MY M&M’S have arrived! Here’s my full review. I got the M&M'S delivered to my office and I was really impressed with how thoughtfully it was packaged. The candy came wrapped up in a thick padded envelope with an ice pack (sooo smart! you don't want the chocolate to melt). I couldn't wait, so I opened up the 5 lb bag and taste tested a few (in the name of quality control, I promise!) They were delicious - just like any M&M'S you would buy at the store... but of course they were personalized! The platinum silver and light blue colors fit perfectly with my cousin's Cinderella themed wedding. I was also very happy with the heart and crown clip-art and personalized text. I lugged the bag home and h helped himself to a few handfuls (another approved taste test!) I kept them refrigerated (I think M&M'S taste even better when they are cold) and brought them over to my parent's house the next weekend.
My cousin's shower is in August, so they will be hiding in my parent's freezer until then. My mom and I are still deciding how to use the candy for the party. One option is to give it to guests as a favor, and MY M&M'S offers cute options to package your candy. I like the Silver favor tins, lace favor bags (great for a rustic themed party), and clear party favor bags with ribbon (you choose the ribbon color). Or we can incorporate candy into a dessert table or centerpieces. I love the idea of finding a few glass slipper or pumpkins (hello, Cinderella!) and fill them up with the candy. MY M&M'S are perfect for wedding and special events, they can be used to create personalized favors, bridesmaids gifts, and wedding and party decor. There are so many options for adding a special touch to any celebration-- and in my opinion, you can't go wrong with chocolate!
