The idea of this candy comes from the Spanish Civil War, when the founderís son of the Mars Company, Forrest Mars Sr., was in Spain.

Upon his return to the U.S, Mars wants to create something similar from the soldiersí snacks. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the famous M&Mís were created.

M&Mís were first sold to the public in 1941, during World War II. The soldiers during the Spanish Civil War has their snacks placed in a long tube. In Marís creation, a cardboard tube was used to sell the candies to the public. In 1948, changes in packaging occurred - from a cardboard tube to a small brown pouch. ĎMilk chocolate melts in your mouth, not in your handsí is the candyís slogan. M&Mís vary in color and became a major hit to the public in 1954. But did you know that red M&Mís were once removed?

In 1997, these candies became even more fun! Different personalities of the colors that are now loved by everyone were introduced. The Ďgreení M&M is a female while the rest are males who are in love with the green ones.
