Have you seen that m&ms are now available in packages of a single color? There are even some extra colors available that aren't in the regular mix. So you can match your m&ms to your decor or outfit or mood or whatever.
They're not gourmet, but m&ms do kick ass. When I was little, we didn't have sweets often, but whenever we did have m&ms, my mother would open all the packages and sort them by color to make sure that each of us 4 kids got equal numbers of each color. She also counted out the meatballs in our spaghettios.This really wasn't necessary for our sake. I don't think any of us really cared. But she says it was very important to her that none of us suspect favoritism.
