Panoramic Craziness

Check out the photo I took last night. It would be better if it wasn't so hazy, but I probably won't be able to access the site anymore after a few days. A fall one would be amazing.

For those who don't know what this is, it's my town. If you look at the high resolution version and go all the way to the right, the tan building with smoke coming out is where your M&M's are made.


you would think that if M&Ms were made there NJ would smell good
Depending on the wind direction, it does smell like chocolate here occasionally.

It's when you go east of here towards New York City that it starts to smell like garbage and raw sewage.
So where is it?
Where is what?
I must have missed the line about it being your town. Is it still Hackettstown?
Yeah... Hackettstown is in a valley, so anything inside the mountains is the actual town.
you live in m&m town?? that's awesome.. as is the photo :)
Yes, the headquarters of Mars Incorporated. Most of the town works there. They only actually make a few products here, though it smells like chocolate occasionally.

So if you ever want to visit, pick up a package of M&M's, Snickers, Skittles, Starbust and go to the town listed. :)
can you take tours?? i didn't know that a) they were based in nj or b) that you were based in nj
Not public tours. If you know someone that works there and you have a group, then maybe, but I think they stopped that.

They do offer events in the area where they give away tons of free candy.

They were founded in Chicago I think, but the headquarters moved here at some point. Very few of their products are made here, I think maybe just M&M's and Skittles.

And yes we are both based in NJ.
i want skittles!!
They do make mouths happy.
damn right!! i need a happy mouth!!
