Even though i got #5 correct I think it's important to not that the red M&M's were discontinued temporarily for 11 years, they haven't been discontinued since 1985. I found that answer misleading suggesting that they still are.

yes that is smart of van halen, but isn't that what silly demands on a rider are generally used for anyway? [to make sure every last detail has been covered?] it's not like they invented the concept. and i gotta get my hands on some of these coconut m&ms!!! yum!

Your quiz is actually wrong. Blue M&Ms are not part of a treatment for spinal cord injuries. The blue dye is ... no M&Ms or any other candy were used in the experiments.

50% - Yeah, the Van Halen trick was very smart on their part! Nice!

I agree with skigurl about the van halen fact. Very smart indeed.

Number 2 is very deceptive. The blue dye in large quantities might help. M&Ms have nothing to do with it.

Isn't chocolate in general an aphrodisiac? So wouldn't that make all M&M's..including the green ones..one?
