Question: Which color replaced tan in a regular pack of M&Ms in 1995?

Correct Answer: Blue

When first introduced in 1941, the original colors for M&Ms were red, violet, green, yellow, and brown. Concerns of health risks with the red dye replaced the red in 1976 with orange. Ten years later, in response to global consumer pressure, red M&Ms returned (they were never a health hazard to begin with.) In 1995, the company ran a contest to allow the public to choose a replacement color for the tan candies, which they were retiring. The popular vote chose blue as the replacement color, making a pack of M&Ms consist of six colors: brown, red, orange, green, yellow, and blue.
