I’ve enjoyed highlighting some of the Halloween-themed M&M’s packs released over the last few years, from theater boxes, to candy corn packs and design evolutions. Today, I’m going to head to the other side of the globe for a set of Halloween-themed M&M’s packages from Taiwan. Make the jump to check them out!
Earlier this year I was fascinated to learn that over in Taiwan, they took to releasing colorful sets of holiday-themed M&M’s packs in the standard 2 ounce size. While we always get a nice array of big 12 ounce bags decorated for each holiday season, we rarely-if-ever see the smaller bags given such special treatment. So it was great to track these packs down. And with that, here they are:
Tiawan – Mars – M&M’s Milk Chocolate – Red Dracula – 1.69 oz Halloween candy package – 2012
Taiwan – Mars – M&M’s Milk Chocolate – Green Witch – 1.69 oz Halloween candy package – 2012
Taiwan – Mars – M&M’s Peanut – Yellow Mummy – 1.74 oz Halloween candy package – 2012
Taiwan – Mars – M&M’s Peanut – Orange Pumpkin – 1.74 oz Halloween candy package – 2012′
And that’s the set of four. I picked up other holiday M&M’s pack sets from Taiwan when I found these, so look out for follow-ups in the coming holiday seasons. For now, that’s everything I’ve got to share on these.
See you next time!
