They are described as featuring "a creamy caramel center covered in delicious milk chocolate, enclosed in a colorful candy shell." Although they won't be hitting shelves until May 2017, PEOPLE writers and editors had a chance to be one of the first to try it out.
Given it was a deadline day at the magazine, staffers were shoving any food they could find in their mouths, but the general consensus was that this candy is legitimately a pure delight.
One editor described them as being like "Rolos with a crispy shell."
The M&M'S are certainly more chewy than any of their other flavors, which made one writer have flashbacks of getting Milk Duds stuck in her teeth.
Today, M&M's released the name of their latest flavor: caramel.

According to a statement, the caramel M&M's feature "a soft caramel center, providing a perfect smooth texture in every piece."
