Dear Ellen: I really want to be at that meeting!

Sometimes I write letters to Ellen DeGeneres. No particular reason. Just because I can.

Dear Ellen,

I heard back from M&Ms. Here’s their response:

Dear Allison:

Thank you for your email.

We’re pleased to hear you enjoy our M&M’S® Chocolate Candies and appreciate your taking the time to tell us so. Your comments will be shared with our Marketing Associates.

Have a great day!

Your Friends at Mars Chocolate North America

Sooo… recap, I told them that my son wants yellow M&Ms when he pees and brown M&Ms when he poops.  It sounds to me like they’re going to discuss my “comment” during a meeting with their marketing associates.  Wow! I wonder how they’re going to use my comments regarding my son’s color-coding skills to improve their marketing.  Are they going to make commercials about toddlers potty training and have the yellow & brown M&Ms make an appearance? Are they going to start selling a special edition potty training bag of chocolate goodness? Will there be toilets drawn onto each yellow and brown candy? Ooh! Will they have a commercial where the yellow and brown M&Ms are potty training their junior M&Ms? I really want to be at that meeting, Ellen!

  1. That’s freakin awesome! lol I love that your son wants that! I would really enjoy those commercials 😄.

  2. Best marketing campaign EVER!!!

  3. I used to attend those meetings. I wish I could say they were fun, but suits talking about marketing is like watching slugs slime their way across a blade of grass. They’re all serious and boring – even the ones that deal with color coding poop – sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings, but there you have it. Now, the writers on the Ellen show talking about this – that would be fun. I bet they are, too. If they record it, they might let you hear it when you go on the show. You should ask.

  4. Marketing people are always looking for something new and I think your son might be onto something. I hope the heck they do something about it.
