Monday/ farewell to dandelion

Here are the crayons from Crayola’s 24-crayon set. Dandelion is the dark yellow third from the bottom. Crayola will reportedly replace the dandelion color with a color from the blue or green family.

Crayola announced recently that they are retiring the dandelion crayon color.  I have fond childhood memories* of Crayola crayons, but I did not have dandelion – it was introduced only in 1990.  Even so, I bought a 24-pack with the dandelion crayon color in (cost $4), to put on my desk here at home, to see what the fuss is about, and to have a dandelion crayon after all.

*I was fascinated by the colors called periwinkle and mahogany, and when the metallic silver and gold crayon colors came out).
