5) Originally made as a high-energy field snack for American soldiers, because "they melt in your mouth, not in your hand." M&M's were named after Forrest Mars and Bruce Murries the inventors.  Red M&M's were discontinued for 11 years from 1976 to 1985 after the FDA banned Red Dye No. 2, even though M&M's did not contain this dye. They have always used Red #'s 3 and 40! A student at the U of Tenn. started a society for the Restoration and Preservation of Red M&M's. In 1985 Focus groups decided the new proportions of 30% brown, 20% red, 20% yellow and 10% each of orange, green and tan for plain M&M's.

6) Moray Eel.
