colorful psychosis

i was called away from my desk for a moment, and when i came back in, i was so pleased by this on my desk. i know this color combo is pretty hot right now, but i don't think i've really seen it in action. i was startled, actually, at how pretty it was.



of course, then i started wondering... does anyone else eat their candy by color?!?! please tell me i'm not the only one! i guess i didn't really notice until i saw the evidence on my desk.

unfortunately I am not picky about the color of the candy I am eating...
I just eat it all-

It is a cute color combo though!!

BEEEEautiful, Lelly. I'm like Patsy: a handful is a handful and it all goes in at once!

Hannah said...

What a pleasing sight! When given the option, I usually select colorful combos as well and Linc is often left with a bowl full of one or two colored candies...

I do eat my candy by color. But, I choose to save my favorite flavor for last, like with skittles. And I usually eat them two by two... is that vierd?

I think I might be color-blind when it comes to candy. They all look the same color to me.

this reminds me of the first few years with my daughter, I only got to eat the brown ones because "I don't eat chocolate" was her statement for a long time. I didn't try to explain that they were all chocolate because I was scared I might not get any.

I don't eat my candy by color, but I probably would if I had any self-control. I love green & brown, and I love m&ms. What a pleasing photo!

Amy said...

oh yeah. I do. I confess. I didn't know other people did too!

I will have to post tomorrow about my jelly belly love, color is the main factor. I had thought about blogging this last week but ditched it b/c I though people would find me a bit too strange!!!

I am gonna go for it. Tuesday. ;)

love this photo lelly - such a fun little peek into your personality!

do you know that i have a SIL who can tell you what color m&m she is eating with her eyes closed! true because i've seen her do it!

seriously, she has some majorly developed taste buds. me? i think i just eat them by the handful.

Lovely color combo...the fact that they are M&Ms might make me appreciate the color combo even more...

...the photo is delightful!

...I wish I had some M&Ms in my home! :)

With M&M's I tend to also. But ya know green has been known for something!!!! I gave my husband a whole jar full of green once!

Jill said...

M&Ms are always pretty, but it's especially nice when they end up in color patterns like this.

Sometimes I just shovel them in my mouth and other times I eat them by color.

Janiece said...

yes, I am afraid that if I am "picking", I eat by colors, most of the time I am "Cramming" I don't even know there are colors!
Are black and green the new m&m halloween colors??!! I LOVE IT!!

Natasha said...

If the candy is flavored (jelly beans, etc.) then I sort them by color and save reds for last.
I like the color combo!!

Alisha said...

I always eat red skittles first, and red starbursts, and chocolate (brown) M & M's. After that it's anyone's guess.

Rhonda said...

This cracks me up... I NEVER thought about eating by color. I just shove it in my mouth so fast, I never have time to separate and be so discerning.

Thanks for the giggles.
