Thank god for the yellow-themed morning tea at work… how else would I have justified arranging the contents of 5 bags of M&Ms according to colour?
Some interesting findings:
- A new grey colour exists. At first I thought it was some sort of poor neglected albino M&M, but after having re-read the packet, it turns out that the grey replaces the brown in bags that are part of M&M Australia’s Time Machine Competition. Details here.
- There are different shades of red M&Ms, depending on the type (peanut, crispy, milk chocolate). The rest of the colours are homogenous.
- Blue is the most dominant colour in the Milk Chocolate bags. However, there were only 5 blue ones in the Peanut bag.
- Yellow is the least dominant colour overall. Being a lover of yellow, I found this preposterous.
- There are an equal amount of red and blue M&Ms overall (138 pieces each)
- The Crispy M&Ms are rounder than the Peanut ones. (Thank you Tess for pointing that out!)
