M&M's by color

Anyone know where to buy M&M's by color in the area?
I am getting married in March and is getting personalized M&M's for the favors but with as many as I need it is getting spendy so my idea is to mix the personalized ones with blank ones of the same color. Is there a place to buy M&M's in bulk in specific colors?

Thank you!!

  1. Go to www.mym& something like that. You can order m & m's in any color/combo you want.

        The Sweet Factory - wouldn't let me post a link, but there are various stores in Bay Area Malls (San Mateo, Concord, Hayward, Pleasanton). It looks like you can buy them in 1lb. (14.75) or 5lb. (74.75) bags online (

          The 5.99 and 7oz is if you want them personalized. You can buy all the colors in 5lb bags... you have to pick a color and then the choice box lets you pick either 7 oz or 5lbs.

          If you only want special colors with no writing... here you go:

        2. You can buy them in San Francisco at Miette Confiserie here:

          449 Octavia Boulevard

          1. I don't know if it qualifies as "in the area" but I remember buying M&Ms by the color at a candy store (might have been either Candyland or Candy Baron) on Cannery Row in Monterey. They were in separate containers by color just like the jelly bellys (which they also had a good selection of). You also might want to try emailing the company and asking what retailers in the Bay Area carry their colors in bulk.

            1. You might try the Basic Brown Bear Factory... I've heard they sell them there.
