I knew the blue ones were better!

Because I write my news stories far in advance, this guy is really late breaking, and it got a lot of press when it first came out. But I’m writing about it anyway because…

Blue M&Ms have always been my favorite. If I have a bag of M&Ms all to myself, I pick them out and save them for last. If I’m sharing with others, I pick them out and eat them first before others can nab them. My friends often tease me about, as they all taste the same.

Well, ha! It turns out that the dye used in blue M&Ms has been found to reduce spine injuries in rats, with the rather adorable side-effect of turning rats blue. I feel so vindicated – I always knew the blue ones were better!
