Description
These were 'chocolate brown' and 'mint green' colored M&Ms with a mint flavor. I used to buy them in/after high school (78-82). Yummy!!

I loved them and then one day they were gone. Obviously, 25 years later I still think about them.

With the availability of a zillion colors of M&M's by order, you'd think they could make these available too. They were sooooo good

Those were so good!!! That is where my love of mint chocolate stemmed from. Honest to goodness, I still talk about these today and no one knows what I am talking about. I keep getting weird looks (even from my parents)!!! :) Instead of M's stamped on the candy, wasn't there a king's crown stamped on them? Yummie!!! I can still remember happily crunching on them on the way home from the store.

You can get mint M&M's at Christmas time, and they just released mint crisp with the new Indiana Jones movie.

OMG! During my senior year in HS, I had a schedule with no lunch hour. I used to run to the cafeteria in the few minutes between the "lunch hour" classes every day & buy M&M Royals. Man, I miss those things!

OMG!! NO ONE I know remembers these!! They had little crowns on them. I remember at recess one day, a boy gave me what I thought were some of these and they were some black licorice flavored crap, and I threw up. BRING THESE BACK

M&M Royals were the best chocolate candy! I wish they would bring them back...

They've sort of brought these back, I think, in the form of "premium" M&Ms. There's mint ones, blueberry ones, all sorts of flavors. we have them at the Walgreens I'm working at. Instead of a bag, they come in a long cardboard box with a small window on the front. They're sort of shiny-looking, too.

From what I know they weren't made by M&M's, it was a different company, the mint M&M's aren't nearly as good.

Yes it's true. Most people don't know what I'm talking about when I mention M&M Royals. I wasn't sure if it was just a Chicago thing or whatever, but I remember in my way home from school picking up a bag from our local corner convenience store.

I definitely remember these, and I was only 3 or 4 when they discontinued them! Our local swimming hold used to sell them out of the snack bar, and I loved them so much I refused to share whenever I was treated to some. They were yummy! Better than the more recent Mint M&Ms.

The mint M&Ms they make now dont even compare. I get the same blank stare when I talk about Royals too. I've searched high and low - can't even find them on site that specialize in 80's candy.

I too have had problems getting people to remember what they were when i bring up the subject. I have been looking for these for years as well. If they ever make a comeback, I'll be a very happy man! M&M's mint-chocolate candy is somewhat similar, but NOT the same.

In college (1981-1983), there was a candy dispenser in the grad student lounge filled with M&M Royals. There was also a coke machine that still had the classic glass bottles. Could make the bottle fiz over by dropping a M&M royal into it (this was before Mentos even existed). [Yes, I still miss them, no the Mint M&Ms they bring out at Christmas season are NOT the same league]

Not made by M&M. Came outta Canada. Wish they'd start making them again.

M&Ms has come out with a dark chocolate mint M&M that reminds me of the Royals. It's in a green, resealable, 8oz bag.

We've started a FB page to try and bring these back! Check it out!!! Go to Facebook and search for "Bring M&M Royals Back" Join the revolution!!!!

I LOVED ROYALS! They were "from the makers of M&Ms" ...it said so right on the brown package! The best part for me was our concession stand at our high school sold them and our school nickname was the ROYALS!!!! Loved the little crowns printed on them, too. Was very sad when I couldn't find them anymore. :(

Idiots! They aren't going to bring them back just because you started a facebook page. Especially since they weren't made by M&M's!

Did a Yahoo search. Apparently they are made by Sanders Candies.

They were called Royals but they were indeed made by the makers of M & M's

And by the makers of M & M's I mean Mars

M&M mint royals were very different from today's mint M&Ms...which are a mini version of a peppermint patty (yuck). Mint Royals were solid chocolate w/mint flavor. I did think they were made by M&Ms (Mars)..have not seen since late 90's

I loved these in high school! My band director had a candy dispenser of these in her office. Yum! M & M Royals need to make a comeback for sure.
