M&M’s Survival of the Fittest

Continuing my educational bent into the weekend, I think I will revist the hypothesis that brown and red M&M’s have superior strength.

Whenever I get a package of plain M&Ms, I make it my duty to
continue the strength and robustness of the candy as a
species.  To this end, I hold M&M duels.

I need to run some errands, so I will randomly select four pounds of M&M Plain Candy and begin my arduous research while Tiger and the boys sweat their butts of playing in Hell, Oklahoma.

Of course I will follow the strict and generally accepted principle of M&M testing.

Taking two candies between my thumb and forefinger, I apply
pressure, squeezing them together until one of them cracks and
splinters.  That is the “loser,” and I eat the inferior one
immediately.  The winner gets to go another round.

From time to time one finds a mutation. A candy that is misshapen or deformed. Usually this indicates weakness, but on rare occasions this is not true, indicating that the candy is adapting to it’s environment and may in fact add strength to the candy over the long haul.

When I reach the end of the study and have determined the strongest and fittest candy, I shall put aside in hopes that one day M&M will need a breeder.

Wish me luck.

  1. This post is just another reason why we MUST hang out sometime. I am laughing so hard there are tears running down my face. I kid you not. That is effing awesome.
