What is it about the green ones? I’ll tell you.
Put yourself back about 15 years. You were probably watching Saturday morning cartoons. I don’t care what your network was (I was a CBS kid-that channel didn’t move in my house from 8am until noon), you were there. And there was an M&Ms commercial on about that time that had two boys playing baseball. One of them, the star of the team, had discovered a coorelation between the M&Ms he ate and the way he would hit, as if there were steroids in the candy coating that keeps them from melting in our hands.
“First base with the brown ones; double with the yellow; orange, triple. And with the green ones, I hit the ball down-town.”
We have been programmed to think that green M&M’s will get us homers. And if you were watching cartoons as a child on Saturday mornings, you were probably also aware of the baseball analogy for making out and sex. What did a home run get you? That’s right. Green M&Ms get you laid.
