M&M’s originated in the U.S. in 1941. The original colors for M&M’s were; red, yellow, brown, green and violet. Their original packaging was a cardboard tube. In 1950 they started to imprint a black “M” on the candy. The white “M” replaced the black in 1954. Peanut M&M’s were introduced in 1954 and their original color was tan. 1960 they added; red, green, yellow and orange for the peanut M&M. Last but not least, in 1986 M&M’s launched the “Holiday” candies for Christmas and Easter.
