M&M’s dropped bittersweet news on Monday, announcing that the “beloved spokescandies” are too polarizing and that the cartoon chocolates would be put on an “indefinite pause” after widespread backlash to recent changes that were widely considered “woke.”

The candy maker has taken steps to become more inclusive, but those plans have melted away – at least until the Super Bowl on Feb. 12.

“America, let’s talk. In the last year, we’ve made some changes to our beloved spokescandies. We weren’t sure if anyone would even notice. And we definitely didn’t think it would break the internet. But now we get it – even a candy’s shoes can be polarizing. Which was the last thing M&M’s wanted since we’re all about bringing people together,” the company tweeted.


The statement continues: “Therefore, we have decided to take an indefinite pause from the spokescandies. In their place, we are proud to introduce a spokesperson America can agree on: the beloved Maya Rudolph. We are confident Ms. Rudolph will champion the power of fun to create a world where everyone feels they belong.”

In September, M&M rolled out it’s newest spokescandy, Purple, “designed to represent acceptance and inclusivity.”

Now, instead of reverting back to the M&M spokescandies everyone loved, the company has decided to just eliminate them entirely.

Alec Sears, who serves as Social Media and Digital Strategy for the GOP, tweeted, “Oh my god, they killed the M&M candy people. They took them outside one by one and shot them in the back of the head.”

Radio host Jason Rantz tweeted, “You mean, your sales dipped after going woke and you don’t want to admit it outright?”

“Someone realized what the old saying, “Go woke, Go Broke” means…” mocked comedian Tim Young.

  1. I buy where I can get the best prices but I also try as hard as possible to limit what I buy from those places and take the rest of my business to unwoke businesses.

  2. Your “global VP” needs to go back to marketing school. People don’t care if your candy is “inclusive,” — whatever the hell that means — and they don’t want to be preached to by a candy company.

  3. Not only did I stop buying them because of this woke crap I also stopped eating them because of all the dyes they use are harmful to your body!

  4. I love M&M but not anymore. I stopped buying m&m and Hershey’s since last year because they went woke. So adios. Go Woke go broke.

    • I also STOPPED buying Ben and Jerry’s ice cream too! They are SUPER WOKE! Crazy expensive too! I will NEVER buy their ice cream again! I wrote them and told them too! I encourage everyone who is boycotting to write letters to these companies!

  5. Stupid is as stupid does . What possible advantage did they think they were getting marketing to 2% of the population ? The insane ones at that ?

  6. M&M’s needs to stay in the candy business but get out of the psychology department. It’s ridiculous! Just make colored candy and be DONE!!

  7. Absolutely everyone of them, if only everyone in America would we could stop all of this f’n bull💩. Too many hypocrites is the real problem

  8. I don’t have to worry about having to boycott them. I don’t eat any of their candy. It’s just way to sweet for me and I don’t like peanuts either.

  9. I HAVE ABSOLUTELY STOPPED SUPPORTING ALL OF THESE WOKE COMPANIES AND HAVE BECOME AN EVANGELIST FOR SMALL CONSERVATIVE LOCAL BUSINESSES!

  10. First Disney’s had to fire their CEO for their transgender crap and now the spokecandies. NEXT!!!
    PS Here’s a hint
    Never bring up transgender in your work
    business where children are concern.
    No brainer guys! Just saying!

  11. M&Ms doesn’t want a conversation. They want patronage. And they obviously don’t “get it” if they’re hiring Maya Rudolph to be their spokesperson.

  12. Christy Hutcherson has said to boycott because these Woke companies whovare participating in the destruction of our country and our freedom. M&Ms is my favorite candy. I am buying other brands from Trader Joe’s and Sprouts. Don’t support those funding the loss of our constitutional rights.
