Valentine M&M's

Updated on February 4, 2015

Red, White and Pink M&M's For Valentine Day - A Cupid Mix

Valentines M&M's are here! I've now seen them available in almost all of my favorite stores (and online - order below). I've been looking forward to getting a couple of bags (regular and peanut Valentine's M&Ms) to start designing Valentine Cakes & Cupcakes, but I'll tell you more about that later.

Since buying them last year, I couldn't remember if the bags had one or two shades of pink, but now I can clearly see there are indeed 2 shades of pink M&M's along with red and white ones. This is my favorite holiday bag of M&Ms!

**Update 2015: The bags are indeed, the exact same mix and colors this year. Yay!**

Scroll down for samples from each bag.

Here's the Milk Chocolate Valentine's M&M's for this year - Four colors

Amazon keeps a good supply of these M&M's with reliable sellers.

 

Here's the Peanut Variety in the Valentine's M&Ms - Also 4 colors

Here's the Peanut Butter Variety Bag - Four colors (not including purple)

Note: I expected to find purple M&Ms in my bag since there is one shown on the front - but NO! There are no purple M&M's in the bag! I added a photo as you scroll down to show the colors.

Dark Chocolate - Four colors: White, Pink, Red and yes Purple

Will there be more varieties?

Update: There are indeed 4 varieties of Valentine's M and Ms. I've now found Milk Chocolate M&M's, Peanut, Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate M&M's in Valentine's colors. In the past, there have been solid green bags but not this year. What's interesting is that only the Dark Chocolate bag contains purple M&M's. I've added photos on this page from each bag. They are beautiful.

      I wouldn't say no! :) Very pretty colours. You have a lovely collection of Valentines lenses, it looks like you really make it a special occasion at your house with cute home baking and crafts. Can I visit?

      @anonymous: Mandy's Mommy,

      I agree totally. The color mix is excellent.

      Sorry I didn't explain that better about Hobby Lobby. It's a craft store like Michaels (if you are in the US you've probably heard of Michaels). Hobby Lobby has 457 locations in 39 states according to their website.

      I added a link to a seller at ebay who carries the Valentine's M&M's for folks who can't find them locally (and the ebay candy seller told me he only just received his), but that's little help since the b-day is Saturday!

      OK, I just called my local Wal-Mart and said they are now on the shelves. Retailers are now scrambling to get out the Valentine's merchandise - I hope your local store has them too.

      Happy B-day to your daughter and thanks for your comment.

      These are the best M&M colors ever.

      But, what the heck is a "Hobby Lobby" store?!?! I need these ASAP for decorating my daughter's birthday cake on Saturday...

      This post didn't help me one bit!!!

      For Christmas they had out cherry codial M&Ms. They were shades of red and tasted like chocolate covered cherries....wonderful!! It would be great if they would bring them back for Valentine's Day.
