Fact of the Day: Mars and Murrie

M&Ms were named after candy makers Forrest Mars and Bruce Murrie. Forrest Mars got the idea during the Spanish Civil War when he saw soldiers eating chocolate pellets with a hard shell, which kept it from melting. He used that inspiration to make the famous candy, and some of the first M&Ms were sent to soldiers during World War II.
