CandyRific is expanding its Star Wars M&M's line with branded character flashlights, which will be available April 1. The collection will support the February release of the Star Wars Blu-ray and the 3D theatrical release of Star Wars: Episode I–The Phantom Menace.
Each flashlight features one of three iconic characters: orange clone trooper, yellow Vader and red Darth Maul. A fourth character, blue General Grievous, will be released later in 2012. Each contains a fun size bag of M&M's candies.
The 2011 launch of the M&M's Brand Star Wars line of novelty products included the light-up Lightsaber, which won two “best new product” awards in 2011 from Convenience Store News and the National Confectionery Sales Association.
