Josh Madison conducted a study on the color distribution of M&M candies. From the Consumer Affairs Office, he learned the expected percentages in each pack of candy (see below). He then conducted his own study; his results are posted on his website at: http://joshmadison.com/2007/12/02/mms-color-distribution-analysis or just find “Josh Madison M&Ms” online.
