M&Ms to Honor Reward Pledge

image I know a lot of folks have seen the happy news that the angsty painting, The Scream, was recovered in good condition in Norway. But what about the reward that M&Ms pledged as part of their kickoff of the new M&Ms Dark product?

Mars is still coordinating with the police in Oslo and are waiting for verification of the authenticity of the painting and how the sizable reward of 40,000 packages of Dark M&Ms can be delivered.

There was no word if the actual painting had been defaced with a hopscotching M&M in the background ... my guess is not.

Full article here.

I’m glad to see that M&Ms plans to honor their word in the contest, unlike these folks who promised a years supply of Kissables and have never announced a winner. (Or maybe the competition is still open, so feel free to submit an answer.)

  1. I saw this in the news today and immediately thought of the chocolate reward! In all the news reports I’ve read so far, no one has been mentioned as the “reward recipient”. Hmm.

  2. To All Chocoholics:

    The Kissables contest is still open and will close on midnight Eastern time, on the day Dark M&Ms; are awarded relating to the Scream painting.

    From one chocoholic to another, this contect is for real.

    Enter as often as you wish. Thank you.

    Wow, Diane Prange, you’re basing the closing date of your contest on something that didn’t even exist when you started yours?

  4. Cybele,

    Point well taken. When I initially made the Kissables offer I was very new to blogging. My offer for a year supply of Kissables slipped through the cracks on me.

    So I thought the fair and equatable thing to do, was to give Candyblog readers and other candy lovers a chance to win a year’s supply of Kissables.

    I hope you, Cybele, and others wil enter.

    Thanks again for your comments Cybele.
