Taste test: These M&M's (part of a flavor contest also involving Thai Coconut and Toffee versions) looked mostly like regular Peanut M&M's, with a subset of the usual colors — green, yellow and red — that gave them a Mexican theme.
I bit in to find that the initial taste was pretty similar to normal Peanut M&M's, but as I continued to chew on the large pieces, the jalapeño kicked with an increasingly strong heat. I didn't specifically notice the distinctive flavor of jalapeños, but I couldn't help but notice the heat. The chocolate helped to temper the heat a bit, but cold milk worked even better. Certainly the hottest M&M's we've tried.

Smell test: Definitely different than regular peanut M&M's, but not really a strong hit of jalapeno.
From the package: “1 of 3 internationally inspired flavors” ... “Partially produced with genetic engineering.”
