M&M’s World is a worldwide chain of stores selling M&M products & merchandise. The stores are presented as attractions and located in major tourist spots (New York, Las Vegas, Orlando and London) and predominantly sell merchandise such as toys, clothes, mugs, kitchenware and keychains rather than focussing on chocolate. The first store was opened on the Las Vegas strip in 1997. The shop in London’s Leicester Square was the most recently opened location in summer 2011.
Each store is different and features location-specific decoration – for example, the Las Vegas M&Ms World features a replica of a NASCAR racing car and the London store features a mock-up of a London bus where you can have your photo taken with an M&Ms character.
As well as selling candy in a variety of collectible boxes, M&M’s World stores feature huge glass cylinders, each filled with a single colour, where customers can select their own favourites, pick ‘n’ mix style.
The stores are known for both their size (the 35,000 square foot London M&M’s World is the largest candy store in the world), brightly coloured decor and slightly over enthusiastic staff who are liable to break into song and dance at any moment.
These shops certainly won’t appeal to everyone, and are probably not worth visiting if you’re just looking for interesting chocolate, but those with young children may enjoy the vibrant colours and atmosphere. Be warned though, the merchandise is not cheap at all, so if you’re planning a visit, take plenty of spending money.
