Tuesday/ ‘blue’ is back

‘Blue is back’ says the box of Smarties chocolate bean candies (Nestlé’s version of M&Ms that I bought in South Africa).  Yes, but which ones are blue? I see periwinkle and lavender but no blue.  Must be the ‘no artificial colours’ that mutes the colors. Aww.  I guess Nestlé wants to avoid the situation that Mars candy company had some time ago.  Red M&Ms were discontinued from 1976 to 1985 after the FDA banned Red Dye No. 2 — even though M&M’s did not contain this dye.
