Happy Valentine’s Day!!

M&M’s can always be counted on for a great assortment of seasonal offerings each year and that’s certainly true for the Valentine’s holiday.  And while those are always neat to see, I recently picked up something especially cool due to its unusual nature; a set of Valentine’s M&M’s packs released exclusively to the Taiwan market back in 2012.  Make the jump to check them out!

What I find especially appealing about these Taiwanese Valentine M&M’s packs is that they were offered in the standard size shelf pack, rather than one of the larger pound-bag styles.  Not only that, but they feature artwork I’ve never seen on any USA M&M’s Valentine’s packaging.   Here they are:

Taiwan - Mars - M&M's Milk Chocolate - Ms Green - 1.69oz Valentine's candy package - 2012

Taiwan – Mars – M&M’s Milk Chocolate – Ms Green – 1.69oz Valentine’s candy package – 2012

Taiwan - Mars - M&M's Milk Chocolate - Red - 1.69oz Valentine's candy package - 2012

Taiwan – Mars – M&M’s Milk Chocolate – Red – 1.69oz Valentine’s candy package – 2012

Taiwan - Mars - M&M's Peanut - Yellow - 1.74oz Valentine's candy package - 2012

Taiwan – Mars – M&M’s Peanut – Yellow – 1.74oz Valentine’s candy package – 2012

Taiwan - Mars - M&M's Peanut - Ms Green - 1.74oz Valentine's candy package - 2012

Taiwan – Mars – M&M’s Peanut – Ms Green – 1.74oz Valentine’s candy package – 2012

Pretty neat to see the kinds of things they’re doing differently with these brands and the packaging overseas, don’t you think?

As I was bringing those together for today, I recalled that I had a pair of Valentine’s M&M’s theater-sized boxes that I had planned to share last year, but didn’t.  So rather than wait another year, I’m including them today.

So to contrast a bit with what they did for Valentine’s M&M’s in Taiwan back in 2012, here’s a look at a couple of the things they did here, just last year:

Mars - M&M's Milk Chocolate - 3.40 oz Valentine's candy box - February 2014

Mars – M&M’s Milk Chocolate – 3.40 oz Valentine’s candy box – February 2014

Mars - M&M's Peanut - 3.40 oz Valentine's candy box - February 2014

Mars – M&M’s Peanut – 3.40 oz Valentine’s candy box – February 2014

That’s everything I’ve got to share on the lovely set of 2012 Taiwanese Valentine’s Day M&M’s packs.  Happy Valentine’s Day, and I’ll see you next time!
