M&M’s, Hershey’s Among Most-Mentioned Candies in Music Lyrics

Guess singers love candy as much as the average person

Just in time for Halloween, licensed lyrics services provider LyricFind says M&M’s are the most-mentioned candy in music lyrics, edging out confectionery heavy-hitters such as Skittles, Hershey’s and more.

In searching its database of music lyrics, M&M’s were mentioned 122 times. Of course, that doesn’t mean the candy was specifically being referenced here; for instance, Migos’ eponymous tune is talking about M16 guns, while Travis Scott’s “Butterfly Effect,” which also prominently mentions the candy in its chorus, uses the name as slang for MDMA.

Did your favorite candy make the list? Check out LyricFind’s full ranking below, also featuring sweets like Jolly Rancher, Tootsie Roll and Twizzlers alongside songs like “Laffy Taffy” by D4L and Jay-Z’s “99 Problems.”
