M&M Meaning

Updated March 1, 2017 | Infoplease Staff

The Question:

What does M&M stand for?

The Answer:

M&Ms brand candy-coated chocolate candies were first sold in 1941. They were named for Forrest Mars, who developed them, and his business partner of the time, Bruce Murrie. Mars later bought Murrie out, gaining complete control over the candy, which may explain why we couldn't find any mention of the latter at the official M&Ms website.
