- Serving size1 ounce (28 g)
M&M's Chocolate candy is an American icon and are made by the Mars Company.
They have been around since 1941 and have since grown to world-wide popularity.
They come in many varieties, and the caffeine content will vary based on the amount of chocolate used and the use of milk of dark chocolate.
The traditional M&M's are just candy coated milk chocolate. The standard amount of caffeine in milk chocolate is 20 mg / 100 g (USDA). We estimate the caffeine content in 1 ounce (28 g) of M&M's is around 5 mg.
This is standard for the amount of milk chocolate in the product minus the candy coating.
Dark Chocolate M&Ms
We estimate he dark chocolate version of M&M's may have double the caffeine at around 10 mg per ounce (28 g).
Coffee Nut M&M's
These are not chocolate covered coffee beans but coffee flavored chocolate surrounding a peanut. There does not appear to be actual coffee in the ingredients, so caffeine amounts will be the same.
