Based on M&M’S® Philippines’ official tally as of May 20, the Red character was the top choice of M&M’S® fans, garnering 10,243 posts or 47% of the total votes. This “candydate” is personified by a tough and brave chief who believes in the importance of rules and being on time. This leader is also quick on his feet and can easily adapt to stressful situations.

With 4,547 social media posts, the Yellow character came in third with 21% of the votes. Yellow represents friendly individuals who prefer a casual, down-to-earth, and service-oriented style of leadership.
The campaign generated 21,762 valid entries among more than 30,000 responses across Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
But the M&M’S® candy-dates aren’t the only winners as twenty voters also won PHP 5,000 and 50 winners won M&M’S® merchandise.
