MIlk Chocolate M&M’s

All the way back in 1941 the son of the founder of Mars and some guy from Hershey chocolate decided to rip off the much older candy “Smarties” which had been around during the Mexican/American war.

They did get a patent to make the idea theft legal and in that year of 1941 Forrest Mars and William F. R. Murrie made the first milk chocolate M&M. They’ve been fattening up Americans ever since.
