Air Force One, which usually is stocked with specially marked boxes of M&M’s candies, was missing the Mars Inc. treats on Wednesday.

According to the White House press pool report, “And on this Halloween, your pooler notes with some degree of sadness that Air Force One is out of the traditional on-board M&Ms.”

While conspiracy theories might abound about the absence of the M&M’s, the presidential supply likely wasn’t shipped off to the White House for trick-or-treaters — Halloween festivities at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. were canceled due to Hurricane Sandy.
