Cristina Saralegui will soon become a yellow M&M! Her chocolately character will appear with heels, and holding as part of the company’s publicity campaign called Inner M.

“It’s incredible to be an M&M. These chocolates are so integral to U.S. culture, and I think they really captured my personality,” said the 60-year-old Cuban-American. “I hope my little grandchild Domenic will understand that his grandmother is a candy.”

Michele Kessler, vice president of the Mars Snackfood US company, considers Cristina to be a “great ambassador of the brand. She lives life with passion and humor, and I think her Inner M character reflects that.”
