You Get to Vote for Newest M&M Flavor

By  Mars Chocolate North America, Special for  USDR

The search is on for the next great peanut – M&M’S Peanut that is. In honor of their 75th anniversary, M&M’S is empowering fans to choose the brand’s newest peanut–flavored addition to its iconic line-up in a nationwide “Flavor  Vote.”

M&M’S Peanut – which became an instant classic when it was first introduced in 1954 – will be joined on shelves with a new peanut flavor this fall.  Three new, nut–inspired challengers – Honey Nut, Coffee Nut and Chili Nut – will go head-to-head vying for America’s hearts and stomachs and to win the coveted position of sitting side-by-side with M&M’S® Original Peanut.  Fans of the brand will be able to purchase and taste each of the new flavors for themselves via retailers nationwide and then cast their vote, once a day until June 17 at http://peanutflavor.mms.com or by texting the word “Vote” to  87654.

“At Mars Chocolate North America, we know M&M’S would not be the brand it is today without our fans,” said Tanya Berman, Director, M&M’S Brand. “As we celebrate our 75th Anniversary, ‘Flavor Vote’ is the perfect opportunity to say thanks by empowering them to write the next chapter in our brand’s colorful history by choosing the newest M&M’S Peanut  flavor.”

The Tasting Fun Doesn’t End  Here!
Once fans cast their vote for their favorite new M&M’S Peanut flavor, they are entered for the chance to win* $100,000 and earn the title of the official M&M’S Taste Tester. The winner will be announced in August along with the winner of the ‘Flavor Vote,’ which will remain on retailer shelves  nationwide.

The brand expects to see a “colorful” but friendly competition put on by all of the “Flavor Vote” campaign participants and encourages fans to rally for their favorite using the hashtag  #MMSFlavorVote.
