Prepare Yourself For Vanilla Cupcake M&M’s!!!


By Cooking Panda

One Instagram user has M&M’s fans going crazy over a leaked new flavor. The post shows a picture of M&M’s Vanilla Cupcake, and we can’t wait to try it.

According to Delish, the new M&M’s will be white chocolate based and vanilla cupcake flavored. They’ll come in spring colors such as lavender, pale yellow, baby blue and light pink. The Instagram post shows a purple package with the lady green M&M on the front holding a tray of cupcakes. Also on the post is a message about the new flavor only being available at Target.

A post shared by (@junkbanter) on

Instagram user Junk Banter apparently found this new flavor announcement on a Target store weekly flyer, which was uploaded to, for those of you who are interested in scanning through coupons (maybe even for the M&M’s once they’re out). The Vanilla Cupcake flavor is expected to debut after Valentine’s Day, when it makes more sense to release candies that are Easter-colored.

We always look forward to getting a taste of a new M&M’s flavor, and according to Today, the most recent flavor to debut was the White Cheesecake. We’ve also known them to come in the strawberry shortcake variety, as well as pecan pie and hot chocolate. Some have argued that the White Cheesecake M&M’s really only tasted like plain white chocolate, so we’re hoping this new flavor will actually taste like the real deal.

Mars hasn’t officially announced this new flavor yet, so we’re waiting on that as well. Once that much-anticipated press release is available and circulating, we’ll know it’s time to start the taste-testing. We’re not the only ones excited for that part, either! Both Delish and Today have also expressed an eagerness to announce their own taste-test findings. Will M&M’s Vanilla Cupcake taste like the disappointing White Cheesecake flavor, or will they be scrumptious, like the popular peanut butter flavor? Time will surely tell! Keep an eye out at your local Target after Valentine’s Day to decide for yourself.

Mom’s Facebook Post About Encounter With Teen At Target Quickly Goes Viral (Photo)


By Cooking Panda

A mother of three and her 2-year-old daughter were shocked when a teen bought the girl a toy for her birthday.

Megan Shufflebarger was in a Target store in Lafayette, Indiana, with her children shopping for her daughter’s birthday, according to her Facebook post. As the toddler, Kinley, began making a list of what she wanted, a teen overheard the commotion and approached her. 

The teen asked Kinley which doll she had picked out and she told him, “I really lub dis one.”

“They chuckled and he walked off with the doll and said try to stay over here,” the mother wrote in the post.

“I thought it was odd at first but was quickly distracted with more oohing and ahhing,” the mother added. “Kinley asked where the dolly was she picked and I told her it would be okay there are more.”

The teen returned a few minutes later with the doll in a bag and handed Shufflebarger a receipt. He then handed Kinley the doll and wished her a happy birthday.

“I was speechless,” Shufflebarger told CBS News, according to WTSP. She thanked the teen and he walked away.

Shufflebarger shared her story in the hopes that someone in the the area would know who the teen is. Thousands of shares later it was determined that the teen’s name was Tario Fuller II, a freshman football player at Purdue University.

“This one act of kindness has likely generated thousands of smiles, softened many hearts and inspired others,” Shufflebarger told WTSP.

“That in and of itself makes my heart full and happy,” she added.

Woman’s Encounter With Target Employee Quickly Goes Viral (Photo)


By Cooking Panda

An Indiana woman’s Facebook post about an encounter she had with a cashier at a local Target is going viral.

Sarah Owen Bigler was running errands with her children on Jan. 13, Fox 59 reported. They stopped by a local Target and were next in line at the check-out.

Bigler noticed an elderly woman in front of her who was trying to purchase her items with change. She admits that she became frustrated at first, but the way the cashier responded made her have a change of heart.

Bigler then detailed what happened next in the Facebook post:

Part of me, the part that had a long day at work, the part of me who had a 1 1/2 year old having a melt down in the cart, the part that had set an unnecessary timeline for Target and getting home, was frustrated with this woman and the inconvenience she had placed on me.

BUT then I watched the young employee with this woman. I watched him help her count her change, ever so tenderly taking it from her shaking hands. I listened to him repeatedly saying “yes, mam” to her. When she asked if she had enough to buy a reusable bag, he told her she did and went two lines over to get one for her and then repackaged her items. Never once did this employee huff, gruff or roll his eyes. He was nothing but patient and kind.

Bigler’s post has been shared nearly 10,000 times in two days. She added a photo of the cashier, who was later identified as Ishmael.

“I realized I hadn’t been inconvenienced at all,” Bigler wrote. “That my daughter was instead witnessing kindness and patience and being taught this valuable lesson by a complete stranger.”

Bigler noted that the cashier thanked her for her patience. She then went and found the manager to let her know what a great employee Ishmael is.

“If you are ever in the Glendale Target, give Ishmael a smile and a nod,” Bigler added. “The world could use more people like him.”
