Pink M&Ms?

Yes, yes, I know that M&Ms have been available in esoteric colors for some time now. But just as we were getting used to the concept of a blue M&M in the regular package, the company has decided to upset the apple cart again.

Yet another color will be introduced to standard M&Ms – and as before, the public will get to vote online in March. The choices? Purple, aqua, and pink. Yes. Pink.

What do you think? Should there be any more colors added to the regular bags, or should the little candies just forget expansion? Maybe this is all a ploy by M&M/Mars to create a special “limited edition” classic M&Ms bag with only the original colors…. -pm

I LOVE IT!! I am a PINK Fanatic, and my entire office decor is Pink. I would love to have some Pink M&Ms to offer in my candy dish. I would also like to see a Pink M&M dispenser. It is more than just about the chocolate inside, colors represent differnt things to different people and that is what makes them special. If you don’t like Pink, buy a different bag.

I’m seeing alot of people pretty upset about there being no more light brown M&M’s, even after all these years. I thought I was alone in that and no one else cared. Then I read above that they don’t even acknowledge there ever being a light brown M&M in the history timelines, that makes me even more upset. I was at the M&M World store in Florida last year, there were probably 50 different colors and varieties of M&M’s, but no light brown (the best ones ever to exist). So, my proposal, everyone who is effected by this tragedy should contact the parent company in any way possible, by e-mail, phone, good old fashion letter, whetever and express their disappointment of that decision and kindly ask for a reconsideration.

What is this then?
