What I did with my Pretzel M&Ms

From time to time, I get sent things to mention on my blog. Remember that time I got to drive that electric prototype car called The Chevy Volt? Well, the same firm, Fleishman-Hillard International Communications asked me if I’d like some new Pretzel M&M’s samples. Uh yes, please! And this time, I didn’t eat them all before blogging about them. That has happened. And I’m so sorry about that, Dove Chocolate. I really let you down there.

But back to these yummy Pretzel M&Ms, I not only ate them and enjoyed their crunchy, salty goodness, but I decided to do a couple of other things with them – like make pumpkins out of the orange ones and posed them along with Playmobil Oscar and Donner:

It is approaching that time of year after all. Thankfully I only found 3 orange ones. I didn’t think it’s a good idea to eat the ones with Sharpie faces on them. But the rest went down just fine.

It may surprise you to know I didn’t eat all the packages myself. I actually shared some – like the time Mike was sick with a cold last week. I gave him his own package. I’m sure it helped him feel better. Please note: I’m no doctor and I can’t prove M&M’s cure colds. And I also gave a package to my friend, Suzanne…

Tonight was her birthday. So I gave her this:

I just realized that this makes me a huge cheapskate. I just gave my friend a free sample as a gift. No, happy birthday to YOU, Suzanne.

And I still have another package! I can either:

1) put it in my backpack for work tomorrow or
2) give them away so someone else can try them.

I pick option 2. Who wants a package of pretzel M&M’s? Leave me a comment below and I’ll send them to you! I think I’ll do a random draw for the winner. And I just may throw in a little something something extra.

A big thanks to the M&M’s Team for the samples. These candies are delish.

    I am not sure if the pretzel M&M’s are in the stores on the East Coast..but just may have to check. Did Anna say “coconut” M&M’s?!! Yay, now that would be delish too!! Must go M&M shopping this week-end!!

    Love the pumpkin faces- LOL!
    You know what- I don’t like pretzels! I know I’m weird right? Maybe dipped in chocolate and candy coating they might be more my thang- lol!

    I love pretzels. Oscar and Donner look like they are made out of licorice.

    But I think you might have struck on a million dollar idea! Edible candy markers!

    Well, now I know more about M&Ms than it ever occured to me to know! They have quite a fun site. Congradulations on the test drive. Love Oscar and Donner with the pumpkins. Purrfect. I am sure special candy cures colds. Absolutely!

    Would love them for my DD to try. The chocolate covered pretzels at Starbucks are large and pricey. These sound like a good substatuate.
