In the 1990s, consumers were allowed to vote for a new color to join M&Ms, replacing tan. Blue, pink, and purple were up for grabs, and any current bag of regular M&Ms will tell you that blue won the battle.
In the early 2000s, aqua, pink, and purple went up for vote, and purple temporarily joined the team. Over a dozen colors have been available online for customizable bags, but it’s rare to change up the original color lineup.
Huffington Post repots that Facebook fans have chosen a new set of colors to be released in a small amount. Red, blue, green, purple, aqua, and pink effectively make all the voted-for colors join red in a limited run of chocolate and peanut.
While the shell won’t affect flavor, we all know that you have a certain favorite M&M to eat. I’m partial to tan and miss it accordingly.
