Fox News’s “Outnumbered” discussed the new “woke” packaging of M&Ms, which features an “all-female” lineup of characters to promote diversity and inclusivity, with co-host Martha MacCallum noting that China has to be loving the misguided lack of focus in America.
“The parent company for M&Ms, Mars, has debuted new feminist bags of ‘celebrate women everywhere who are flipping the status quo.’ The new brand features an all-female lineup of M&M characters. One includes green and brown M&Ms holding bags on the beach, because I guess that’s all we do as women. I don’t know,” said host Harris Faulkner to set up the segment. “A purple M&M was added to push acceptance and inclusivity.”

“When you look at the package, the women are upside down,” Faulkner continued. “And I understand ‘flipped,’ but thank you very much, we stand on our own. We don’t need to be shown on a package looking crazy upside down.”
“I mean, if this is what you need for validation – an M&M that is the color that you think is associated with feminism – then I’m worried about you,” MacCallum chimed in. “I think that makes China say, ‘Oh, good, keep focusing on that. Keep focusing on giving people their own color M&Ms while we take over all of the mineral deposits in the entire world.”
While some on the left chided MacCallum for the analysis, keep in mind that aside from potential economic effects, the same “woke” disease impacting corporate America is also prevalent in the U.S. military.
“When I was a young girl I was like when I grow up I want to be the purple M&Ms so — no, I’m joking,” co-host Lisa Boothe said. “When I look at M&Ms, I’m like I will eat them and it will taste delicious. This is ridiculous. But to Martha’s point and China is pushing all this through TikTok.”
“Can we just have something nice for a change,” she added. “Can we just enjoy M&Ms without it having to be some bigger?”
Co-host Emily Compagno weighed in to remind her colleagues that Mars had previously stripped the green character of her feminine mystique.
“Once again, there is also stripping everyone of agency because remember, they took the heels off Mrs. Green, or green M&M,” she explained. “They put her in sneakers because wearing heels was somehow detrimental because women who choose to wear heels must not be able to think for themselves. They must be doing it for a bad reason.”
“Everything about this is wrong,” she concluded. “And also, we already have the California raisins being all the different sizes We don’t need M&Ms to be different sizes too.”
