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.
