As Halloween approaches, Mars Wrigley—producer of some of the well-known candy brands such as M&M'S, SNICKERS and SKITTLES—has announced its Halloween plans to bring fun to Newark, Chicago, Washington D.C., and Toronto.

82% of consumers plan to celebrate Halloween in 2021 and 45% plan to attend a community Halloween party. With that in mind, Mars Wrigley will support local communities it serves by hosting a variety of celebrations in:

  • Newark, New Jersey: Home of its Mars Wrigley U.S. headquarters
  • Chicago, Illinois: Mars Wrigley global headquarters
  • Washington, D.C.: Proximate to Mars, Incorporated global headquarters
  • Toronto, Ontario: Mars Wrigley Canada head office

The M&M'S Halloween Treat Truck will appear in Newark, Toronto and Washington, DC this year. The truck will distribute Mars Wrigley treats to members of the community and frontline workers in select locations in those markets.

Mars Wrigley is also sponsoring the City of Chicago’s Halloweek 2021, which celebrates Halloween safely in the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and will return this year with more excitement for the community.

“Mars Wrigley is proud to support our local communities,” says Tim LeBel, chief Halloween officer at Mars Wrigley. “No matter how you plan to celebrate, we’re making sure consumers have what they need to create better moments this Halloween season.”
