Last month I documented the assortment of six different Candy Corn M&M’s packs released for Halloween. Today I’m going to share the six different limited edition Mint Chocolate M&M’s packs released for Christmas 2012.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it here again — I love that M&M’s has started producing these standard-sized holiday-themed M&M’s packs in sets. They’re perfect for collecting and give me one more thing to look forward to with each candy holiday.
These packs all feature the Mint M&M spokescandy, Green. Let’s check them out:
Just as with the Candy Corn packs, these Mint packs feature two different pack backs:
Mint chocolate M&M’s are not an entirely new thing, though this is the first time they’ve been presented in packages like these. Mint M&M’s have traditionally been offered as a limited release available around the holidays, but I’ve found evidence that they were also test-marketed as an all-year-round product back in the 1990’s. I’d love to find a pack wrapper for these 1990’s Mint M&M’s, but for now I’m happy to have a display box in my collection:
That display box had a date on it, though it was partially obscurred. For some reason it looked like the year was blacked out with a marker. From the best I could make out, the year originally read as 1992. Here’s a close-up:
And that’s everything for today’s coverage of these neat new Mint M&M’s packages and their ancestors.
I’ll be back with another Wacky Wednesdays post tomorrow followed by a dive into a groovy vintage topic on Thursday.
See you next time!
