"As a cereal it's dandy, for snacks it's so handy, or eat it like candy. Post Sugar Crisp."
There were other candies which I don't remember having filmed commercials, but the announcer, like Rex Marshall, held a Three Musketeers Bar or a Mars Bar, or a Mason Mint in his hand while he talked it up.

I remember Peter Paul doing a combined spot for Mounds and Almond Joy. "Sometimes, you feel like a nut. Sometimes, you don't."
Otherwise, other than the "M&M melts in your mouth...," which you already mentioned, I can't recall any specific slogans. I'll think.
When Peanut M&M's were introduced, one commercial featured a peanut who was sunning himself beside a swimming pool of chocolate, before he took a dip. When he got out, he reached for a yellow towel ... which he threw over himself, and it turned into a yellow sugar shell.
