White House M & M’s

 I was so busy celebrating the first birthday of my blog and the 6 month anniversary of Cluttercast that I didn’t post something in honor of Independence Day.    I will now—because it turns out that I have something very patriotic—and special—in my clutter.

From the NBC Brian Williams special on Obama, the world learned that the snack of choice inside the Obama White house is M&M’s, which are all over the White House in specially made little boxes.  If you click here you can see a picture of Obama on the plane with one of the boxes next to him,and an explanation in the comments.

This is one of those same boxes, which I saved when a friend of mine took my kids and me to lunch in the White House dining room when Clinton was president.  It was a lunch we’ll never forget.  I kept a few boxes as souvenirs and never opened them.    I thought I’d give one  to someone who hasn’t had the chance to visit the White House personally.

There’s one box; I took the photo so you can see both sides.  Remember these are from the Clinton years——so think of this box as a souvenir– not a snack.   I’m a chocoholic but even I’ve never been that desperate.

 HOW TO WIN:   If you would like to have this item, please  let me know in a comment  WHY you would like it.   If you know someone else who might like it, I hope you’ll share this and let them know.

    My daughter Kat, would love to give this to her neurosurgeon @Stanford University Dr. Edwards. who is a lover on M&Ms. After her surgery last September, Kat was interested in this area of medicine and she is spending time in the neurosurgery area this summer. It would be a super way to say thank you to a world-class surgeon…

    I would like to give these to my boss. He collects political memorabilia…our office is covered in it and this would be a great addition to his collection.

    I would love to get it for my 9 year old son. He loves to read and is always giving facts on presidents. His favorites are Lincoln, Kennedy, and Clinton. So this would be wonderful and so special to him. We lived near D.C but never made a White House tour like he wanted.
