You’ve probably eaten M&M’s a million times, but have you ever wondered what the M’s actually stand for?
Each one stands for one of the two creators of the candy, Forrest Mars and Bruce Murrie. They were the two businessmen who originally created the candy-coated chocolates. The two actually butted heads a lot back in the 1940s. It was then that Mars leveraged Murrie out of his 20 percent share in the company. Then years later M&Ms became the best-selling candy in the country paying Murrie just $1 million for a share of business. Obviously the company went on to eventually be worth billions.
