Candy Video Flashback: Old School M&M’s Commercial

Categories: Candy,Candy Videos,Chocolate Candy,Classic and Retro Candy

Oh, how I love this commercial. An old school gem from the early 80′s, this is the type of M&M’s commercial that carried the brand through the decade: happy jingles, close up shots of the (now retro!) bag of Plain M&M’s being poured into someone’s hand, and the happy M&M’s themselves, dancing about. Though our M&M friends have gotten a makeover over the past 25 years, what with computer animation, a slightly darker sense of humor, and clearly lower voices, the heart of these commercials remains the same: M&M’s are a fun and delicious candy, and, as the jingle here states: all the world loves them.

Be sure to look for my buddy, Tan M&M, who makes an appearance in this commercial. We will never forget you, Tan M&M! Though I’m not sure if it’s you in the commercial, or Orange M&M, I’m going to choose to believe it’s you! That’s how desperate I am to see a Tan M&M, people!

Also worth noting in this commercial is the computer the two kids are using. I’m pretty sure I played Oregon Trail on that computer in 1986. And I’m also pretty sure that I did it with a bag of M&M’s by my side.

    I too miss the tan M&M. You have no idea of how mad I was when they replaced it with blue! I honestly thought the tan ones tasted best.

    Hey, just looking back at previous reviews. Me and my friend discovered this site when we were browsing the internet. We were taking a class at our college. We ended up totally failing that semester, ’cause we were too busy reading here. Any way long story short- the video review from way back was the article of the day.(You know, the one where Brian eats gummy haggis!) I have been a faithful reader ever since. Thanks for making that year the best first year of college ever.
