M&Ms Custom Printing, Colors for Any Event

Chocolate in bar form, from it's humble production years at the turn of the century, has gone hand-in-hand with military rations throughout history. From the America's first World WarW , when soldiers were given chocolate bars in abundance, as a cheap source of energy and nourishment. The unfortunate thing about chocolate is on it's own is most definitely guaranteed to meld into a puddle of chocolaty goo in the palm of your hand, or if carried close to your body too long.

During the Spanish Civil War , an innovator of Mars candy company saw Spaniard soldiers had been given chocolate encased in a sugary coating, which kept the chocolate from liquefying in the hot sun - which led to the development of the first M&Ms and a patent filed March 3, 1941, with actual production of the first M&Ms sold to consumers in paper tubes . M&Ms have been known the world over.

Custom M&Ms

22 Colors









Recently M&Ms have launched a very cool site,
so that you can create a campaign of custom
m&ms.
From birthdays to weddings - you choose from
22 colors and a variety of fonts to get your
perfect message on that candy coating.
The ordering process is very simple you choose
your colors,font and type in your message.
Once you have selected all the custom info,
you can see a dynamic demo in flash giving
you an idea of what your m&ms will look
like, featuring your colors & message.
Not only is there custom printing options
for the home consumer - But for businesses
as well.







I went ahead and ordered some for my husband's organization. He holds an elected office position and using the faces-on-m&ms option, I chose the organizations colors, then put his face on one side and his office title on the other side. The process is just as easy as the basic custom message - Upload your picture, crop it if you want a closer image, then their site techs will get the image resized so that it has the best appearance on the m&ms. I also ordered some basic m&ms with my personalized message.

I really liked the interactivity of m&ms site. It's a really neat service. Great for making an event even more special, or for advertising your business or organization. http://www.mymms.com/

Those are really cool. I saw those in a wedding magazine once. I just didn't have the time or energy for party favors when I got married.

I ordered these for our wedding (it was several years ago now :) ) They were a huge hit - besides, who doesn't love chocolate? at least a tiny little bit..

That's a very nice idea, and I believe I could buy someone for special moments.

The Spanis Civil War... Inspiration for Hemingway and candymen alike.

Neat article. And having seen a few of these custom M&M jobs, I can tell you that they do look good/are clearly legible.

M&M never failed to amuse its customers including me. Really yummy with personal touch.

3:25 PM, May 10, 2009 Reply  

I think that these M&Ms are fantastic as party favors for a kid's birthday party. I can't imagine any little kid out there that wouldn't love to see their name and photo on an M&M :)

5:32 PM, May 17, 2009 Reply  

Definitely, imagine the kiddies faces light up with a custom m&m for their birthday party.

Obviously I'm a big fan of martinis, I'm going to get some of these and see if I can come up with some interesting new martini ideas. I wonder how long the candy shell will last immersed in a drink?

10:20 AM, June 03, 2009 Reply  

wow that is so cooool! it's such neat gift idea for all occassions... i want my face on those candies! :D

12:01 AM, June 12, 2009 Reply

2:58 AM, July 03, 2009 Reply  

I think that I am the most relevant to bring a real court because I eat a meal of sweet and salty foods for dessert. So I am a huge fan candy. These sweets are definitely at the top of my list of quality and taste.

wow! This is absolutely cute and cool as the same time... :) Really Nice post...

8:42 PM, July 14, 2009 Reply  

I love M&M chocolate! Really funny !

1:20 PM, July 20, 2009 Reply  

I was seriously considering ordering these for my wedding as party favors for guests at the suggestion of my mother. It would have been a great idea, but unfortunately it fell through the cracks as the wedding plans became more elaborate. Customizing and personalizing candy is a great idea and maybe I'll use it for an anniversary.

3:33 AM, August 13, 2009 Reply  

I think these M&Ms, are a great idea, Who does not like these sweets for one and having a spash of personalised colourful items for any party really.

How come I never knew about this chocolate story..that site just salivated me..thanks for the tasty link.

How I wish, it was available here in the Philippines. It seems like it was a very clever and unique idea in exchange of some usual stuffs and candies seen on any party.

Its good to see that M&M are working hard to produce a variety of product. Since they have introduced customization on their products i have become their huge fan.

I am a great lover of chocolate and M&Ms is the best chocolate out there in the market. I have never think about the interaction they are providing through their website. That is simply amazing. Now I can able to motivate my employee by our company logos on the candy, also customize happy birthday candies for my friends and family.

11:10 PM, March 22, 2010 Reply  

I have never seen these before. I'll get these done for my upcoming divorce and send them to her :-)

11:10 PM, March 22, 2010 Reply  

This is really great! i can do this on my next birthday! Thanks so much!

Thank you so much for posting this great article. I had no idea M&Ms did this.

I have an 8 year old girl who is having a birthday party at the end of April. This will be a big surprise for her seeing her face and a short text message. I am sure all the kids and parents will be inquiring about it as well.

And they are reasonably priced as well.

Ok now this is a good idea and I think you could get pretty creative with custom food. Imagine a website address on a M&M and you notice it everytime you eat one that will get stuck in your mind for sure.

If you're like many people, chocolate is not a luxury; it's a necessity. Often considered the fifth food group, chocolate has inspired one of the most widespread and passionate of people's love affairs with food.

it has become a popular means of advertising and marketing because they are relatively low cost

I know its a long time after the start of this post, but very recently in Australia I found out off a tv game show a very interesting fact about M&Ms. Basically the contestant was on their final question and had to place all of their potential winnings on answer A or B.

The question was which were the most prevalent color M&Ms in the original packs? Yellow or Blue? The wife had been taking control of the last few questions and claimed to know a lot about marketing and used some deductive reasoning to fluke some answers. On this last question the husband thought it would be yellow, and the wife seemed to change her mind to yellow, saying it would have the best contrast against the brown wrapper. The answer being blue lost them $700K.

Remember, its always the blue one.
