If you’re hungry for the Phoenix Suns, don’t worry, you’re in luck. World-renowned candy company Mars Inc. has partnered with the NBA to create team-logoed M&M’s to be sold on-line.
Phoenix fans that are interested in picking up Suns M&M’s, can either head to the NBA Store in New York or order them online at mymms.com/nba. There is a three-bag minimum (7-ounces each) for each order, costing $38.97.
For a five-pound bag, the cost changes to $140. But for comparison purposes, non-logoed bags of M&M’s are sold on Amazon for $15.09 per 56-ounce bag.
The NBA now joins MLB and the NFL as professional sports leagues that offer custom-made M&M’s. The deal between the NBA and Mars is first confection deal with the NBA since the league worked with Nestle more than 10 years ago.
The link between the Suns and M&M’s appears to run deep. The orange M&M made its debut to the world in 1976, the same year that Planet Orange and the Suns made their first appearance in the NBA Finals. Coincidence? We think not.
Maybe the debut of a Phoenix Suns M&M will bring about a return the Finals? Now that may seem like a reach to those reading at home, but we’re standing by it.
