How To Grow Your Own M&M's

By
Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

Can you really grow your own M&M candy? According to the Farmer's Market you can grow your own M&M candy in your garden. I never tried it or heard of it before but the source is directly from The Farmer's Almanac. This is not an April Fool joke. Click the link under M&M and see for yourself. 

 

If you try it will you share on ActiveRain? If you grow it will you eat it? If it does grow and you do have kids, it would be like having their own candy store in your own backyard! Do you think kids could become entrepreneurs and rich off M&M candy selling it to their friends and relatives? Would the kids grow their marketing and advertising skills based on growing and selling M&M's? Would you have to insure your M&M garden if sales soar? Would College students on campus plant M&M in raised flower beds to earn extra cash? If food supplies ran out, could you survive on home grown M&M's?

 

Did you ever stop to think how they made M&M candy or how they covered the chocolate inside with different colors? To be honest, I never stopped to think about it, nor would I ever think you could grow them in  your garden. Are they like the magic bean stalk? 

 

According to Wikipedia: M&M's are the flagship product of the Mars Wrigley Confectionery division of Mars, Incorporated. The candy originated in the United States in 1941, and M&M's have been sold in over 100 countries since 2003. 

 

According to Billionaire News: Net Worth for M&M's, Snickers, Skittles, Milky Way, Three Musketeers, Mars Bar, Twix, and other sweet treats if $94 Billion!

I would love to grow my own M&Ms - but only if I can assure myself that I will get the colors I want!  I did appreciate that I can control the acidity of the soil by planting a penny nearby - just like my hydrangeas!  Maybe I can grow pink M&Ms - I have never seen those in a pack of M&Ms!  Maybe I will become famous (for believing the Farmer's Almanac!)

Lise - This is the first I'm hearing about planting a penny by my hydrangeas. I better get out there and plant pennies today! If I could, I would like to grow at least 50 shades of purple M&Ms. We could both be famous - wouldn't that be cool!!!

That is quite funny and it is interesting what actually will grow without any intentions or attention in the garden.

Well, I think if you don't get rain, you would have to water anything on your own. Ha-Ha!

Good morning, Patricia... having been the Corporate Treasurer for M&M/Mars, I'm still not used to hearing Mars Wrigley as the name. Very familiar with M&M's as you might imagine... nothing like having a handful as they coming off the assembly line. (M&M's were manufactured right next door to our corporate offices in Hackettstown, NJ. You could smell the chocolate "brewing" from several miles away.)

 

By the way, regardless of what Billionaire News estimates, no one really knows what the Mars family is worth or what the total sales are. Those are truly state secrets. (I used to know, but have never revealed that information.)

 

And I do know how they make their colors for M&M's but have been sworn to secrecy.

WOW! When you are sworn to secrecy, you keep the secret for the rest of your life. Talk about loyalty!


What an interesting background. I can only imagine the constant whiff of chocolate living or working in that area. My aunt and uncle owned a candy store and the smell of sweet candy lingered long after I left her house/store. She lived in the back of the store.

Hello Patricia - why not?  ActiveRainLand seems to have more than a few similarities to CandyLand so the possibilities in real life are but another opportunity.

Michael - I like how you think!!!🥰

Oh Patricia I never thought of how they were made, but I do know that the red ones were always my favorite!

Larry & Sheila - I always chose the red ones too! I don't even remember the last time I ate M&Ms but I do remember loving to eat them!

Hi Patricia well I didn't grow my own M & M's but I had some that were branded for me - Anna Banana.  I used to give out little bags of M & M's (yellow and red) at every meeting etc.  Lots of fun.  I should do that again.  Thanks for the idea!!!

Patricia I can confirm that this is absolutely true.  I grew them last year, but I had a hard time growing the red one's.

We have no room in our yard to grow M & M plants, as there are too many money trees, small and large depending on the denomination of bill, and the clients bushes I pick from when they are ready and I have the time.

I spaced on this and kept wondering, what the heck? Then, I remembered April Fool's Day. Wouldn't it be fun to grow M and M's, though?  My grandkids would love it. Happy Easter. D
