Today is National M&M Day, I love M&M's so much...
M&Ms are like a whole new sweetie of their own, there are different varieties and you always just going for either then newest type, or the original. my favourite flavour is peanut :-)
Here are today’s five thing to know about M&Ms:
From 1976 to 1985, there were no red M&Ms
Blue M&Ms were introduced in 1995.
M&Ms were taken along on the first space shuttle voyage in 1982.
There are 340 million M&M’s produced daily.
The “M&M” was modeled after a candy Forrest Mars, Sr. encountered while in Spain during the 1930s. 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.
I'm definitely celebrating, here's my packet of M&M's today :-)
