Old fashioned business practices

The savvy Mars struck a deal with Hershey via Murrie, whereby Murrie would provide some capital, and Hershey would provide chocolate, sugar and technology. The partners names the product for the first initials of their last names: M&Ms.
and all you knew
is that they don't melt in your hands:)

You're so right! That's all I did know, except where would we be without 'em? I always tuck a few of those little packages from holidy treats away for future chocolate attacks!
I love 'Storms in Affrica'!

Interesting. Our son and his wife refer to themselves as "M&M" for MiHwa and Mark.Needless to say, every Christmas, Santa leaves a bag of these treats under the tree.

Wonder when they came up with the idea that they even gave a thought to potty training? I have heard several people use them as a reward to children.
I did not use them in either of the above ways. Peace
