And now it’s time for Terrific Trivia Tuesday.  Teachers wait until the end of the question and then dial 1420 to answer:

Question:  What color of M&M was in the candy packets when first sold in 1941 but is not any more?

Answer: Purple.

Fun Facts: The original colors were red, yellow, green, brown, and PURPLE which were sold in a cardboard tube.  In 1949 they pulled purple and changed it to TAN! Yuck! In 1995 the public voted to bring back purple OR introduce a blue m&m.  Blue won the vote with 54% of the vote.

Happy Tuesday Guys!
