M&M Duels...

Whenever I get a package of plain M&Ms, I make it my duty to continue the strength and robustness of the candy as a species. To this end, I hold M&M duels.

Taking two candies between my thumb and forefinger, I apply pressure, squeezing them together until one of them cracks and splinters. That is the "loser," and I eat the inferior one immediately. The winner gets to go another round.

I have found that, in general, the brown and red M&Ms are tougher, and the newer blue ones are genetically inferior. I have hypothesized that the blue M&Ms as a race cannot survive long in the intense theatre of competition that is the modern candy and snack-food world.

Occasionally I will get a mutation, a candy that is misshapen, or pointier, or flatter than the rest. Almost invariably this proves to be a weakness, but on very rare occasions it gives the candy extra strength. In this way, the species continues to adapt to its environment.

When I reach the end of the pack, I am left with one M&M, the strongest of the herd. Since it would make no sense to eat this one as well, I pack it neatly in an envelope and send it to M&M Mars, A Division of Mars, Inc., Hackettstown, NJ 17840-1503 U.S.A., along with a 3x5 card reading, "Please use this M&M for breeding purposes."

This week they wrote back to thank me, and sent me a coupon for a free 1/2 pound bag of plain M&Ms. I consider this "grant money." I have set aside the weekend for a grand tournament. From a field of hundreds, we will discover the True Champion.

The peanut M&Ms are an offshoot species. Originally regular M&Ms, they came into existence through mutation. However, peanut M&Ms have established themselves as a new and superior species, and were it for the efforts of individuals like me to strengthen the original M&Ms species, then the originals would have become extinct a long time ago. I have attempted to duel peanut ones, and have found that they are tougher than their predecessors and cause significant damage to one's forefinger if they are squeezed incessantly.

Have you tried it with any other food types? Grapes might be fun.

I've tried to duel apples before, which worked well (all you need is two people, two cricket bats and goggles - citric acid can be a *****).
