Conversation M&Ms

Custom Printed M&Ms

When I was young my mom used to put Sweetheart’s candy conversation hearts in my lunch on Valentine’s Day. I looked for it every year, and my mom always delivered without fail. I would immediately pick out the white (“mint” flavored) ones to eat myself, and then give away the rest of the candy. Good friends would get the “LOVE U” or “CALL ME” hearts, while acquaintances would get stuck with the leftover “AWE SOME” or “FAX ME.” It was the different sayings that made the candy so fun, even if the candy itself left something to be desired.

I have great memories thanks to those conversation hearts, so when I recently saw that you could add personalized sayings to M&Ms it was almost too good to be true. Now the fun sayings are available on a candy you actually want to eat.

Custom sayings are printed on one side of the M&M (the traditional “M” is on the other) and can be up to two lines long, eight characters per line. To keep the sayings appropriate, only positive messages without objectionable words and phrases are allowed. M&Ms must also be for personal use only, and cannot include business names, product names, celebrity names, specific sports teams, major events, landmarks, names of schools or institutions. That may sound restrictive, but you’re still left with plenty of every day sayings like “I LOVE MOM,” “ANDREW IS GREAT” or maybe even “TEXT ME” for your acquaintances these days. You can also choose from a range of colors, making this a great gift idea for any holiday.

Custom printed M&Ms cost $9.49 per 8oz bag, with a 4 bag minimum order required, for a total of $37.96. Not quite as cheap as the drug store Sweetheart’s, but still affordable enough for a special occasion. If you order by January 31, 2006 and use the coupon code MYMM08 you will receive free shipping and a free valentine’s gift box.

My friends Cyrus and Athena had about 10 lbs of these made for their wedding. They sprinkled them on each of the tables for the guests. It was really cute (and tasty!)

How cool is that?! Sadly they don’t ship internationally, but still a great gift idea :) I even get jealous about the many different colors M&Ms you can purchase in the States, we only have the regular mix…

When I was in school, I didn’t like those conversation hearts…good to see M&M has come up with the chocolate version of it!!

Nat says on January 17th, 2007 at 9:41 pm:

This is GREAT except you MUST order with credit card. It would be WONDERFUL if you could order by mail or with paypal.
