Smarties candy has been made by the Smarties Candy Co. of New Jersey since 1949. They are a tablet-shaped candy suitable for vegans. The company, which started as Ce De Candy, is now and has always been family owned.

The M&M style of candy to which gnu refers has been made since 1937, and cannot be marketed in the US (which has pure food and drug laws). The company is owned by Nestle, which was the subject of a boycott by the Council of Canadians last year and which has had several other boycotts against it over the years.

Sure, M&Ms are owned by Mars, but Mars doesn't bottle water during droughts.
