The Blue M&M

Do you remember waaaay back in 1995 when M&Ms held their "Candy Colors Vote?" A new color was going to be added to the M&Ms mix, and it was up to the public to call in and cast their vote. The color choices were purple, blue, and pink.

I can remember it like it was yesterday; my friend, Margaret, and I called the hotline from her teen line (remember teen lines?!) and cast our votes. I remember being very passionate about the blue M&M, and how much I wanted that color to win.

Who knew 18 years later I would still hold such a passion for the letter M (Marcus, Macke, you get the picture) as well as the candy coated chocolate goodies...
Is that not the CUTEST blue M&M you've ever seen? No smile, one sock, and all.
It is possible I had to bribe this little M&M with none other than.. M&Ms. Obviously. He sat still long enough for these pictures and the consumption of 11 M&Ms.

There is more to this outfit, and Grandma Kathy worked too hard and sewed her heart out not to show you, even if Marcus refused to wear the entire ensemble.
Those gloves! The shoes! I'm really hoping I can get Marcus to wear the whole thing tonight while we're Trick or Treating. Wish me luck. Something tells me I'm going to fight and lose that battle.

From my sweet, blue candy-man...

  21. What an adorable lil blue M&M one sock, no smile and all! Now that you mention the new color contest, I totally remember calling to vote for a new color and I don't even eat chocolate or M&Ms for the matter all that much! Lord knows what color I was pulling for- totally possible that I changed color every time I called...
    Hope the little guy cooperated for Trick or Treating and wore his whole blue costume for ya!
