Why wait to shop for MARS® Chocolates, hover over the picture above to find your chocolate at! Santa Claus is coming to town and that means he needs some milk and chocolate! This is the season to make gifts for family and friends. It is also a great time to get together with friends to make crafts and put together gifts for others while listen to Christmas music! I may not be a cookie maker but I sure can whip up some chocolate milk. To make the chocolate milk even more festive just add a little “Holiday Magic” mix, which includes M&M’S® and mini marshmallows. It really is a magic mix because of how tasty it is with M&M’S® Brand Holiday Milk Chocolate Candies, M&M’S® White Peppermint, and the small marshmallows. For the mix I used Ball® 4 oz Mini Jars. I’m surprised I had any left to give to friends after tasting the mix a few times. I kept going back for more. However this time of year is truly about spending time with friends and giving. For every purchase of M&M’S® Brand Chocolate Candies (9.4 oz or larger) at Walmart between 11/01/2017 and 12/25/2017, Mars Chocolate Inc.® will donate $5.00 to Feeding America® on behalf of its national network of food banks to secure and deliver one (1) half gallon of milk or more based on local markets. Maximum donation of $75,000. It is the sweetest gift to spend time with friends putting together gifts and sharing those gifts with others. The Great American Milk Drive makes the impact of your gifts go even further and makes them extra special! Treat them to the sweetest gift.
