Transcript of M&M Candy(:

All about the process of making this delicious candy M&M Candy Forrest Mars invented the recipe for M&Ms chocolate during the Spanish Civil War. He saw soldiers eating pieces of chocolate covered with a hard sugary coating. (The coating preventing the candy from melting in the hot sun.) Mars received a patent for his manufacturing process on March 3, 1941. M&Ms were first served in 1941 in cardboard tubes. In 1945 the slogan "The milk chocolate melts in your mouth, not in your hand" was created. Background Liquid chocolate comes from a blend of whole milk, cocoa butter, sugar, and chocolate liquor. The chocolate liquor is a thick syrup that is made from the grinding of cocoa beans. Roasted cocoa nibs (nibs are the meat of the bean) undergo the process of broyage, in which they are crushed by a grinder made of revolving granite blocks. Chocolate liquor is actually composed of small particles of roasted nibs suspended in oil. The candy shell is made from a blend of sugar and corn syrup.
Raw Materials Used: The manufacturing process of the M&Ms are broken into four different groups:
1. Molding - Liquid chocolate is poured into tiny molds to form the shape of the chocolate candy. After the mold is filled it is shaken and tumbled to perfect the shape, and then it is set out to harden.
2. Coating - When the chocolate has hardened they are carried via conveyor belt to the coating area. Here, the chocolate undergoes a process known as panning (where it is sprayed with the coating at timed intervals so the coating may dry.)
3. Printing - A special conveyor belt carries the pieces to this machine. Each piece rests in its own indentation. The piece runs under rubber etch rollers that gently touch each candy to print the "m." This machine is specially designed to imprint the "m" without cracking the thin candy shell.
4. Packaging - A special machine weighs the M&Ms and distributes them into packages. Manufacturing Process Quality Control After the candy is combined only mishapen candy are discarded. It is nearly impossible to ensure a perfect "m" on every M&M. Future As for the future of this product, I predict that the company will continue their goals of branching out. Their goal is to have a chocolate that everybody can enjoy - for example: Peanut M&M, Mint Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Mini M&MS, etc
