Another choice for the guys is to dress up as a whole bag of the iconic candies instead of one! Visit a fabric store to get enough yellow or gold fabric to create two large rectangles.

Glue the logo and the colored circles to the front piece of your costume. Have the logo run on the diagonal rather than straight across. Join the two pieces using a glue gun over the shoulders.
