Theorists, I'm guessing most of you have seen at least one M&M commercial in your life. From the classic Santa is real one that's been circulating for YEARS or more modern versions, one thing is clear. Those M&Ms are being EATEN! I'm not just talking about being eaten by the humans in the commercials, the M&Ms are eating each other! Yet, I'm not sure that means they are committing cannibalism... Why? Watch to find out!

  • Maybe they just ate too many M&M's and became one themselves, and still can't stop eating M&M's :D "You are what you eat!"

  • But yellow ate a peanut m&m. Red m&m would have only eating his ‘clothing’ (shell and chocolate are considered the clothing) but yellow (part of body made of peanuts) ate m&m’s with peanuts in them.

  • Food Theory, I found a loophole in the commercial of the 3 m&ms and the guy. Earlier in the episode u said there weren’t cannibals because they weren’t eating that respected family in which they were gone but, in the commercial I’m referencing they were at first because yellow was eating peanut m&ms the other 2 as well. I believe this to be considered a cannibalistic act.

  • M&M's are a great invention: imagine a candy you can eat at any volume and leave the rest, confident it won't get the chocolate shortcomings of changing color or melting. Whether you know it or not, manufacturers 'harden' their chocolate for the environment. In other words, you can have M&M's, a pretty steady product, or chocolate that's been changed for the environment, such as the difference between Minnesota in winter and Georgia in high summer. They change the ratio of ingredients to do this...

  • Ok matpat, can we talk about how they’ve been promoting cannibalism towards children for years? I’ve seen SO many commercials were sentient food characters start eating one another! They make it seem TOTALLY fine but only for children? It’s quiet odd, and vary bad.
