My favorite food my whole life has been peanut m&ms, which my fiance and I agreed would make the perfect wedding favor for our guests. Unfortunately, after checking out the m&ms website, I learned that only regular m&ms could be special ordered in particular colors. However, I thought that I remembered pink m&ms being sold for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I thought, why not stock up on them now?! I went to Target and Publix today to load up on them… and I couldn’t find them anywhere. The only ones I’ve seen are either Halloween colors or just regular. So now I’m wondering if I didn’t imagine the existence of these m&ms in the first place. Has anyone seen them anywhere, or am I just SOL?

http://www.candywarehouse.com/pinkmandms.html <- I was looking at this as a favor option also, but we’ve decided to go with candy apples instead.

I saw them in Target yesterday – they were on clearance. Look by the grocery section. Clearance items are usually at the end of the row.

I’ve seen them before – however just a few thoughts about this.
– Penut alergies are so horrible (and getting more common) these days, with immdiate medical attention requried you might want to lable it very very clearly or rethink it even though it’s your favorite.
As much as you would think people who are alergic would know the shape is different, even just picking them up – barely touching a penut will send them into shock. Last thing you would wnt is someone going to the hospital from your reception.
– Also, I’m not sure when you’re wedding is but m&m’s have a shelf life, and they tend to get a bit stale (but still edible) before the experiation date on the package. I woulnd’t store them for more then a month at the very very most. Even storing them in the fridge can alter the flavor slightly.
I don’t mean to be down on your idea – I think it’s actually a good one but just wanted to point out those things because I have penut alergies in my family 🙂
Hope you find what you’re looking for 🙂
