Where are the m's? :?

Good heavens what a burst of colors. I didn't even think about the sweetness just the intensity of the colors.

Some trivia from the Mars Home Page:

Who would have guessed that the idea for M&M'S® Plain Chocolate Candies was hatched against the backdrop of the Spanish Civil War? Legend has it that, while on a trip to Spain, Forrest Mars Sr. encountered soldiers who were eating pellets of chocolate encased in a hard sugary coating. This prevented it from melting. Inspired by this idea, Mr. Mars went back to his kitchen and invented the recipe for M&M'S® Plain Chocolate Candies.

M&M'S® Chocolate Candies were first sold in 1941, and soon became a favorite of the American GIs serving in World War II. Packaged in cardboard tubes, they were sold to the military as a convenient snack that traveled well in any climate. By the late 1940s, they were widely available to the public, who gave them an excellent reception. In 1948, their packaging changed from a tube form to the characteristic brown pouch we know today.

Lovely and colorful circles.

Aloha

ahh, the magic of Photoshop! i wanted just the colors, not the logo, so a little work in PS, and presto! of course, i suppose i could just as easily have simply turned each one blank side up, but the idea didn't occur to me until i looked at the original,and by then, i'd eaten the subject!! :O

I've seen some subjects over in the portrait section of the forum that some folks think are luscious enough to eat but you're the first I've actually heard confessing to eating one's own subject.

Cheers.
