The original treats are said to have been invented by Kellogg Corporation co-workers Mildred Day and Malitta Jensen in 1939, possibly inspired by an earlier recipe that used puffed wheat and molasses. When the Camp Fire Girls organization contacted Kellogg for ideas for fundraiser, the company directed their attention to Day’s easy cookie recipe made from the popular rice cereal.
In 1996, M & M Minis were introduced to the market. Today they add fun and color to the classic Treat recipe.
