M&Ms Candy Being Sexualized by Both Liberals and Conservatives
What is wrong with everyone? Why does candy need to be sexualized?
Some liberals and conservatives are ticked off at Mars company, owners of M&M candy, for changing the candy’s avatars. Each color M&M chocolate candy has its own cartoon counterpart – the green M&M candies, for example, have been represented by a green, female candy wearing white go-go boots.
Nobody is happy about this.
Well, maybe MARS is. I’m not sure if the adage about “any publicity is good publicity, even bad publicity” is true here, or if MARS considers that so.
I’ve watched Tucker Carlson enough to get a sense of where he may stand on an issue, and I even listened to part of his M&Ms candy commentary the other night, and granted, I wasn’t listening that carefully, but…
It’s hard for me to say exactly what Carlson thinks about this. I’d have to re-watch the segment to be sure, but from what I recall, it’s hard for me to say if he was being sarcastic about any of this or not.
At any rate, I am so icked out and tired of so many people in American culture sexualizing every thing, whether it’s coming from liberals or conservatives.
To me, M&Ms candy is just candy. I don’t want or need my candy or its cartoon mascots sexualized. It seems like almost everything is sexualized these days.
The most notable changes are to the brown and green M&M’s, the two female characters

On Thursday, candy maker Mars, Incorporated announced that their beloved M&M’s characters would be getting a makeover in 2022, with “a fresh, modern take” on their design and “more nuanced personalities to underscore the importance of self-expression and power of community through storytelling.”
…Their new look will help bring the characters into a “more dynamic, progressive world,” Mars said.
