Twelve Days of Christmas: M&M’s Christmas Theater Boxes!
Always an enjoyable topic to address are the holiday releases for M&M’s. Just a few days ago I mentioned the new holiday flavor release of M&M’s Gingerbread and today I’d like to showcase the new Christmas-themed theater-sized boxes for a pair of M&M’s classic offerings.
Though M&M’s have a long history of fantastic larger-sized holiday packages, it is only in the last couple of years that they’ve really been bringing the holiday goodness to their smaller packaging. In past articles I’ve noted the holiday M&M’s pack releases for Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween and Christmas. Last year was the first time I picked up M&M’s theater sized boxes with holiday designs when I spotted their Halloween boxed releases.
Very much in the vein of those Halloween boxes come this year’s Christmas-themed M&M’s theater-sized boxes. Here they are:
Mars – M&M’s Milk Chocolate 3.4 oz Christmas holiday candy box – November 2013
Mars – M&M’s Peanut 3.4 oz Christmas holiday candy box – November 2013
As we’ve come to expect, the M&M’s mascots are in full humor and attitude on these boxes. Note the addition of a blank To/From section on the back of each box, making them perfect for gift-giving. These would seem to be perfectly-sized for stocking stuffers, and they’re fun additions to my M&M’s packaging collection.
And that’s everything for today’s post. See you next time!
