Watch how M&M’s are Made

M&MS Candy Video

Ever wonder how M&M’s are made? They are one of the most popular candies ever made and just about everyone you know has had some kind of M&M’s at one point in their life. Check out this video on how the Mars candy company makes M&M’s and some interesting facts about the tiny mouth watering chocolate candies.


Here are some interesting facts about M&M’s that you may not know:

  • M&M’s stands for “Mars and Murrie” the founders whose full names are Frank Mars and Bruce Murrie.
  • The story of M&M’s started around 1941 around WW2 in a New Jersey factory and were only sold to the military during these years and were available for public consumption in 1945.
  • Peanut M&M’s were originally introduced in 1954 and were tan in color.
  • Red M&M’s are the most popular choice of these candy chocolate lovers to this day.
  • The Google company started to provide unlimited amounts of M&M’s for their employees in 2012. They consumed large amounts of them and the supervisors became worried about the amount of them they were eating and eventually had to add other healthier sweets alternatives such as figs, fruits and nuts.
  • There are approximately 60 calories in one fun size M&M’s candy.

It is arguable that M&M’s are the most popular chocolates candies that the population of the world has ever known and are undoubtedly the most mass produced at around a whopping 70,000 pieces per second.

M&M’s are one of the top selling candies of Sweet Services and we offer a large variety to choose from including: Easter M&M bunny mixM&M Christmas mixM&M Peanut Fun Size and other M&M’s products.
