Mmm…Mars Candy’s Chocolate Relief Act

Mars Candy Chocolate Relief Act

Mars Candy is handing out free candy bars with (as far as we can tell) no catch. It’s part of a new promotion called the Mars Real Chocolate Relief Act, and it’s one you probably shouldn’t let slip by.

All you have to do is head over to RealChocolate.com on any (or every) Friday between now and September 25. Mars Candy will give coupons for free full-size candy bars — your choice of Snickers, Twix, Dove, 3 Musketeers, or M&Ms — to the first 250,000 people who sign in.

The weekly giveaway will open at 9 a.m. ET and close at 11:59 p.m. ET, or whenever 250,000 coupons have been printed.

You’ll have to give some basic info to get the goods: name, e-mail, and mailing address. The coupon will then be mailed your way within five weeks. You can only get one per e-mail address per Friday, and four per mailing address total over the entire five-month period.

Not too shabby.

    At least this way you won't see visible riots outside of restaurants or stores. If Mars can't fulfill the free candy promotion, or if people think that Mars should have provided 2,500,000 per week instead of 250,000, the riots will all be online.

    Of course, as with all of these types of promotions, the question becomes “who will honor the coupons”?

    Very disappointing as I can't even get into the website….and at 8 a.m. Pacific time there is not much time to even try….Maybe you should extend the hours so West Coast people can try your products…
