NYPOST.COM M&M’s are getting a sweet makeover in 2022. The chocolate candies that melt in your mouth and not in your hand are giving fans a new way to love their favorite treat. Mars, Inc. announced that they will be redesigning their M&M’s mascots — the array of rainbow-colored talking chocolate balls. The six “refreshed” characters are most noticeably sporting new shoes.
