Do the New Hazelnut Spread M&M’s Actually Taste Like Nutella? We Investigate

When M&M’s announced their new Hazelnut Spread flavor on Tuesday, the crowd went wild, with fans spreading the news on Facebook by the droves (our own post has over 18,000 shares and counting!).

But why? This is certainly not the first new M&M’s flavor to hit shelves—they are perhaps rivaled only by Oreo in the category of snack innovation. But the intersection of two cult dessert favorites, Nutella and M&M’s, seemed to strike a chord at an unprecedented level.

The new candy is not officially affiliated with the Nutella brand, hence the generic name, though there’s no doubt it was inspired by the original chocolate-hazelnut spread (which is so popular it once sparked riots in French grocery stores.) Given this fact, many have already been asking if they will be able to live up to the hype they’ve already created.

Though they don’t hit shelves until April 2019, we received an advanced “Sharing Size” bag and got to tasting in order to answer this question. The verdict is sure to calm some nerves: They are very Nutella-esque. That familiar nutty flavor hits you almost immediately—perhaps packing even more of a hazelnut punch than the actual stuff.

Beyond that, the M&M’s scored high marks across the board among PEOPLE staffers, with many remarking upon the delightful textural contrast that is not present in the classic version. The creamy filling is the perfect foil to the hard outer shell, and the layer of milk chocolate in the middle acts as an intermediary between the two.

Overall, we give the Hazelnut Spread M&M’s a solid A rating, something we do not hand out lightly—just ask the Orange Vanilla Cream and Crunch Raspberry flavors.

Authorities Investigate Possible Hate Crime After 2 Indian Engineers Shot in Kansas, 1 Fatally

Prosecutors have charged a man with murder and attempted murder after he allegedly opened fire in a crowded bar near Kansas City, killing one man and injuring two others.

Adam Purinton, 51, was charged with one count of premeditated first-degree murder and two counts of premeditated attempted murder after police allege he shot three men at Austin’s Bar and Grill in Olathe, Kansas.

Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, was killed in the shooting. His friend, Alok Madasani, and bystander Ian Grillot were both injured.

During a press conference at the Olathe Police Department headquarters, Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe announced the charges against Purinton. He was joined by representatives from both the FBI and the Olathe police.

In a report picked up by numerous media outlets, a witness told KCTV that Purinton allegedly yelled, “Get out of my country” as he moved toward the victims. While PEOPLE has been unable to verify the eyewitness account, a spokesperson at the Olathe Police Department confirms that they are working with federal authorities to determine whether the shooting was a bias-motivated hate crime.

Additionally, a FBI spokesman says that they are “thoroughly investigating” the incident.

At the time of the incident, bar patrons were watching a University of Kansas basketball game on television. The police report states that Purinton got into an argument with Kuchibhotla and Madasani. Witnesses told KCTV that Purinton allegedly used racial slurs during the confrontation.

According to the report, Purinton allegedly left the bar and returned with a firearm. Police allege that he shot both men. When Ian Grillot stepped in, he was allegedly shot, as well.

Police allege Purinton fled on foot. Later, he allegedly entered an Applebees and allegedly told the bartender that he had been involved in a shooting.

Grillot was shot by one bullet that went through his hand and into his chest. In a video released by the University of Kansas Health System, Grillot said that he was lucky to be alive, and downplayed any indication that his involvement was heroic.

“I was just doing what anyone would have done,” he said. “It’s not about where he was from or his ethnicity, we are all humans, so I felt what was naturally right to do.”

Purinton is being held on $ 2 million bond. It is unclear if he has an attorney. He has yet to enter a plea.

Authorities are still investigating the incident to determine their next steps.

“This was a violent crime,” FBI special agent Eric Jackson told reporters in a press conference on Thursday. “We want the community to know that we’re looking to make sure that the individual involved in this is held accountable for his actions.”
