Times Square Holiday Spirit

Since I live in the New York City metropolitan area, I tend to pass through Times Square relatively often.

This past week, as the holidays kicked into high gear, the area was teaming with tourists, and I mean, teaming! I felt like Tim Conway playing the old man, trying to make my way through throngs of people. Finally, I had to step out into the street a bit to move at all. I decided to stop and check out the action at the M&M flagship and the Hershey’s store and comparison shop.

My first stop was the M&M store, which was overflowing with customers. There are colored candies and merchandise everywhere, which makes for a mouth-watering display.

I think the core attraction is the wall of M&M dispensers which carry candies in rainbow hues, for customers to make their own personalized assortment.

I love the dispensers and filled a bag myself of my favorite colors: green, purple and blue, with a little aqua mixed in.

Things at the Hershey’s store were a lot more traditional and low key, but still super fun.

Visitors can literally put their name in lights on a neon marquis-like sign or personalize your very own chocolate kiss.

  1. It’s truly amazing to live in New York. So many New Yorkers take for granted of what they have access to.
