The marketing geniuses behind M&M’s have done it again. They consistently make a splash on store shelves around the holidays, but Halloween is their sweet spot. Check out the kind of assortment you will see at your local candy counter…
Each product has its own unique character–what could be more collectible than that? Many of these designs cover the whole Autumn season, but this year, the candy corn M&M’s caught my eye. I can’t say I cared for the flavor too much, but that guy on the package instantly won me over.
I found two small boxes for the regular and peanut M&M’s–both of which are fun and full of Halloween goodness.
Not only are the M&M characters being used to market M&M’s, they’ve also been employed to adorn the packaging for this mega-box of Mars candy.
That blue skeleton in the top hat needs to made into a collectible vinyl toy immediately!
M&M’s knocks it out of the park again this year, and I can’t wait to see what they come up with next year!

I would buy the hell out of a collectible miniatures line too. Great posts! Love the coverage.
Totally agree on the skeleton m and m. Looks like us on the East coast are gonna get swamped on Halloween by a hurracane. What are the odds!
I was hoping this would all turn into a great blizzard but it looks like rain for us.
The Peanut M&M Mummy is my fave. I’d buy that figure for a dollar.
