    Saw an ad in Sunday's paper for those. Not exactly cheap at $12.99 for a 7 ounce bag. :icon_eek:

    WOW. I wonder how much goes to NFL for each sale.
    I know I' not paying $13 for a 7 oz bag of M&Ms or $140 for a 5 lb box. That's insane!!!

    Awesome idea, but I'm not paying that much.

    Exactly. They have all 32 teams.

    I'm going to assume that a 7oz. bag of regular M&Ms goes for about $3-$4. Assuming that my guess is close, sell them for $6-$7... everyone would buy them. $13... no way!!!

    Not to mention, the $13 doesn't even include shipping.

    Well thank you but I don't think it takes an Einstein to get the point.
    Ingenious idea it is but I can't imagine too many will sell since they jacked the price up so high.
    $6-$7... I'll buy a bag.

    See that... ^^^^^ someone's gonna buy 'em.

    Good for you Syd. You ain't scared of a little ol' price point.

    M&Ms themselves were an ingenious idea.

    M&Ms with custom logos are nothing new and they are simply a clever marketing tool.

    They sell plenty.
