Color distribution for various types of M&Ms

Two Different M&M Factories

M&M’S are produced at two different factories. Each factory has its own claimed distribution:

 

Hackettstown, NJ

Brown: 12.5%, Red: 12.5%, Yellow: 12.5%, Green: 12.5%, Orange: 25%, Blue: 25%

 

Cleveland, OH

Brown: 12.4%, Red: 13.1%, Yellow: 13.5%, Green: 19.8%, Orange: 20.5%, Blue: 20.7%

 

To find out which factory your package of M&Ms came from, check the serial code: a code that includes “HKP” was produced at the Hackettstown factory; a code that includes “CLV” was produced at the Cleveland factory.
