M&Ms Milk Chocolate
M&Ms Milk Chocolate made by Mars first came about during the Spanish Civil War. Forrest Mars Sr. came across soldiers in England eating small chocolate beads encased in a hard sugar shell. They were part of their rations. Summer was a time when sales of chocolate typically went down, due to heat melting the chocolate. Forrest was keen on developing a product that would be able to resist melting in high temperatures. Upon returning to the United States, he approached Bruce Murrie, the son of Hershey executive William Murrie. He sought a partnership that would ensure a steady supply of sugar and cocoa to produce his new candy. In return, Murrie was given a 20 percent stake in the M&Ms product, which was named to represent ‘Mars’ and ‘Murrie.’
Perfect for parties, M&Ms are that perfect snack that everyone loves, knowing the chocolate will melt in your mouth and not in your hand.
