If I could eat M&M’s Minis after dinner every day I totally would, and now I may have the perfect excuse to do that with the new M&M’s Mint Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich.

M&M’s is bringing color and flavor to the freezer aisle with the launch of a NEW Mint Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich featuring, refreshing mint-flavor ice cream between two soft chocolate cookies topped with Milk Chocolate M&M’S Minis. Oh. My. God. What a dream.

Mars Wrigley – parent company of M&M’s – announced the new flavor just in time for those seeking a green St. Patrick’s Day treat. There is something in the spring air about March that makes all food brands bring us these soft, green, delectable treats we’ve been waiting for all winter.

If you’re not really the mint-chocolate person, M&M’s is also adding a little vanilla to the freezer aisle because you can never go wrong with vanilla.

New for Spring are M&M’S Classic Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches, featuring delicious vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two chocolate cookies with Milk Chocolate M&M’S Minis baked in.

“We’re excited to expand the joy of M&M’S colorworks to the Mars Wrigley ice cream line, starting with a minty green treat for St. Patrick’s Day,” said Jayesh Shah, Mars Ice Cream Marketing Director. “These new flavors add even more options alongside our fan-favorite M&M’S Vanilla and Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches – offering a fun and enjoyable treat for any occasion.”

The two new flavors of M&M’S Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches will be available in packs of 4 (16 oz) beginning this March. If you’re lucky, they’re probably already on shelves at your local grocery store. The new flavors join the current M&M’S Ice Cream portfolio, including the M&M’S Vanilla Cookie Sandwiches, M&M’S Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches, M&M’S Ice Cream Cones and M&M’S Ice Cream Fun Cups.

With the perfect mix of cookie, ice cream and M&M’s, I can’t promise that I will willingly share these new treats with anyone. Looks like my house will have to stock up 2x the amount.
