The London store has some uniquely English-themed merchandise and displays which make the experience all the more local. My favourite part of the store was definitely the rainbow of column-dispensers of all 22 M&M’s colours – in both plain and peanut varieties. There are also a few pre-mixed colour blends and that’s me you can see in the photo, trying to manipulate the lever so that it would drop only one of each colour into my bag of candy to be weighed – harder than it sounds.
And apart from the usual chocolate and T-shirts we brought home, I also came away with this bathmat. We gave the kitschy melamine, Asian-style dinner pieces a miss but, come on, the bathmat was on sale at half price!
