I collected enough M&M wrappers during junior high school to amass a large collection of M&M’s t-shirts for my three brothers and me. As a freshman in high school, I accepted the dare of a senior friend and wore a different M&M’s t-shirt to school every day for a week. I was “plain” one day, “peanut” the next.
My mother knows my passion for M&M’s — she and everyone else in the family share it — so she always has a stash when we go back home and often brings a big Sam’s Club bag with her when she and Dad come to town.
That background will help you understand why I was thrilled to discover the “Mars Real Chocolate Relief Act” via Twitter today. Mars, the maker of M&M’s, is giving away free chocolate every Friday. All you have to do to enter is submit your e-mail address.
Why? Because Mars doesn’t want Americans going hungry for chocolate during a recession.
That’s awfully sweet of them. And free M&M’s is definitely one bailout plan I can get behind.
