ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE -- President Barack Obama finally put his stamp on a token gift treasured by travelers of the presidential 747 -- boxes of M&M's.
Seven months after Obama took office, the small boxes bearing the signature of the 44th president made their debut this weekend in the midst of a four-day, four-state trip through the West.
The patriotic individual-sized boxes containing red, white and blue peanut M&M's were handed out on the plane Saturday.
On one side: the presidential seal and Obama's John Hancock scrawled in gold. On the other: a yellow M&M marching with an American flag.
Mars Inc. makes the bite-sized candy that has been a staple of Air Force One since at least the Reagan administration.
