New Quiz: What Type of M&M Are You?

What kind of M&M are you? Plain? Peanut? Pretzel?

Do you like M&Ms? I love this delicious little treat. I sometimes eat M&Ms plain, but I really like them as a part of something else. They go great in a salty trail mix, and my all time favorite ice cream from my hometown creamery is M&M. Also, M&Ms are my favorite treat to give out for Halloween, and I put the leftovers in oatmeal cookies. Weird, but strangely delicious.

When I was growing up, there were only a couple kinds of M&Ms – plain and peanut. Now I feel overwhelmed by the variety of M&Ms available, and of course, I love them all. I haven’t found other people to be the same way though – most people I know have an M&M they like and stick to it. And of course, I wonder if this is based on personality…

Do you agree that M&M preference can be linked to your personality? Or do you simply love food quizzes as much as I do? To find out what M&M best suits you, take my latest quiz: What Type of M&M Are You? (Warning! It made me very hungry to write this one.)

New Quiz: What Color Gummy Bear Are You?

What color gummy bear are you?


Do you like gummy bears? They were some of my favorite candy growing up. I liked gummy bears and gummy worms and even gummy root beer bottles. I had nails of steel from all that gelatin I was eating. Over time I lost my taste for gummy candy, although I wouldn’t turn a piece down if it were offered to me. (And I’m still waiting for someone to make a good gummy candy alternative for vegetarians and vegans. Let me know if there is such a thing!)

One gummy thing I am obsessed with as an adult is gummy vitamins. I know it’s a little babyish to take them this way, but they taste great! There’s no risk of choking on a pill (not like that’s a big risk anyway!), and I take my vitamins every day now that they taste like candy. I even have some gummy vitamins that look just like gummy bears, which reminded me… I need to write a gummy bear quiz!

As you may know, most Blogthings quiz ideas come from my own inspirations. I tend to write best when I’ve thought of the idea myself. It’s not ideal, but it’s how I work. Occasionally, though, a quiz idea someone else has come up with really inspires me. That’s how it went with this week’s quiz – even though I wrote it years after it was first submitted.

I had a lot of fun writing What Color Gummy Bear Are You? I love the whimsy of a candy quiz, and I was able to play around with both color and flavor psychology a bit. What you get in return is an outcome that is half food, half color quiz 🙂 Give it a whirl, and let me know what you think.
