I visited London’s M&M’s World in April this year. Not really sure why, because I don’t like M&Ms but we were walking past so thought we’d have a look. You can smell the sugar from outside.
There are various giant M&M figures doing “British things” e.g. driving a red bus, being a queen’s guard etc. This one was called “M&Ms Road” after the famous Beetles Abbey Road album cover… The main feeling I had upon entering was confusion. Why does this exist? Are M&Ms even British (I think not)? How much sugar can be absorbed by inhalation?
There are four floors of ridiculous merchandise such as cushions, dishes, office supplies, clothing and more. I can only imagine that tourists buy these things as joke souvenirs. I do have a penchant for bizarre Christmas tree decorations so was tempted by this one but I restrained myself as it was April.
I did genuinely love this t-shirt though. I regret not buying it as I love wearing silly t-shirts around the house. I thought it would be too narcissistic but that’s kinda why I liked it.
My favorite part was a random gallery area with M&Ms painted as well known British characters. It made no sense to me whatsoever but I went with it…
I didn’t know Robin Hood was a British character until I googled it just now. Who knew that visiting M&M’s World could be an educational experience?
M&M Shakespeare, this is so crazy and random. Of course if you actually like M&Ms maybe you’d enjoy this more. I’m not a huge fan of sweets so it was wasted on me…
