CoffeeNutM MsFans who participated in Mars' recent M&M's Flavor Vote picked Coffee Nut as the next new M&M's candy flavor. Honoring the brand's 75th anniversary, the brand asked fans to choose its newest peanut-flavor addition to join Original Peanut on shelves. The Coffee Nut flavor will be available nationwide in August.

The campaign also invited voters to enter their names for an opportunity to win $100,000 and be named the official M&M's Taste Tester.

With more than one million votes cast, M&M’s Coffee Nut flavor defeated two other peanut-flavored challengers: Honey Nut and Chili Nut, said Tanya Berman, director of the brand. "Flavor Vote was the perfect campaign to show how much we value our fans' opinion."
