People always love M&M's, the "colorful button-shaped chocolates as they were originated in the United States in 1941, and are now sold in as many as 100 countries. The company's longest-lasting slogan reflects this: "Melts in your mouth, not in your hand."
For the past weeks, I am exciting to meet M&Ms characters as we were informed that they will be here in the country this April for the M&Ms Philippine Tour.
“Mr Know-It-All” Red, cool Blue, optimist Yellow, sexy and confident Green and worrisome Orange – these world-famous M&M’S Characters drove their Filipino fans wild at a meet-the-fans session at The Atrium, Eastwood Mall.
These irresistible M&M’S Characters are here in Manila for a first-hand experience of fun in the Philippines whilst spreading their own brand of spontaneous fun!
From now till 31st May 2015, they will be sharing the excitement of our favorite M&M’S Chocolate and Merchandise, making in-store appearances and introducing exciting activities such as the M&M’S Pose Pinoy Selfie Contest.
