M&M/Mars’ 2003 Halloween Lineup Sales Catalog!

CC_M&M_Mars_2003_Halloween Season Catalog TITLE PLATEB

Jumping back to 2003, today I’ll be sharing a product catalog put out by MasterFoods, a distribution arm of the M&M/Mars company.   This catalog covers a range of the Halloween candy that Mars was offering that year with a special highlight on their licensing agreement for the cartoon series, Dexter’s Laboratory.  Make the jump to check it out!

The catalog has 28 pages and for many of them the designer chose to minimize the product images.  So, at the end of the posted catalog pages today, I’ll wrap up with a series of close-ups as I think you’ll want to get a better look at some of these.  So let’s just jump right into it.

Here’s the catalog:

As you can see, there’s a nice array of material in that catalog, though a lot of the photos are pretty small.  So to rectify that, here are a selection of close-ups:

These Dexter’s Laboratory Fun-Size multi-packs are pretty great!

    I remember these Dexter’s candies from when they came out. I believe all of the Dexter’s ones have the facts on them, I know from memory that at least the bars (Snickers, 3 Musketeers, Milky Way) did. I don’t remember the M&Ms enough but if they say they did they probably did.
