UPDATE: Friday, March 31, 4:00 am
Crayola just announced which one of their core colors they're retiring. They're taking the DANDELION crayon out of their box of 24 and killing it off for good.
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.
Crayola is making a big change.
The manufacturer says for the first time in it's 100-year history it will retire a color from it's 24-count crayon box. The color hasn't been revealed yet, and the company says it will live stream the decision on Friday, March 31st, which is National Crayon Day.
The current colors that make up a Crayola box 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. Crayola has been encouraging individuals to share images of the color they can't live without on social media during the build up to the big reveal, accompanied by the hashtag #WhosLeaving
