M&M Premiums giveaway

In spite of (or perhaps because of) the wailing and gnashing of the chocolate-coated teeth of my children, I am giving away some of the bounty bestowed on me by the fine folks at the Mars Company. Through BlogHer, they recently sent me a gazillion boxes of M&Ms Premiums to sample and review, and it's just not fair for me to keep all this beautiful and tasty goodness to myself.

My family had strict instructions to eat all the almond flavors, since I am allergic to nuts. So while I can't offer you Raspberry Almond or Chocolate Almond, I do have three flavors I have personally enjoyed:

Chocolate Mint
Mocha
Triple Chocolate


I will send a set of three to three winners chosen at random from the comments left on this post.

Comment by 8:26 am (MDT) on August 26, 2008 (one per person this time), preferably with a reason why you crave M&Ms Premiums. After the deadline, my son will pick three random numbers from 1 to X (number of comments). Those commenters will be the winners. I'll notify them by email, and send the treats by mail.

By commenting on this post you agree to the terms and rules of this give-away and you consent to letting us use your name (bloggy or otherwise) when we announce the winner. Anonymous comments and comments without a valid email address will be disqualified.

Chime in now, please. Chow down later, hopefully.

WOOHOO! An American contest that's open to Canadian residents! All Thumbs ROCKS!!

While they aren't Smarties M&Ms are pretty cool too!

kamewh said...

These look delicious! I love the flavors! Thank you for the giveaway!

Karin said...

Who doesn't crave chocolate?! MMMMMMM-- they sound so good! I wish I had some with my morning coffee, but I guess I am going to have to settle for blueberry yogurt.

Lollipop Goldstein said...

The rules and regulations looked scary official.

Though I'm not an employee, I feel like family. So perhaps I can't be entered. But I need that many M&Ms and crave them because I'm getting my period next week. Oh...and I still fit into SOME of my clothes and I need to ensure that I don't fit into ANY of my clothes.

BethH6703 said...

mmmmmmmmmmmmmm M&Ms!

Let's see... I need them because:
- I'm on hormonal meds (Lupron & estrogen) that are making em wackadoo crazy.
- Stress? Chocolate helps stress, right? And you've read my (few) posts over the last few weeks... I think I could qualify for a medical research grant to study the effects of chocolate on stress & brain chemistry, or some such nonsense.
- and well, dammmit, I'd really like to try them.
- and dammit again, I'd really like to win something!

So, HEY REED! Please oh please oh pretty please pick your Virtual Auntie Beth's comment number?!?!?!

(and no, at this juncture in my life, I'm not above pandering to a child... kinda sad, huh?)

Kari said...

Oh yummy! I've been wanting to try these new M&M's..have you seen the commercial for them? It cracks me up. Thanks for the giveaway!

bookworm said...

I must have chocolate in my diet, so I really need these! I've been wanting to try them, they look wonderful! Thanks for offering them.

The Casual Perfectionist said...

M&M has always spelled "MMMMMMM" in my book! ;) I've wanted to try these since you did your review! :)

ababe28 said...

I love any kind of chocolate and haven't even seen these in the stores near me, so I'd love to try them!

Caro said...

boo hiss, we need interesting M & Ms in Denmark too.

chicklet said...

I'm going to come up with a fake persona and come in and comment and WIN IT ALL! Cuz if I don't, you'll never give them to me...

barbarabaker said...

Who WOULDN'T crave those yummy, YUMMY yummy M&Ms...I would be so thrilled to be chosen at random by your cool son (wink, wink)!!!!


Please count me in, I need the mint chocolate, Dad and the kids need the double chocolate and of course me, me, me (again) could use and eat the last box...all to myself :)

Lollipop Goldstein said...

I just twittered it like a fucking candy dealer. A dealer. You two have turned me into a candy fiend :-)

Jill said...

I'm here because of your tweet! And because M&Ms are my most favorite candy EVER! And because those new flavors are way too expensive for me to justify buying some just to "try" them.

Jensboys said...

I have never even heard of them! But the idea - simply the IDEA of a mocha flavored M&M is HEAVEN! :)

Count me in! But, ah, do I HAVE TO share them with my kids? Their ARE boys and there ARE 4 of them! That would hardly leave enough for this hungry, stressed out mom to enjoy!

aislin13 said...

I'm a woman. Isn't that reason enough to crave chocolate lol

sphinx63 said...

I crave them because I haven't tried them yet! And I want to! Thanks!

AJS said...

Oh my! My daughter, Lil Bug, would be in M&M heaven. Seriously..she would probably not stop smiling until she was 21 (she is 3 right now!) So, with that...pick me, pick me, pick me! :)

Io said...

My dear lord. Chocolate. I need these M&Ms because the rest of my life has been sh*t for the past several months and now my husband is trying to make us go on a diet by getting rid of all good food (he gave away cupcakes!) and I need chocolate that I can hide in my closet to eat when I just can't take it anymore.
Sorry for the run-on sentence. I am on sugar withdrawal.

Kat Bryan said...

I've always thought M&Ms were the perfect chocolate candy and now they've made them even better.

Rachie Pachie said...

Ooo, nothing like craving chocolate, but PREMIUM M&Ms? I want some!

MoonMaiden said...

I crave M&Ms Premiums because 1) I'm a certified chocoholic, 2) they're M&Ms brand, and 3) I haven't tried these new yummies yet :) *Thanks* for the giveaway!

jenny fowler said...

well i have never tried them before but i am craving them because of what i am missing out on!

Meghan said...

Ummm....I think the better question would be how could I NOT crave them. First I must say that mint and chocolate is by far my favorite chocolate combo (well technically it's wine and chocolate but that is off limits now) and triple chocolate...well that takes things to a whole other level.

And don't forget that chocolate is good for you...I need all those antioxidents ;)

nancy said...

because they are chocolate. duh!

Delenn said...

Because I can withstand the temptation of chocolate in my office workplace--unless its M&M's. It's my favorite and even when I was pregnant and did not want the empty calories--I took 3 spoonfuls. And even now, when I am trying to lose the weight--I can't help it--those M&M's in Roberta's office--they call to me. (and I like those dark chocolate ones, so I probably will like the premiums)

calliope said...

I would like to have the M&M's. It is currently one of the only food stuff commercials that is aired during the Olympics that does not make me want to retch. Sending mind mojo to your son...PICK ME!!!

Hope2morrow said...

I've never had "Premium" M&M's, so they are something I just must try. NOW! In fact, I am actually craving those melt-in-your-mouth candies at this very instant all because of your blog. Guess I'm off to the grocery now!

Thanks for holding this chocolately-sensational contest/giveaway! I'll toast to you tonight!

Debbie said...

Why wouldn't someone want these? I have four kids and I need these just to make it through the day. I'll be looking for a good place to hide them once I get them!

Natalie Jane said...

Oh yea! A giveaway for me. With a nut allergy in our family, this is right up my alley. (And these are crazy good...)

Beth said...

I have tried the Mint ones and I love them. I would love to try the other flavors if they are anywhere near as good they may just become a new chocolate favorite.

Christy said...

Wow, I need these M&M's due to their medicinal properties. What? You haven't heard that? Let me explain. Only chocolate will help certain types of headaches, like hormone headaches. Really, there is plenty of research to back this. Anyhow, after having a miscarriage and D&C last week I have had a near constant headache due to my dropping hormone levels. Must have more chocolate to recover!

blueviolet said...

Premium chocolates are for the real chocolatiers amongst us. We appreciate chocolate in its singularity and in every available combination of flavors as well! Oh man, these look good!

ikkinlala said...

I'm so glad this is open to Canadians! I'd love a chance to try these because I haven't seen them around here yet and I love chocolate and mint combinations.

Norrin2 said...

Hey, I'm an M&M freak on a budget. Can't afford the premiums but have been dying to try them out.

No Minimom said...

I am DYING to try those triple choco ones. Oh my goodness they look so tasty!

Jackobanzi said...

Shouldn't you give those M&Ms to a teacher who is freaking out because her students come back in two days? That would REALLY get me through those first weeks of school when I whip my kids back into shape. Oh - and the short person living in my house might like them, too...

Mommy said...

Mmmmmmm M&Ms!!!

I need them b/c my son is definitely in the terrible 2 stage!! Need I say more?!?!

Chi said...

I LOOOOOOVE chocolate and I have been dying to try these out! The flavors just sound so delicious :) Thanks for sharing!! :D

Cathy said...

I love the commercials and have been wanting to try them but right now they seem cost prohibitve getting one back in college and one starting Kindergarten.

tsslug said...

Bree said...

Count me in! I love contests. And also chocolate. And also winning chocolate.

Neenie/PawsNY said...

I would die for the box of triple chocolate m & m's...OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG I AM SALIVATING

d'Dragon said...

Whenever I see the Triple Chocolate M&M Premiums, & wherever, I buy at least 3 packages. Two for me & one for my mom. Only my mom has never received a package from me. I wonder why that is? I'll eat either half a package at once, or the whole thing if I have a particular craving. They're the best! Thanks for having a giveaway!

JuliaS said...

Because life is trying to eat me alive - so I might as well taste like chocolate.

:0)

My Reality said...

I heart chocolate.

Catherine said...

I love when I stumble upon a good blog with a great giveaway!

MrsSpock said...

OoooooO...anything mocha flavored is a must-have.

Ms. Planner said...

Lori - just stopping by now - but I HEART this blog! Am bookmarking it pronto!

I need the triple chocolate ones. NEED! Pretty please?! I need them because I have a newborn. Who feeds every 3 hours - still. And so I need to eat chocolate so that I have energy to deal with a lively baby who DOESN'T WANT TO FREAKIN' NAP!

Erica said...

I crave them because they are candy-coated goodness...perfect for sharing with my hubby while we sit on the couch and watch movies.

In Search of Morning Sickness said...

Oh my gosh!!! Commenting here because I'm a crazy chocolate addict!!!

Kaci said...

MMMM....this sounds yummy. I crave these because they've been advertised like crazy & I'm female, therefore I love chocolate. Trying to lose weight but figure a few at a time can't be too bad for me!?

Arian said...

AF has been hanging around my house for almost a month now! Chocolate cannot come to me in large enough volumes right now! I am hoping that AF will eventually get sick of all the chocolately goodness, pack up, and move out!

Even hubby has been reaching for the chocolate lately. Yes. It has gotten that bad!

M&Ms would be a wonderful addition to my fading stash. Help me!

Dreamer4agift said...

Poppin' in at the end, I know, but I could REALLY use some chocolate right about now....

AF has shown and well, she just plain sucks. My emotions are all over the place and I can NOT make it without easy the yelling goddess by giving her some chocolate.

Plus, I am starting my meds again in about a month, so see, my emotions are going to continue to be all rollercoasty-like until God knows when.

PLUS, I love you girls and I love chocolate:-) Please?

Smiling said...

Oh how I am craving M&Ms... but alas after reading the oh so official looking rules I see that I may not be elegible as I only 'reside' in the US in the sense that I still vote there and have a mailling address there.

Elaine said...

Dude - I have been craving M&Ms like a pregnant woman - which I am NOT. If I'd known the giveaways at Blogher were this good, maybe I'd have gone. Yum!
