Print Your Face on Candy

Custom M&Ms make your photos delicious and work great as a party favor (or Valentine present). You can choose from a variety of candy colors and print an image on one side and up to two lines of text on the flip side. When you upload your image, it will automatically be rendered in black and white in the online candy design tools. The final product will show an even more simplified version of your photo so that it's easier to see.
