What the M’s stand for in ‘M & M’s’

On January 23, 2010 we told of a newly wed couple who went to the Tetons for their honeymoon.

Their first names begin with M so they were often called, “the M & M kids” and they have a ‘thing’ for M&M candies.

Because of this, part of their table decorations at the wedding were, you guessed it, little collections and groupings of M&M candies scattered along the tables.

Well, I have thought about this (The M&Ms on the table) for quite some time and wondered what is the origin of the name ‘M&M’s’ ?

This tasty candy was obviously not named for this couple.

But there is an origin. This is not just a catchy made up name.

So, if you want to know how the M&M candies got their name,  HERE’S THE LINK
