Sweeten up Your Bank Checks with Chocolaty M&M's
Would you like to make your personal bank checks just a little bit sweeter? Do you have a sweet tooth that can only be fixed with a handful of chocolaty M&Ms? If so, then you might find that M&M checks not only look great, but are a constant reminder of your favorite snack.
Originating in 1941, M&Ms are now sold all over the world. Everyone loves them for their colorful candy shells and their mouthwatering chocolate or peanut butter centers. Forrest Mars, the founder of the Mars Company, first got the idea for this delicious candy when he saw soldiers eating chocolate pellets with hard shells during the Spanish Civil War in the 1930s. The hard shells kept the chocolate candies from melting.
Production for what we now call M&Ms started in 1941 in Newark, New Jersey. The two "M"s stand for Forest Mars Sr. and Bruce Murrie, the son of William Murrie, Hershey's president. When they first started being produced, they were made in violet, red, yellow, brown, and green and came in a cardboard tube.
Peanut M&Ms came out in 1954 and today you can find peanut butter M&Ms, peanut M&Ms, and M&Ms with dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and mint chocolate.
You don't have to settle on just one kind of M&M checks, either. There are several different series to choose from. You can even have holiday inspired checks that feature M&Ms, too!
For instance, if February rolls around and you would like to ring in Valentine's Day with something a little special in your purse, then you might want to consider the M&M's Valentine's Checks. These checks contain images of Yellow, Blue, Red, and Green. You can also purchase a matching leather checkbook cover to go along with your M&M checks, too.
At Christmastime, you can take your favorite M&Ms shopping with you when you purchase the Christmas themed checks. These checks have images of Orange, Red, Green, and Yellow as they prepare to ring in the holidays. Coordinating accessories are also available with these checks, too.
Of course, you don't have to purchase holiday-themed checks. There are also M&M check series that feature colorful images of your favorite M&Ms at play and these can be carried and used year round. Most of the M&M checks come with 4 rotating images so each check that you write will be different from the one before it.
If you decide to order M&M personal checks then keep in mind that by purchasing them online you can save as much as 50% off the cost that your bank might have charged you for them. Plus, you will have a larger selection of check designs to choose from. It only takes a few minutes to order your checks and you should receive them in about 5 days. That might even be faster than your bank got them to you in the past! Just remember to have your routing number and checking account number handy when you place your order.
