate Plain M&Ms.
15.Cherry M&Ms.

Now, if the M&Ms are frozen, I’d actually bump Pretzel M&Ms to number one, followed by Peanut M&Ms, followed by Peanut Butter. If it’s outrageously hot outside, Almond M&Ms go to the top of the list.

So… what is your hierarchy of M&Ms and do any of them fall below the Poop Flavored or Wet Dog flavored? I really hate the dark chocolate M&Ms. And the Cherry… in my opinion, they’re insulting to the M&M brand.
