Over the course of the last 48 hours, a group of no fewer than five people (myself included) have intermittently debated the hierarchy of M&Ms. While no consensus has been reached, I think that M&Ms should be ranked in the following way (from worst to best):
Dark chocolate -> Almond -> Dark chocolate peanut -> Peanut -> Milk chocolate/regular -> Peanut butter
This is pretty clearly the correct order. One debater has peanut butter ranked in the bottom third, because “peanut butter is not meant to go with chocolate.” This is an insane thing to say, because not only do most humans think that peanut butter and chocolate go exquisitely together, some extraterrestrials think so too. Another debater has the peanut variety perched at the top. There is no way this is accurate, especially considering the perpetual threat of a bad peanut lying in wait within.
So, I ask you: which is the best kind of M&M? Vote in the sidebar. Also, feel free to leave your complete rankings in the comment section of this post.
