I just realized that these past few days I’ve been blogging a lot about Apple related stuff. First, the iPhone, next was the funny iPhone commercial and then the iPhone ringtone. Although a Macbook Pro is in my wishlist, I am not a Mac or Apple fanatic.
Anyways on with the story. This is about a guy who works for a local pet food plant in Australia. This food plant is a sister company of Mars, the same company who makes Mars & Snickers chocolate bars and the popular M&M’s chocolate. One of the perks of working there is buying the food products that didn’t pass quality control. Stuff that aren’t resalable to the public but are still safe for consumption.
So this guy buys a box full of chocolates that included several packs of M&M’s. Guess what he found? In each bag there were three or four M&Ms with the Apple logo stamped on them.
A closeup of the Apple logo stamped M&M candy.
It’s clear that the Apple logos stamped on these candies were not done by mistake. It must be part of a secret campaign for the Apple & Mars companies.
Next time I buy a pack of M&M’s I’ll be on the lookout for this. Some of it could’ve actually passed quality control and are out in the wild. Hehe
@Leon – That would be a great catch phrase or line for the iCandy! :D
iCandy – 5,000 flavors in one compact candy.
@Yoru – I'm sure a lot of Mac fans want a piece of that candy. Apple shaped M&M's might be too obvious. :D
@dimaks – Haha..what a coincidence huh? :)
Wow, and here I am commenting and just typed the Antispam keyword "apple".
I'd like to have that! :D Eh, what about apple-shaped M&M's next time?
@ade – Good question. My guess is that both companies involved came up with some ad campaign but at the last minute, backed out of it.
Now just HOW did that happen? I want one!
@Jim – Hehehe..that would be cool! :D
What's next? iAltoids? iGum? iTwinkies? :D
