MCLEAN, Va. — Mars Incorporated, parent company of the popular chocolate candy brand M&M’s, has launched a new carob version of the treat.
Carob M&M’s will at first be product tested in areas of high Seventh-day Adventist population density.
“We will quickly know whether or not Carob M&M’s will be a hit after initial testing in majority Seventh-day Adventist towns,” said M&M’s Innovations spokesperson, Dahts Grosseman.
He added that the Carob M&M’s will at first be sold in Adventist Book Centers and supermarkets.
“Adventists have historically had a lot of time for carob treats so they clearly have priorities that top taste,” said Grosseman.
He added that, just as a precaution, Carob M&M’s would contain “28% more sugar than your garden variety M&M’s to make sure they don’t taste like topsoil.”
Single, separated, divorced and widowed Adventists who want to change that status wanted.
Carob candies taste horrible. Like eating chalk. Now if they would fix up some minty Life Savors, I’ll go along with that. When I sing, “Throw out the Lifeline” I’ll gently toss a Life Savor mint.. New evangelism tool!! Woe iz me!
