American Red Cross M&M's Cellophane Bag

Description
The hard candy coated shell of M&M’s kept them from melting, which made them perfect for soldiers’ rations during World War II. The American Red Cross would regularly send care parcels to prisoners of war during World War II, and the care packages included M&M’s contained in a clear cellophane bag.
