Milk Chocolate MMs
Milk Chocolate MMs is one of the most loved chocolate brands in the world. Sold in over 100 countries globally, more than 400 million M&M’s are produced every day in the USA. Where it currently stands as their best selling candy.
Invented by Forrest Mars, Sr, the son of Frank C. Mars, who founded the Mars Company, the inspiration for Milk Chocolate M&Ms is believed to have come from the methodology which enabled soldiers to carry chocolate in their packs without it melting.
Officially launched after much testing in 1941, the first M&Ms were made using Hershey Milk Chocolate. Originally they came in five different colours – red, yellow, brown, green and violet. These have now changed to yellow, orange, blue, green and brown.
They were also blank. The famous letter ‘M’ did not appear on the candy until 1950 and when it did it was in black.
It wasn’t changed to the white it is today until 1954. Legend has it that Forrest Mars, Sr even randomly bought packs of the chocolate to see if the ‘M’ was perfectly aligned in the centre. If they weren’t he would recall them.
For many years Milk Chocolate M&Ms has famously been advertised under the strapline ‘Melts in your mouth, not in your hand’.
