Don't Eat the M&M's Earbuds!
The Product Package
I received earbuds from my friend that display the M&M's emblem. How excited am I! I have collected M&M's memorabilia for years and love the chocolate taste of the edible bite-size candy as well. Great gift, no issues on this point.
And So The Fun Begins...
I take a closer look at the candy, er, ahem, I mean the packaging.
I'm so glad the M&M's company notified me not to eat the package! I was tempted until I read the line:
Even after I read the descriptor I'm not sure whether to consume or not. Then I see the exclamation point at the end of the line. Whew! Now I confirm, hey these are earbuds and not in the edible form that I find in the food aisle at Walmart.
Thankfully, the "Precautionary" section on the back of the packaging instructs me further:
Do not ingest any part of this product.
Point taken! (The exclamation point makes sense here). I am so thankful the M&M's company saved me from ingesting the earbuds and then sitting in the hospital waiting room for a few hours.
I hope the smart packaging has helped you to avoid a similar disaster!
