Enjoy the one and only "Original" Red M&M's ®, manufactured exclusively by Masterfoods USA / M&M Mars, as well as a fun trivia fact.

Did you know that Red M&M's ® were not available for 11 years from 1976 to 1985 after the FDA banned Red Dye No. 2, even though Red M&M's ® did not contain this dye?! The manufacturer had always used Red #'s 3 and 40.

Due to a wave of consumer protests, a student and editor of University of Tennessee newspaper named Paul Hethmon started a society for the Restoration and Preservation of Red M&M's.®

So popular were his lobbying efforts that Red M&M's ® were reintroduced. Focus groups were held to decide the correct proportions for the gradual reintroduction of the banned color during the Christmas season of 1985.

By the way, in case you were wondering, there are approximately 500 Red M&M's ® per pound. Although we are not an authorized distributor, all M&M's® are sold in factory-sealed bags to ensure freshness and authenticity!
