In the 1940’s, Forrest E. Mars, Sr. introduced M&M’S Plain Chocolate Candies in Newark, New Jersey. Less that 10 years later, M&M’s became so popular they were now being made with an “m” stamped on each piece of chocolate to distinguish themselves from other candies on the market! In the 1980’s, M&M’s became the first candy in space when they were chosen by astronauts to be included in their food supply. M&M’s Peanut Butter Chocolate candies were then introduced as the brand expanded to different countries all over the globe as M&M’s was the Official Snack Food Sponsor of the 1984 Olympic Games. By the 90’s, M&M’s Mini’s were launched into production and the rest is history! The chocolate candy soon become a global icon with M&M’s clever television commercials and candy customization. This classic chocolate candy will never go out of style. Pick up a FREE bag of an 8-10.7oz sharing size bag of M&M’s with a $20+ purchase!
