While we’re saddened by the nearing end of summer, we’re pretty excited about the return of all those quintessential fall flavors one of which, pecan pie, is spicing up the latest limited-edition M&Ms.

M&Ms and pecan pie fanatics alike are, well, freaking out about the Tuesday sighting of the pie-flavored chocolates on Walmart shelves. And we can’t blame them: Pecan pie is one of the greatest fall flavors, plus it hasn’t yet experienced pumpkin-spice-level overexposure. (Did you know there’s pumpkin spice vodka?)

An M&Ms representative tells PEOPLE that the product is available at Walmart for the “Halloween timeframe” — adding that “some stores are likely starting to display it now” — in 9.9 oz bags with a suggest retail price of $2.98.

While we’re excited to snack on the novelty M&Ms, we’re even more excited to bake with them. Imagine some next-level monster cookies, or granola bars. But we’ll probably just end up eating them all immediately upon opening the bag. (M&Ms are the enemy of self-control.)

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Always nice seeing corporations finding new ways to make people fat and ill. Keep up the great work, we Americans will hit a new high for our obesity rate.

In my Billy Crystal (Harry) voice “Pe-cennn Pieeeee.”
Absolutely disgusting but gave me this wonderful opportunity to reflect on one of the best movies of my teen years.

I bought a bag on a whim. Much to my surprise, they were good! My husband liked them so well, he hardly shared. They were a tad on the sweet side tho. I was not a fan of the birthday cake or candy corn flavors, but I do believe pecan pie might be a keeper!
