I like personalized things. Be it an apron or napkins with initials OR a candy with your blog’s name on it!
I can see the envy in your eye, fellow blogger!
Well , let me tell you… It was not very easy to get. Especially when your blog’s name sounds like a real cafe. Upon my order, a customer representative from M&M emailed me a very long and detailed agreement asking me to sign and basically promise that I will not market, resell or otherwise distribute these candies to any third party for commercial purposes.
I wasn’t surprised at all. But even tough I had no intentions of selling the product to a third party, I was not willing to sign anything for a pack (actually 4 packs is the minimum order and it is a lot – even for me) of candies.
I emailed the customer rep. and explained that it was not meant to be sold in a cafe, and that Cafe Fernando is actually the name of my blog. Jamie turned out be a very understanding customer representative. So thank you again, Jamie.
Back to the candies… You can choose up to two colors available on their website and have two lines with up to eight letters printed on them. Don’t let the flash animation displaying your choice of words printed so nicely on the screen fool you. That is not what you get.
The letters on the candies are not that sharp and crisp. Especially if you choose to have a word composed of 8 letters. I also ordered another set with only 5 letters and it is considerably nicer. But still not as sharp as they display online before you put in your order.
All and all, I think personalized candy is still a great idea.
LOL – that’s fantastic! Who woulda thought – personalised M&Ms… Thanks for a great contribution to SHF 🙂
What a perfect and special idea!
I would like to see and meet with u actually.
Is it possible for us to see u in Harvey Nichols?
Are you going to the cafe cuppa sometimes???
Please kiss ralph 🙂
Thanks Didem. I usually go to Cuppa on Saturdays at noon to drop off cookies in person. Hope to meet you soon!
Looks so cute! I like them more than regular m&ms :))
There’s definitely envy over here, these are very cute.
M&Ms are great idea! And could you please write down the recipe of cookies?
I used the recipe at Williams Sonoma’s website this time around. Here is the link:
Just type Chocolate Chip Cookie in the search bar (the link was too long for the comments section)
Excellent idea. But tell me how did you convice them to delivery abroad? If im not wrong they dont sell outside of USA.
Can you give me a clou so i could do the same to get this fantastic M&M to my wedding here in Brazil?
thank you in advance.
Actually you are right. They only ship within USA. I own a mailbox in USA which forwards all my shipments to my Turkish address; the website is called http://www.myus.com. You pay a yearly fee and then the amount of the shipment from the mailbox to your address. They send via DHL and I usually receive the shipment on the 2nd day. Their service is pretty good; highly recommended!
thank you very much for your help and prompt answer. Ill check this website. This will solve many of my problems with impossible desires of USA products. hehe
it look very nice 🙂
I use a service with http://www.BongoUS.com to delivery my goods out of the US – it’s a very good account to have if you shop online regular, they can send an image and make sure your purchase is correct color, etc before you ship, cool service!
My mom ordered these for my graduation, and although it wasn’t a big hassle, the words weren’t very clear either. I wish they would have been because it was pretty cool, but when you can’t read them very well, it’s not AS cool. Kudos.
my now husband ordered these for my birthday 4 years ago… i still have one unopened bag to remember!!!
Martina – It’s been more than five years and I still have one unopened bag, too!
