M&M's is dropping a new ice cream sandwich, and it's not your typical bite. The newest treat will let you dig into a chocolate-and-mint ice cream combo with an M&M's candy crunch to boot. If you’re ready to add the sweet treat to your shopping list, here's where to buy M&M’s Mint Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches to get in on the minty goodness just in time for St. Patrick's Day.
Mars Wrigley began rolling out new M&M's Mint Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches to stores in early March, and you may already see them hitting shelves near you. Featuring mint-flavored ice cream sandwiched between two chocolate cookies with milk chocolate M&M's Minis baked in, the treat is a minty and chocolatey combo that will delight all your taste buds — especially the ones that have a fondness for a Shamrock Shake.
M&M’s Mint Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches come in a 4-count box, and they're sold in grocery stores, convenience stores, and dollar store locations nationwide, per the brand. Pricing will vary by location, but you can expect the ice cream sandwiches to sell for around $3.99 to $4.99 for a 4-pack from stores like Vons or Kroger grocery stores.
If mint isn't your thing, M&Ms also has a new Classic Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich, which features vanilla ice cream sandwiched between chocolate cookies with milk chocolate M&M's Minis.
M&M's debuted its first-ever ice cream sandwiches over two decades ago in 1999, according to the brand, and the mint and classic flavors join M&M’s Vanilla Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches and Chocolate Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches. If you're looking for a more traditional M&M's offering, M&M's also brought back its Messages packs for 2021, which come in four classic flavors: Milk Chocolate, Caramel, Peanut, and Peanut Butter. Basically, there's a treat for whatever sweet craving comes your way.
Whether you're going for the M&M's Mint Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches or M&M's Messages packs, make sure to follow the coronavirus safety recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as of Dec. 31 when shopping. When possible, order your groceries via curbside pickup or delivery to avoid contact with others. If you're heading out to the store, you should consider calling ahead to make sure they're available. If you go out, wear a face mask, maintain at least a 6-foot distance from others, and wash or sanitize your hands after leaving the store. When receiving a delivery, throw away excess packaging and wash your hands before biting into your minty treat.
If you think you’re showing symptoms of coronavirus, which include fever, shortness of breath, and cough, call your doctor before going to get tested. If you’re anxious about the virus’s spread in your community, visit the CDC for up-to-date information and resources, or seek out mental health support.
