The 2 M’s in M&Ms stand for ‘Mars’ and ‘Murrie’ the creators of the candy

  3. M&Ms were taken along on the first space shuttle voyage in 1982.
  4. There are 340 million M&M’s produced daily.

During the Spanish civil war there, he observed soldiers eating chocolate pellets with a hard shell of tempered chocolate. This prevented the candies from melting, which was essential when included in soldiers rations as they were.
