This page relates to M & M’s, a Mars brand. Last updated March 2022.
The classic M and M’s are not halal nor are they suitable for vegetarians. Some products are haram because they contain E120 Cochineal. You can read more on Cochineal here.
We spoke to M and M who failed to clarify and confirm if whether some products (those with know red colouring) are halal. Therefore, we suggest avoid all products just in case there is animal product other than cochineal.
Some products contains vanilla extract, however Mars confirm the Vanilla does not contain any alcohol.
Hi, M&M’s in the UK aren’t suitable for halal or vegetarian diets. We use additives that come from animal products when we’re making M&M’s and traces of these can be found in the sweets. They aren’t listed in the ingredients because they’re only present in such small amounts.
Every effort has been made to assess each M&M’s product.
Recipes may change so always check the ingredients on the pack.
