Analyzing M&M® candies is a delicious way to make intro statistics courses fun. In that spirit and since it's still Friday here at SAS world headquarters, I bring you @Rick_SAS's recent blog post, The distribution of colors for plain M&M candies. He ran the numbers on M&M's from some of our breakrooms, which get a fresh supply on Wednesdays. The results surprised him. Try the program in University Edition.
Ever done any M&M's analyses we should know about? Post about it below in the comments.

Just FYI, almost all of my 800+ blog posts can run in SAS UE. Furthermore, I suspect every program in my book Simulating Data with SAS can be run in SAS UE. I only write about Base SAS, SAS/STAT, and SAS/IML.

Anyone interested in similar analysis of NCFCD (Non-branded Chocolate Filled Candy Disks)? See of other makers are following in the Mars Company footsteps.

I would be tempted to do the NCFCD analysis but I'm afraid my blood-sugar would not like having such around as I'm too weak-willed to have them but not eat.
