Need an excuse to satisfy your sweet tooth before Halloween? Well, you can since Sunday is National M&M’s Day.

Production of the candy began in 1941 after reports suggest the creator got his inspiration from seeing soldiers eat chocolate with a hard shell during the Spanish Civil War.

Since then, the candies have gained popularity all over the world, even space.

They’re reportedly the most eaten candy by astronauts.
