M&M's World, New York City
If you are a lover of M&Ms candies, you might want to spend a little time at the M&M store, located on the NW corner of Broadway/7th Avenue and 47th Street West.
They've placed just about anything remotely associated with M&Ms candies on display and for sale at this place, and it's almost shocking to imagine and see what a cottage industry this simple candy has begat.
What to buy: The first thing, of course, would be M&M candies. One interesting thing is that they have them in a plethora of "non-standard colors" and combinations. So, perhaps you can select them in your school colors. Garnet and gold for Florida State sounds quite nice.
There are also t-shirts and scarves and socks and underwear and bobblehead dolls and mirrors and lampshades and sweatshirts and shoes and toys and.... you get the idea.... all with the M&Ms logo.
Fun stuff for M&M lovers.
What to pay: Depends on what you buy, obviously. Bottom line on the candy... M&Ms in bulk are $9/pound.
This is a dream for people who just can't get enough of those magical chocolates!
They provide you with anything, ranging from the candy (duh) to clothing, toys, gadgets...you name it!
Even if you don't want to spend your money, it's just fun to walk around the three floors. The store is rather pricey, but the atmosphere is just awesome.
It does get crowdy, especially during the evenings.
What to buy: They have some really cool NY-branded clothing.
What to pay: It depends what you're looking for. For a T-Shirt, count between 25-35USD
Well, you know about those M&M chocolates which are sold worldwide. There is a store... 3 levels of it... dedicated to the M&M chocolates. You can buy the chocolates themselves of course. You can buy only your favourite colour if you wish! But, of course, you can buy M&M memorabilia... clothing, pillows, jewellery, watches, pyjamas, etc.
It's a fun store to be in, so check it out!
What to buy: Chocolates and memorabilia.
What to pay: From $1.00 up.
M&M's World is a whole store dedicated to, obviously, M&M's, but you most likely won't buy candy there.
You're probably going to fall for one of the many surprising M&M articles: clothing, games, collectibles, etc. found on all three floors.
Make a stop there, the variety of articles is just unbelievable!
Three stories, 2500 square feet of everything M&Ms - themed dispensers, plush toys, designer colors, apparel, souvenirs - even 4 pressed penny machines and a photo booth! If you want to feel - literally - like a kid in a candy store, you have GOT to visit M&Ms World New York!
What to buy: We got our photo taken in the photo booth with the Statue of Liberty green M&M and I got two pressed pennies for my collection. The array of things you can buy is astounding! They have New York-themed M&M stuff too, so you can start -or finish- your souvenir shopping here!
What to pay: The photo booth picture was $5 - a small statue of liberty M&M's box was $9.99; a green M&Ms ladies sleep shirt was $18.99
The M&M store at Times Square is another example of a typical American store. They offer almost every product you can think of with M&M's or with images of M&M'S. From t-shirts, china, bags, stuffed animals... And o yes they also sell the candy M&M, in every size and color you can imagine!
