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.
