Somebody help me with M&Ms!

So I got a pack of Peanut M&Ms today, and the bag says "New Orange Colour!" WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?? What's happening? Haven't there always been orange M&Ms? Did they replace a colour again? Is one missing? There are yellow, blue, green, red, ORANGE, and brown M&Ms in the pack. So were there just not any orange M&Ms before? Did I dream them?

I haven't really trusted M&Ms since the mid-90s when they conducted a big campaign to introduce a new colour. I was very excited to open my first pack of M&Ms featuring the new colour, but my world came crashing down when I opened the bag to discover that blue had REPLACED tan! I thought they were adding a new colour, not ceasing production of the poor tan M&Ms.

Apparently the consistency in M&Ms since then had lured me into a false sense of security, and today I don't know who to trust!

So is this orange thing all a ploy to hide the fact another colour has "vanished"? Where was orange before? Is this only with Peanut M&Ms, or are all varieties part of this insidious plot?



I am so frightened and confused.

Orange M&Ms have always been my favorites. They have been around for as long as I can remember.

But she said they said orange 'color'.
I've tried the raspberry flavored M&M's. Kinda weird.

Big Grin I picked up an all green bag the other day

ORANGE?

This is obviously a British thing. These will not go well in the Catholic neighborhoods in Belfast.

Raspberry and orange flavours?

I think these are only the UK Peanut M&Ms, while the UK plain M&Ms always had orange. Maybe orange Peanut M&Ms have always existed in the US, and I just never noticed that they weren't the same here.
