Crayola Retires Brightest Color in the Box of 24!

posted by Jim E. -

Crayola is officially retiring its yellow Dandelion crayon. Before you are too crushed, the hue only debuted in 1990, so it isn’t one of the “classic” colors. The announcement was supposed to be made today, National Crayon Day, but someone spilled the beans on Twitter Thursday.

Crayola had advertised it would be retiring one color from its classic 24-pack today, but an e-mail sent Thursday by a Crayola marketing executive confirmed Dandelion will no longer be included in any of the company's products. The company plans to run a contest to allow fans to help name a replacement color which will be announced in May. See more on Crayola's Facebook page www.facebook.com/crayola
