Though I’ve already covered an M&M’s product in the Countdown this year, they’ve earned this second spot by coming out with something that is awfully fun. Exclusive to Walgreens stores, M&M’s has released a Halloween-themed fun-size assortment where the individual fun size packs glow in the dark! Make the jump to check them out!
As I’ve already pointed out, this special glow-in-the-dark Halloween packaging is a Walgreens exclusive item, and that is highlighted in this clipping from last week’s Sunday circulars that I saved:
And now on to the goodies. The large outer-package doesn’t contain any glow-in-the-dark ink on it (at least I don’t think so…I never checked!) but it’s still a great-looking piece – it reminds of Goosebumps for some reason:
There are five different fun size packs contained in the assortment, featuring each of the main M&M’s mascots in a different Halloween costume. Here they are:
I’ve actually looked at all of these in a completely dark room (after charging their special inks up in the light) and while the glow effect is not super-strong, it’s still fun. They also used the glow ink on both the front and back of the packs.
I was going to try to do some long-exposure photography to capture the actual glow-effect, but didn’t really have time, so instead I’ve created a simulated look at how these appear when they’re in effect. These simulated images capture the glow-in-the-dark areas pretty well, if not perfectly. Here they are!
That’s all of the individual fun size packages. I gotta say, the whole glow-in-the-dark thing may be a bit passé these days, but I still get a kick out of seeing it used in this way. Kudos to the folks who came up with the idea for this one.
And that’s everything I’ve got to share on M&M’s Walgreens-exclusive Halloween Glow-in-The-Dark Fun Size M&M’s packs. See you next time!
