NEWARK, N.J. — Mars Wrigley has introduced limited-edition varieties of M&M’s and Dove chocolates this season: M&M’s Espresso Dark Chocolate Candies and Dove Promises Silky Smooth Holiday Brownie Batter.

“At Mars, we like to say we’re consumer obsessed, and that especially rings true during the holiday season as we look forward to delighting our fans with seasonal twists from fan-favorite brands like M&M’s and Dove,” said Allison Miazga-Bedrick, senior director at Mars Wrigley. “No matter what holiday you are celebrating, it’s a wonderful time for people to come together and feel a sense of belonging and enjoying the newest seasonal flavors from M&M’s and Dove can make it a whole lot sweeter.”

M&M’s Espresso Dark Chocolate Candies combine espresso flavor with dark chocolate and are coated in festive-colored candy shells.

Newark, N.J.-based Mars also released M&M's Caramel Cold Brew earlier this year, making M&M's Espresso Dark Chocolate Candies the second coffee-flavored M&M's innovation. The two flavors were inspired by consumer trends and a nearly 60% increase in sales of espresso flavored products during the holidays, according to the company.

M&M's Espresso Dark Chocolate Candies are available in a 3.14-ounce share size and 7.44-ounce lay-down bags.

Dove Promises Silky Smooth Holiday Brownie Batter features a brownie batter-flavored filling inside the brand's milk chocolate shell wrapped in Christmas tree-patterned foil.

The limited-edition Dove Promises are sold at retailers nationwide and available in 7.94-ounce lay-down bags.

Mars Wrigley is a division of Mars Inc., Newark, N.J. With $40 billion in annual sales, Mars Inc. produces candy brands such as Snickers, Dove, Extra, M&M’s, Milky Way, Twix and more.
