    Mini M&Ms

    I just determined that the current plastic tubes in which mini M&Ms are being sold hold two rolls of 120. I can't guarantee this will be true of all, but the one red one I tried fit two easily. A few years ago they had shorter tubes in different colors, only some of which fit. So YMMV.

    ...I heard that if they contain ANY green M&Ms that your film will spoil.

    I buy the shorter tubes that hold one roll of 120 with just a little extra room... They work great and you get to eat Mini M&Ms. Add a little coffee and you can't loose. =)

    Qué? You said a container holds two??
    I bought two containers, and each holds just one, with ample "padding" above it. They are the same: MINI M&Ms. And mighty tasty, too.
    But it gets better. I bought several: GREEN for new, RED for exposed; YELLOW for "something's not quite right with this roll", BLACK for "@&$&#! DUD" and BLUE for "XXXX stuff". SORTED!
    All tubes are now in soapy water to remove the label before I put my own labels on to remind the lab to return 'em. Neato!

    Could he have been referring to these:? http://www.amazon.com/Ms-Candies-Cho..._sim_sbs_gro_5

    As compared to these:? http://www.amazon.com/Ms-Chocolate-M..._sim_sbs_gro_1

    You can find anything on APUG

    MattKing Ah so—! They come in long size too, yes? In that case, I'm going back down to the supermarket to buy a few more tubes. I got a strange look from the checkout chick. This time I'll show her the containers, minus-labels, with their new look!

    I've probably got the mid-size e.g. that holds one roll with space to pack a few of the M&Ms at the top for the lovely girl who does the E6 processing (a creative way to a discount!).
    Whatever, this is a cool idea. Perhaps we should now patent it before Apple does?


    Erm...I do have one last query. What am I supposed to do with this growing mountain of M&Ms??

    Maybe hold a chook raffle. Whoever draws the winning ticket gets a bucket of M&Ms...?
    Maybe hold some for Sean for all the good and worthy things he has done for us APUGers? Or just eat 'em? Never seen so many on the desk...
