    In 1988, President Reagan started the tradition of giving out presidential M&M's on Air Force One. Previously, presidential packs of cigarettes were given out as souvenirs. Every president since has continued the tradition, giving out presidential M&M's with their signature on the box.

    2. These absolutely gigantic Skittles (which presently are only sold in the UK).
