There is a bit of paradise…
A staggering moment of human brilliance…
And that my friend, is embodied in the hard candy coating of a peanut M&M.
My blissful affair with this divine protégé of the American candy industry was interrupted recently by a bearer of cold, cruel accusations and facts.
I was accosted with things I never wanted to know about the faults of my sweet, such as the amount of saturated fat contained in one luscious handful.
So, as a dedicated advocate of my faithful friend, here are a few rarely shared peeks into his past….
He has a military background. His debut was rallying our troops in WWII in 1941.
His international voyages as an ambassador of goodwill to the nations began in 1980.
His first trip to the moon took place in 1982, although, in my opinion he has always been beyond this terrestrial ball.
In 1998 he was named the official candy of the millennium.
So the next time someone complains against him because of a little fat?
He’s a sweetie, a celebrity and a hero!
