On Thursday, the staple crayon company, Crayola, announced a new shade of blue named “bluetiful” to join the current 24-count Crayola box. According to Fox News, the name “bluetiful” beat other potential names in a nationwide competition created by Crayola including “blue moon bliss, “dreams come true,” “reach for the stars,” and “star spangled blue.” “Bluetiful” is replacing the color “dandelion” in the Crayola 24-pack, making it the first time a color was removed and replaced since the original box was released.
