    Theory idea: Does warm milk actually help you sleep? If not, what food or foods can help you get sleep at night?

  2. ShortHax says:

    Can’t wait for why the Cheetos seasoning sticks to your fingers. And that Chester isn’t dangerously cheesy after all

  3. Blueberry Wolf says:

    Why do I think MatPat pressing down on solid and melted m&m’s is hella satisfying? Am I the only one?

  4. Lonely Sandwich says:

    Bruh, the most iconic candy slogan is this.

    “Taste the rainbow! (Motherfu-)”

  5. Jackbacon123 says:

    Another thing: as the sweat on your hand dissolves the sugar exterior, it should increase its conductivity, making it melt faster

  6. spookycookie says:

    this is literally first time i’ve heard m&m’s slogan, compared to all the other brands, wouldn’t say it’s that iconic 🙈

    • Minkey Mouce says:

      That’s because you didn’t grow up with it. Multiple generations have passed, I’m sure it was extremely popular around the WWII era where they were exclusively shipped to soldiers

    • MissLilyputt says:

      @Minkey Mouce They’ve used the slogan at least until the 90’s. You can find commercials for M&M’s from the 90’s that use it

      But undoubtedly if you’re under 20 then there’s much less of a chance that you would’ve seen or heard it but it’s very iconic because it’s known by most people.
      Also nowadays people can skip most ads so you wouldn’t really see ads at all.

      Same and I’m in my mid 20’s and still remember classic slogans like Kit-Kat’s “Give me a break of that Kit-Kat bar” so that M&Ms slogan must have been retired for a long time.

    • Danese says:

      @Kyogre’s Hideout I’m 20 and I remember hearing the slogan.

    • Vaibhav Sapkota says:

      Hungry for Apples
      Got Milk

  7. 「Joseph Joestar」 says:

    I absolutely adore the fact that the goal of food theory, game theory, etc is to ruin childhoods in the most unnecessary yet awesome scientific way possible. lol

  8. Jellyjack Cheese says:

    “Melts in your mouth, not *ON* your hand”

    The chocolate certainly melts in your hand but it doesn’t get ON them

  9. AGuyNamedSmith says:

    “They say an m&m shell is just under 1mm thick”
    “Who’s they?”

  10. Dam says:

    MatPat crushing the M&Ms at the end was so satisfying
    that slogan was quite epic & long lol
