A few days ago, Crayola announced they’d be retiring one of the colors from their box of 24 crayons for the first time ever. They’ve killed off colors before, but never one from that core group.
And they just announced which one it is: DANDELION is dead and they say it won’t ever come back.
Now . . . you probably won’t miss it TOO MUCH, assuming it’s even possible for an adult to miss a crayon.
Dandelion only got promoted to the box of 24 crayons in 1990 . . . and the box will still have colors like yellow, orange, yellow-orange, apricot, and green-yellow if you need your “shade of yellow” fix.
They’re going to announce what color they’re replacing it with sometime this morning.
So yeah, nothing from your childhood is sacred anymore. Eventually it’s going to get sold out as part of a marketing stunt.
First Monopoly started slashing its classic game tokens like the thimble and the wheelbarrow. And now Crayola is all like, “Hey, WE can ruin your nostalgia too.”
Crayola just announced that they’re going to get rid of one of the colors from their box of 24 crayons. They’ve never eliminated one of those 24 core colors before. And because it’s 2017, they’ll be live streaming their decision on Friday morning.
So what are the 24 colors that are currently involved in this Russian roulette scenario?
They are: Red, yellow, blue, brown, orange, green, violet, black, carnation pink, yellow orange, blue green, red violet, red orange, yellow green, blue violet, white, violet red, dandelion, cerulean, apricot, scarlet, green yellow, indigo, and gray.
It’s hard to speculate which one will go, but it probably won’t be a super basic color like blue or yellow. It will probably be one that’s fairly redundant . . . like, do we need “yellow green” and “green yellow” or “red violet” and “violet red”?
