I usually get my M&M's for less than a dollar when they go 75% off after the holidays.
And you're telling us WHY? Oh, because the "holidays" are over and you can't get that deal now. Valentine's Day was just a couple of weeks ago, so clearance candy potential was recent. Easter is coming up in a month, meaning another holiday clearance is upcoming. Savvy shoppers know this and can anticipate clearance sales to get the best deals on candy. Nobody "needs" M&Ms.
You are lucky. I was in a B&M today, and wanted to buy soda. Fully stocked refrigerator. Fresh looking bottles. First choice: Sprite. Exp 11/12. All of them. Second choice: Dr. Pepper. Exp 7/12. All of them. Third choice: Minute Maid lemonade. Exp 6/12. All of them. You get the idea.... Brought it to the manager's attention. She could not believe it. Said fresh delivery had come in. Found some Coke exp 3/13. She said I could take as many as I wanted. For free. What was I gonna do? My sixth choice, if you can call it that. I was thirsty. I took one.

good deal but not good for your health nor teeth
They put M&M's in some versions of MRE's. If the plastic packaging is sealed and they are not melted, the things will last a long time. The single serving packs in the wax paper packaging probably created a standard shorter sell by date.
M&M's are a great favorite candy to have because they will stay good for a long time after things go south. When all the twinkies and nutty bars have spoiled M&M's will be just like new.
Person who bought $350 worth should store them in a large airtight military ammo can. Betcha they'd be good for several years.
