9. M&M flavor "BOO-terscotch" was recently released for the fall season, with some Harry Potter fans nicknaming it the "Butterbeer M&Ms".

1.  The idea for caramel M&M's came when one exec was laying out rat poison in his shed.
2.  Barely disguised M&M spokes cartoons were used in the porn-epic Melts in Her Mouth but Not in Her Hand, with Courtney Love voicing the green M&M, until lawyers shut down distribution.
3.  The peanuts in peanut M&Ms are actually very old cashews.
4.  The idea for the candy shell came when one of the VPs was contemplating an Easter egg and its thin, almost translucent shell and someone walked up to him and said, "Hey stupid!  Why don't you make something chocolate with a candy coating?"
5.  The red M&M was discontinued for ten years until a study could be made on whether or not consumers minded getting stomach cancer.
6.  Only one-quarter of M&M candies have an 'm' stamped on them.  the other seventy-five percent are '3's, 'w's and 'e's...
7.  Pretzel M&Ms were the result of the "Randomly Generate an M&Ms Type" contest.  Second place?  Cayenne and Sage M&Ms.
8.  The company produced the penultimate possible permutation, M&Ms inside a peanut butter cup, and now only has the option manufacturing M&Ms with brussel sprouts or poison.  The brussel sprout idea was rejected and the poison M&Ms were rebranded as "Caramel M&Ms".

I remember a friend of mine at church being all uptight about the introduction of the anthropomorphic Green M&M, bringing up the old urban legend about how the green dye was originally an aphrodisiac and that the company was engaging in blatant sexual pandering.  She calmed down when I pointed out that it was just a walking piece of candy and that many people would not automatically think of having sex with it the moment they saw it.

Back in the 70's/80's they had a beautiful, much more organic color palette that fit the chocolate flavor.  Now with the red and blue colors, they're very gaudy.

I'd like to go on ebay and see how much I can get for my bag of M&Ms. There is was a screw up in the manufacturing process. They were printed with Ws by mistake;

As the voice of reason, I say,  you are surely doing the lord's work. But the green ones do make you horny.

A guy I knew from high school got a job at the M & Ms factory in Quality Assurance.  He was fired because he kept throwing away all the Ws.

The caramel ones are one of many in the new trend of cutting out the chocolate. See chocolate is getting more demand globally and climate change is slowing production, the prices will eventually be to the point of a $3 regular Hershey bar, and they know they can't charge that so they push cheaper alternatives.

18. M&Ms just may become a thing of the past in our favorite desserts and fast food products.

That's a bold assertion Cotton...let's see if the article explains it.

CSB:
When I went back to college to finish my Journalism degree, I often bought cheap bags of candy at the Big Lots across the street.

Because I am a generous soul, and know what it is like to be a starving college student, I would fill up jar with candy and wrote "Help Yourself!" on it and left it on the main table.

Because I have a weird sense of humor, after everybody got used to this I filled it with a mixture of M&Ms, Skittles, Reeses Pieces...
