Owned by Mars, M&M candies got their start thanks to the U.S. armed forces. For a while, the candies were sold exclusively to soldiers during WWII, but once the war was over, the company expanded. At their most basic, M&Ms are just milk chocolate. However, there are lots of special and limited flavors that pop up periodically. They’re often chosen by customers. Here are the most unique M&M flavors ever, from the United States and around the world:
A rare sight, but you can still find these in some places online.
