"Mega" M&Ms

So the commercial has this giant M&M that is about the size of a bowling ball or something. Now, obviously they aren't really that big, but I did expect them to be fairly large. So when Keri bought me some, I was surprised to see that they're barely bigger then regular M&Ms. If I was eathing them in the dark, I probably wouldn't even notice the difference. Very disappointing.

And when did they start making a hundred different kinds of each candy anyway? Mega M&Ms, Caramel Reese's, Milky Way Midnight, Hershey's Kissables, White Chocolate Kit Kat, Swoops, Bites, Popables, Starburst Jelly Beans, etc. All new candy that is just a variation of existing candy. I don't know what the point is.

The point is the Dumbing down of America will buy into anything, if it says "new" on it.

Obviously you do not have a marketing or business pedigree. Consumer choice is one of the things that makes this country great. You could have done this same posts with the variation in Charmin. It was prudent judgement to leave the charmin behind.

Storm good to see you AOW was asking about you yesterday. You should drop in when you get a chance.

I whole-heartedly approve of variations on existing candy themes. With regard to "mega" M&M's however, I'm glad they didn't go too big. Wouldn't want to stray too far from the existing shell/chocolate ratio. (Of course, if they increased shell thickness, they could compensate.)

I stopped by AOW just to read the information.

When I am looking for humor, I come here.
