Starting with the 2011 Christmas season, Mars has been releasing sets of holiday-themed standard-sized M&M’s packages. Though they’d been producing large-size packs with holiday themes and graphics for years, these standard-size holiday packs were new. Since their introduction, we’ve seen two different Christmas holiday sets (both standard and Mint), a Valentine’s Set, and even a delicious Candy Corn Halloween Set.
Today, I’m going to take a look at the twelve different standard-sized M&M’s pack designs that Mars created for the Easter Holiday season.
The following pack designs were first introduced during the 2012 Easter holiday season, but returned for a encore appearance in 2013. There are twelve different packs altogether, six each of Milk Chocolate and Peanut variety. Here they are:
And as with the previous holiday releases, each variety saw two different package back styles:
It’s a fantastic set of twelve packs, and I really enjoy the fun they have with the mascots on these. I’ll be curious to see if these same pack designs come back for a third year next year or if Mars comes up with a new-look set. As a collector it would be fun to see them switch it up by giving us something new – but I wouldn’t be surprised to see these return.
One last piece to share today is a little Easter Fun-Size pack of M&M’s Minis.
And that’s everything for today’s Easter Countdown post.
See you next time!
