Every Day Is an M&M's Day

I was born in the south. I live in the south and will die in the south. This is only a small part of the memories I share.

I Had Heard a Lot

about one of the nation's smallest, and yet most-delicious candy, but I did not have access to get any of this tasty candy. That was until my sweet mother and dad were in our hometown, Hamilton, Ala., on what we called, "Bill-Paying Day," which happened to be every Saturday morning from 7 a.m. until late that evening. There is a good reason: my parents loved to fellowship with their friends, because visiting them in Hamilton while they were paying their bills, was the only time that they could all visit and talk about life, the economy, and county politics.

I spied this clear bag of two words that I labored to read. Then after half hour, I managed to decode the words: M&M's Candy, and with that stroke of happiness, I let out a ya-hooo! My mom was not that embarrassed. She was used to my antics especially about M&M'sCandies.

When we arrived home, I made it to the bag of delicious candy and did I spend a lot of time in which I thought I was going to eat some candy, but no, sir. My dad headed me off then and there. Supper was for him, mom, and me, and he said if i was good that I could have three pieces of that candy for dessert.

Sure I was good. And was rewarded with three pieces of candy. But dad got involved with something that mom was talking to him about and I guess, I played the red fox to a coop of hens.

Or was it my mom who engineered the Candy Theft?

This Halloween, You’ll Have It Made

when you stock-up with delicious M&M's Variety Mix Chocolate Fun Size of Halloween Candy. Fact: you will want to buy more than once bag of this tasty Halloween treat that M&M’s stands for tasty candy and have made the super-tasty M&M’s since 1941. 78 years. That is a very long time to manufacture treats (for all ages) day in and day out, day out.

I can tell you that I do not know all that there is to know about M&M's, except that they have been around since 1941, that is 12 years before I was born. Sigh! At least I am older than this candy. And speaking of candy, I have been known to enjoying a small brown package of M&M's occasionally.
