There was some earlier discussion about M&M color proportions. Here are
the numbers as reported in a brochure sent to me my Mars, Inc. since the
recent color change (i.e. introduction of blue):

Plain M&Ms: Brown 30%, Yellow 20%, Red 20%, Orange 10%, Green 10%, Blue

Peanut M&Ms: 20% each of Brown, Yellow, Red, Blue; and 10% Green, Orange

M&M Peanut Butter & M&M Almond: 20% each of Brown, Red, Yellow, Green,

Also, re Reese's Pieces:

Combining samples my students took last year -

Orange 1127 (59%)
Brown 440 (23%)
Yellow 329 (32%)

(Perhaps the proportions are 50/25/25?)
