The only problem I have with the Beatles one is that the George M&M
should've been a peanut M&M as well, since John, Paul and George were all
the same height and Ringo was shorter.

Nitpicky, I know.

Y'know the one thing i most admire about america is the variety of M&M
you guys get.. here in the UK we have peanut, chocolate & crispy... &
that's it...

Every trip to, or request from folks in the states on gifts always ends with
the same response, "peanut butter, almond & dark M&Ms and cigaretes
please" (:

Silly question:  I understand the last two, but why peanut butter, Robbie?

Simple Matt (& funnily comic book related!) as a kid reading US comics
EVERY sweet advert was amazing.. We have TONS of chocolate brands in
the UK, but back then 90% of this stuff wasn't for sale in the UK... & the
M&M pnut butter ads were the ones I remembered the most.. made more
frustrating when they started selling pnut & chocolate M&Ms (but not
pnut butter) in Spain & so those became a fleeting treat on
holidays..fiiinaly a coupla years after that WE got those 2 M&Ms but NOT
pnut butter, and a coupla years ago we finally got crispy, but still no pnut
butter, so, the flavour i always wanted from those ads, is STILL
unavailable..so i think it's just a "cant get it, so i want it" thing, because i
probably WOULDN'T bother if we did (we get reeces pieces & peanut
butter cups)

I live in a land of "chocolate childhood" where snickers bars will ALWAYS
be marathon bars (ask any 'UK kid' here) and starburst are opal fruits and
alas, M&M pnut butter dont exist...

Sorry, maybee not THAT simple (:

As a guy that carried around jars of peanut butter and Nutella around Europe in a backpack for two months, I can say in my experience the stuff can be difficult to locate over there.  Not impossible, for sure.  The handful of Brits and European folk I asked when about it when I was there all said that it's just not popular, and most people don't like peanut butter.

Ryan, tell me about that. I don't like it at all for the breakfast, but my wife and my little boy just love it ! Sometimes, it create tensions because some peanut butter was mixed in the jam jar ! And I hate this so much !

Anyway, back to m&m's...

 

Indiam&m's Jones, anyone ?

These really need to be in a gallery somewhere.

Amazing yet "simple-looking" stuff. Way to go for everyone who is making these.
