Unfortunately there are bullies everywhere. We encounter them in the work place, at school, in our neighborhoods. They are mean, pushy, and rude. And today, the justice system has failed us once again by letting one of the most notorious bullies go free. The Red M&M. Yes, that is right. After a two-month long investigation the Advertising Bureau in Australia has decided that the Red M&M’s behavior in ads where he berates M&Ms of other colors are “humorous rather than bullying.” As you can imagine people are furious to see such a hardened shell criminal walk free. As one disgruntled critic says, “Children will see this as a normal way of life as the M&Ms portray to them those they mix with at school.” What kind of a world are we living in if we can no longer allow candy commercials to teach our kids ethics and values?
Thankfully there are still some candies we can believe in. Occasionally stores like Wal-greens or CVS will have sales on their candy and when they do I like to grab one or two and keep them in a hidden stash in my house. I can’t tell you where in case my husband is reading (hi Sam!) but they make it really easy to say thank you, good luck, or I love you. Just grab a box of candy, pop on a cute tag, and you can brighten someone’s day. Just make sure you stay away from M&M’s. That Red one is dangerous.
