NEW YORK - MARCH 12: M&M's candies in new, redesigned packaging are seen March 12, 2004 in New York City. Masterfoods USA, a unit of Mars Inc., is re-introducing the nation's number-one selling candy with a major advertising campaign, a bolder logo on packaging, and brighter-colored candy shells to induce sales in the flat U.S.chocolate industry.

Millions of people love M&Ms, but apparently, no one knew what the “M’s” stood for. Forrest Mars thought of the idea for the candy in the 1930s and partnered with Bruce Murrie, the son of Hershey’s Chocolate’s president William F.R. Murrie, to develop the snack, which was finally launched in 1941 with their initials as the name.

While everyone knows what they are, the people of Reddit were amazed to find this out. One said, “D*mn, learn something new every day,” while another said, “This is actually some info I haven’t seen before. Bravo.” M&Ms are sold in over 100 countries.
