    As an aside, I went on a tour of the Mars factory once and saw how M&Ms were made. It was like something out of Roald Dahl, I've had people accuse me of making it up!

    If you got to see little singing Oompa Loompas im going to be real jealous.

    Back in my day, ABC played Alice Cooper on the kids cartoons and our cartoons could talk. Being a kid sucks now.

    Haha, I'm afraid there weren't any Oompa Loompas, but I'll share.

    There was a room full of colour-coded cement mixers (well, that's what they looked like). You had to wear a mask, because each of the cement mixers was spraying a very fine, different coloured sugar powder over wee little choc chips.

    Eventually the covered choc chips came out onto a little conveyer belt where they were polished to shiny perfection. Then... Then! They went under a little embossing thing which imprinted the M on each one.

    It.was.so.cute >_<

    Is it bad I feel like you just described Santas workshop and Willy Wonkas factory all rolled into one??
