HACKETTSTOWN, N.J., Dec. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- M&M'S® newest addition to the chocolate aisle – M&M'S Chocolate Bars – are now rolling out in retail stores nationwide in five delicious flavor varieties including Peanut, Milk Chocolate, Crispy, Almond and Crispy Mint. The new bars consist of smooth milk chocolate with whole M&M'S Minis throughout a large bar format.
M&M'S Chocolate Bars mark one of the most notable product innovations in the brand's history. The new permanent additions to the brand's iconic candy lineup are the result of several years of development. A team of M&M'S Chocolate product developers tested nine flavors and four different formats before landing on the perfect recipe and shape to ensure each piece includes the ideal ratio of smooth chocolate and crunchy M&M'S Minis.
To celebrate the launch, M&M'S is bringing M&M'S Chocolate Bars to life with a pop-up in New York City dubbed – you guessed it – The M&M'S Chocolate Bar. Taking place Friday, December 7 through Sunday, December 9, M&M'S is offering fans the chance to take a break from the stressful chaos of holiday shopping by immersing themselves in a spontaneously fun environment.
"We aim to create innovative ways for our fans to enjoy M&M'S, and the new M&M'S Chocolate Bars embody that spirit with a taste experience unlike any other," said Allison Miazga-Bedrick, Brand Director, M&M'S. "We can't wait to offer holiday shoppers their first try of the creamy, delicious flavors through an experience that reminds all of us to take time out to truly enjoy this season."
The colorful pop-up will include a larger-than-life Velcro wall where attendees can get 'stuck' in a chocolate bar just like the M&M'S Minis, share a ride on an M&M'S Chocolate Bar-themed sled and engage through many other fun – and tasty – activities. Guests will be able to cozy up to the 'bar' for coffee or hot cocoa, snap Insta-worthy photos throughout the space and be among the first to taste the new product. The experience is free and open throughout the weekend. Details are as follows:
Date: Friday, December 7 - Sunday, December 9, 2018
Time: 10:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. ET
Location: 14th Street Garage @ 459 West 14th Street, New York, NY 10014
