Following the successful launch of products like M&M’S® Pretzel Chocolate Candies, as well as witnessing the admiration her fellow characters enjoy from fans around the world, Ms. Brown decided now was the time to come out from behind-the-scenes and remind the world that M&M’S® candies are absolutely irresistible.

“We are extremely excited to be introducing Ms. Brown to Canada,” says Chantal Templeton, Brand Director, M&M’S®, Mars Canada Inc. “Her experience and knowledge of M&M’S® milk chocolate candies is unparalleled and Canadians will have the chance to enjoy her as much as we do once she is revealed to the Great White North.”

Following the live reveal event, Ms. Brown plans to stay in the national spotlight and will kick things off when she is featured in an exciting new television ad that showcases her character. Canadians will be given an exclusive sneak peak of this ad on the M&M’s Facebook page and will see it when it officially hits airwaves on February 6.
