What else would M be for, am I right? I mean, sure there are other candies that begin with the letter M, but come on. Nothing compares. Have you ever seen a child have and M&M for the first time? I remember when my son, who is now 4, had his first M&M about 1.5 years ago (don’t hate, I gave my kids chocolate pretty early) and ever since he’s.

This has to be the best commercial from this year’s Super Bowl, am I right?  First, how awesome is it that brown M&Ms are back.  I was always a little dismayed by the popularity of the blue ones (did you know that 25 % of all M&M packages are blue M&Ms?  That’s a bit overkill, if you ask me).  So, now that the browns are back, maybe the color ratio.
