Now You Can Buy Entire Bags of Green M&Ms

Careful, Consumption May Result in Elevated Romance Levels

I was at the drugstore the other day when I noticed an M&Ms display near the front counter. It caught my eye because the entire display was green: the packaging, the M&Ms, the display, everything. Once it had my attention, it was then the smaller print on the display made me chuckle:

Consumption of the The Green Ones may result in elevated Romance Levels.

I'm not sure where the myth comes from, but I definitely remember it from my childhood. According to urban legend, the green ones carry a mythical aphrodisiac-like quality. I guess it was only a matter of time before Mars, the maker of M&Ms, started making money off it. They've been playing it up in commercials for years, but now they're actually offering entire bags of the stuff. So forget red and pink for Valentine's Day; this year it's all about the green.

Haha, I'm currently eating out of a big bag of Christmas M&Ms - all red and green! As I recall, here's how my friends and I categorized M&Ms when we were in 6th grade or so (geez, I feel old because that's over 10 years ago!!): Red: Love Orange: Ditzy Yellow: Happy Green: Horny Brown: Poop I can't remember what blue symbolized.

when i was fourteen or fifteen years old i saved every green m&m i could and put them in a drawer in my room. i went away to summer camp and was extremely pissed off to come home to find the bowl EMPTY. my mom went through my drawers while i was gone to "straighten up" and ate every single one of them. even the peanut butter ones (which were new at the time!) oh i was so mad at her. it's a good thing i had a lock on my diary... i'm sure there's no way she could have found a way into that thing and read it while i was gone. oh i was so naive.

WHat was it, soldiers in the war collected them up so when they went home, they'd throw them in the air in teh front yard, the kids would be distracted looking for choclate in the grass and it gave him 20 or so mins with the little lady to give her some "special attention".
