We’ve all been to a coffee shop and had our name misspelled. It’s a unifying experience around which every Jon/John, Tom/Thom, and Mary/Marie can put aside their petty differences and come together to have a good laugh about. M and M’s, the candy with a hard candy shell, knows this, and that’s why they are giving away a year’s supply of their new Caramel Cold Brew candy to 20 lucky misspelled names and the people they are attached to.
Announced in October of last year, it’s been a long road for the new Purple spokescandy. There was a little trans panic that wasn’t at all fabricated to generate outrage. Then all of the brand’s spokescandies were sidelined in a month’s-long stunt culminating in their triumphant return during a Super Bowl ad. And now that there is one less news host to lament the lack of sexuality in an anthropomorphic chocolate, finally it is Purple’s time to shine.
Per the N&M’s website, 62% of Americans have had their name misspelled on a to-go coffee cup, meaning you’ve got a lot of competition. Luckily, there really isn’t much to the entry. All you have to do is go on to the Eminem’s website by April 30th and enter your name, email, and misspelled sobriquet from your well-meaning barista. Names will then be drawn at random the following day, and the 20 winners will receive a year’s supply of Caramel Cold Brew Emonym’s, or 156 single serving packs, worth roughly $135.
So if you’re looking to get your hands on a bag of candy or 156, head on over to the Emend Him’s official website, and perhaps it’ll be your misspelled named ringing out loud and proud.
