M&M's are candy-coated chocolates whose advertising promotes them as a treat that "melts in your mouth, not in your hand." They come in a variety of types, such as plain milk chocolate, peanut, almond, dark chocolate, dark chocolate peanut and peanut butter. To promote the candies, M&M's created five characters, named after the colours red, yellow, green, blue and orange. You can create our own customised M&M's character online for free at the M&M's website.
