Special Edition Nascar Fan
Candyriffic produced special edition M&Ms nascar fans, due to M&Ms partnership with Nascar. these are the most collectable, since they are both an M&Ms and Nascar collectable. Only one style was available, and it was Red in a nascar outfit, and he was a brand new sculpt! as of 2012, these are becoming hard to find.
Ms. Brown Fan
Candyriffic also produced a Ms. Brown fan soon after she was introduced. She did not debut in a new line, and was just mixed in to the basic line assortment.
Breast Cancer Awareness Ms. Green Fan
candyriffic produced a Special edition Breast cancer awareness Ms. Green fan. She is the rarest out of all the fans because it was such a good seller, and a great way to spread awareness of breast cancer.
M&Ms Star Wars fans
Candy riffic also produced star wars M&M fans. They include new sculpts of Red, Yellow, and Ms. Green dressed as different star wars characters.
Trivia: This was the first time a variant fan of Yellow was produced. the fan is Yellow dressed as Darth vader.
Star Wars Series 2 Fans
The original M&M star wars fans were so succsesful that a new line with 3 new fans was produced! They include a re release of Yellow, a new Red, and Blue and Orange, all dresses as star wars characters.
Trivia: This was the first time an orange variant was made
M&Ms Transformers Fans
Yet again, M&Ms made another cross over to produce new candy fans. these are fans of only Red and Yellow, dressed as optimus prime (Red) and Bumble bee (Yellow)
Trivia: this line had another Yellow variant, the first one was in the star wars line.
