New inspirational M&Ms issue honors feminism and fat women

M&M’s creator Mars will release "all-female" M&M’s candy packages for a limited time to honor women who are "flipping the status quo."

The company announced the feminist-forward candy wrappers Thursday, saying it will exclusively display M&M’s female characters: the green, brown and most recently introduced purple M&M.

In addition to featuring the three female M&M’s on the wrappers, each package in this limited run will only include the corresponding green, brown and purple candy-coated chocolates.

The packages will feature the female M&M’s flipped upside-down to represent how women "are flipping how they define success," according to PR Newswire.

This move is the latest in a series of marketing moves M&M’s has made to promote inclusivity. Its previous announcement involved the introduction of the 𝘱𝘶𝘳𝘱𝘭𝘦 𝘧𝘦𝘮𝘢𝘭𝘦 𝘔&𝘔 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘳𝘦𝘱𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘴 𝘣𝘰𝘥𝘺 𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘷𝘪𝘵𝘺 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧-𝘢𝘤𝘤𝘦𝘱𝘵𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦.

“Designed to represent acceptance and inclusivity, our newest member is known for her earnest self-expression,” the brand said in a statement. “Keen self-awareness, authenticity and confidence are the driving forces behind Purple’s charm and quirky nature."

"Women all over the world are flipping how they define success and happiness while challenging the status quo, so we're thrilled to be able to recognize and celebrate them – and who better to help us on that mission than our own powerhouse 'spokescandies' Green, Brown and Purple?"​

Corporations are not people and thus do not care about us. They only want our money. I'm sick of these big brands and their faux-inspirational crap. Yes, let's promote junk food and unhealthy lifestyles. With all the stress of making ends meet, people are overindulging in "comfort foods" too. It's all manipulative.

'Inspirational' is an adjective based on the verb 'inspire'.

'Inspire' is a transitive verb which means someone inspires someone else to do something.

In this case, evil corporation inspires foolish people to get fat.

On a different note, I always found it funny that Mini M&Ms and peanut/peanut butter M&Ms are way better than the regular ones.

I like they forgot they sexualized the fuck out of the green M&M. God bless Cree Summer.

The people at these corporations are so out of touch. No one gives a shit about being represented by an M&M. Phony fake pandering.

This is no different than cigarette ads that said "You've come a long way, baby!" Yet abortion has been banned in many states, The US has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the developed world and we have Christian, Jewish and Muslim fundies who oppress the rights of women in their communities. Our healthcare system is a joke and for working mothers, daycare is extremely expensive. Yet promoting snack foods with a purple plus-size M&M is such progress.

Clearly the Mars company doesn't really support women because they still have packages that say woMEN!!! They need to follow the example of the community college where I live that women with an x so that it looks like some sort of typographical error rather than a word.

[quote] If it’s in all female M&M, I assume that it costs 77 cents on the dollar of what the regular M&M would cost, right?

On the Tuesday edition of The Ben Shapiro Show, Shapiro noted that the new packages will be included on the milk chocolate, peanut, and peanut butter varieties.

“I was getting afraid there. I’m glad that at least some of these M&Ms will have nuts to represent the transgender community,” Shapiro said.

“So you have to ensure that some of the M&Ms are actual — are actual trans women. We wouldn’t want these to be cisgender M&Ms. So good news, some of the female M&Ms will in fact have nuts,” he added.

Shapiro discussed the introduction of the purple M&M that was designed to represent body positivity and inclusivity.

“I’m sure M&M would love people to accept body positivity cause you eat enough of them and you get fat,” he said. “That is what they are. They’re a candy.”

As he continued he said, “So moving. So incredible, so unbelievably stupid.”

“So women, do you feel represented now because of the green, purple and brown M&Ms on the M&M package that you are guzzling down lonely in your apartment with your wine and your cat?” Shapiro asked.

“How’s that going for you? Amazing. Amazing. But at least you feel represented. That’s the important thing,” he added.
