Going Crazy In M&M’s World | Las Vegas, USA
Crowds usually flock to Vegas for the casinos, endless buffet options, and the long strip of clubs and bars. It is, after all, a city known for its overindulgence, be it booze, cash and chips to bet with, or scantily clad women – cue in the phrase, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.”
As much as I’d like to say that Vergs and I are still in the cool Red Bull crowd we once were a part of, we’ve pretty much taken a total 180. Late nights in clubs have turned into binge watching sessions – with us switching from genres of suspense and drama to comedy. Jagerbombs and tequila shots are now swapped for glasses of wine with a side of tapas. Not complaining, of course, but maaaaan, have we changed since becoming a couple a few years back. I mean, now it’s like we’re more excited to go to a candy store than a bar.
- The famous color wall. It’s pure happiness, I tell you.
The massive M&M’s World near the Las Vegas strip is beyond all expectations. It’s 4 different floors of chocolates and knick knacks – the top floor even had a mini movie theater where you could put 3D glasses on and watch a quick film. It’s basically its own Willy Wonka chocolate zone sans the chocolate fountain, forest, and Oompa Loompas. I kid you not, it’s like I had a sugar high just looking at everything in the store.
The main highlights of the M&M’s World had to be its 2nd and 3rd floors. The 2nd floor’s main feature (as seen in the photos above) is its color wall. It has a dedicated area of clear tubes with all the colors of the rainbow and all the mixes M&M’s has ever done.
The way it works is you grab a bag at the ends of the wall and fill it to your heart’s content. The bag is priced per half pound though, so unless you’re okay with coughing up an exorbitant amount for chocolates, I recommend controlling trigger-happy tendencies – easier said than done, of course.
I do however, suggest zeroing in on the flavors and colors you haven’t seen before. Personally, I went ham on the pastel colored M&M’s and got a separate bag for the nut flavors. If I’m not mistaken, they change some flavor mixes according to the season. I think they had tubes of Pecan Pie and Butterscotch recently. What I’d give to try a bag of those…
The third floor is another favorite because it’s where you can customize your own pack of M&M’s. Anything from the size of the packaging, to the colors of M&M’s, right down to the words you want printed on the candy coated chocolates.
Tip: Pick light colored M&Ms for your personalized candy. It’ll make the ink pop out more. The regular colors of red and blue won’t do much justice to the print.
Disclaimer: It’s been months since our Vegas trip and I have to say, our cup of personalized M&M’s remains untouched. Call it being sentimental but a part of me wants to hold on to the memories just a little bit longer.
Also, I’m still wondering if I should do another Vegas post. Guess we’ll all have to wait and see!
