Green Thursdays

In my high school, every Thursday was "Green Thursday" -- a chance to express one's...horniness. This could be enhanced by eating green M&Ms. Dannation's chief correspondent, Mrs. Nation, has learned that this Valentine's Day, green is the new red. In a press release dated Thursday (!), January 16, Mars Snackfoods US announced:

" the new color of love this Valentine's Day as the brand celebrates the myths, rumors and innuendo surrounding green M&M'S® Chocolate Candies. In support of this bold and fun declaration, retail establishments across the country will display limited edition all-green M&M'S® amidst a sea of traditional red and pink products. Consumers can find the all-green M&M'S® in packages from January 2008 through the Valentine's holiday."
The press release even shares stories behind the myth:

"Legend has it The Green Ones® are an aphrodisiac; rumors of their special
powers have been circulating since the '70s. In fact a certain perm-bearing
early '80s rock star had it in his contract for three pounds of Green
M&M'S® Chocolate Candies backstage for, uh, 'inspiration.'"

Gene Simmons could not be reached for comment.
