Continuing our candy countdown to Valentine’s Day, today I’ll be sharing the set of twelve standard-sized Valentine M&M’s packs. First released during Valentine’s season in 2012, these are back for a second year and they’re a great set of M&M’s wrappers.
As I’ve brought up in previous posts, while M&M’s has been producing holiday-themed large packages for many years, 2011 was the first time that Mars made holiday-themed M&M’s in standard-sized packs.
Here on CollectingCandy, I’ve already covered the Candy Corn Halloween M&M’s packs and the Christmas Mint M&M’s packs – and while today’s Valentine packs don’t get a unique flavor they’re still pretty neat. Four of the M&M’s mascot characters are represented; Green, Red, Blue and Yellow.
The set consists of six different M&M’s chocolate packs and six M&M’s peanut packs. Here they are:
As with the other standard-sized holiday M&M’s packs, there are two package back variations:
Here are the six different Peanut M&M packs:
That’s all twelve of the standard-sized Valentine’s M&M’s packs.
These Valentine packs have been offered for two years running, so it’ll be interesting to see if they change them up for next year. As a collector I hope they do, as it would be fun to collect a new and different set – but I wouldn’t be surprised to see these return for a couple more years.
I have a few other related pieces to share today. Last items to show today are four different fun-size Valentine’s M&M’s packs. To my knowledge, these were only offered in the milk chocolate flavor.
And that’s everything I’ve got to share today on Valentine’s M&M’s packs. Drop back by tomorrow for more Valentine’s candy fun.
See you next time!
It’s hard keeping up with all the special M&M packaging — but that’s a good thing, too.
