M&M World gets referred to in publications as a museum. I’m not sure if this is a mistake on the consumer’s part or if the blame lies on M&M corporate. We wandered into it because I had seen it billed as a “museum”.
However, a museum it is not. It’s a colossal emporium where you can get anything M&M oriented you would like. Just don’t go there looking for a history lesson on the brand.
We went midweek and the place was packed with visitors. That’s an accomplishment because this store is no less than four stories stocked to the rafters with the smiling spokes-candies stamped, embroidered, embossed, and extruded on items that run the gamut of price points. Speaking of prices, I wouldn’t recommend going there looking for a bargain. Even the candy seemed pricy.
If you have a couple grand lying around, they have some trinkets for you.
They even have M&M dog items. This is a bold maneuver because chocolate is toxic to dogs.
I think the thing that fuels purchases at M&M World is something known as the guilt factor. Mom and dad have gone to Vegas for some adult fun and forgot for a while that they’re parents. As a result, they go and buy an overpriced M&M plush item to smooth over things with their little princess who had to stay in the hotel room all night.
