Custom Printed M&Ms for Valentine's Day, $3.99 to $7.99 per bag

The Daily Deal for January 30, 2008 is free shipping on custom printed M&Ms. If you're not familiar with the promotion, Mars, Inc. allows customers to print detailed messages on the back of M&Ms instead of just the usual "m" emblazoned on the front of each candy.

What chocoholic wouldn't be won over by the words "Marry me?" or a simple "I love you" in the sweetheart blend (white, dark pink and pink M&Ms)? Seven ounce bags cost $7.99 (minimum purchase of 4) and 1.7 ounce gift bags are $3.99 (minimum of 20 bags). Each candy can be printed with up to two lines of text with 8 characters per line. Make sure you keep it clean -- the company won't print profanities. Log on to and enter the promotions code "Valentine39" at checkout. The promotion ends March 15, but order by February 1 to receive the candies in time for Valentine's Day.

Otherwise, the possibilities are endless, as a party favor for everything from birthdays to bar mitzvahs (M&Ms are kosher). The candies come in 22 colors -- try green for St. Patty's Day or a pastel collection of Easter candies. Businesses can also put their logo on M&Ms as a promotional tool.
