What Your Favorite Color of M&M Says About You

We all have our favorite color of M&M. The one that you reach for first when there is a big bowl of candy staring at you. I have even heard about people who will only eat certain colors and then throw away the rest. While I think that's a bit extreme, I admit that I like to segregate and prioritize my M&M-eating experience. Yellow is always last, in case you were wondering.

Each color has its own special subconscious meaning. I attended a special M&M color meaning workshop while working towards my graduate degree in psychology, so rest assured that you are dealing with a trained professional here. What does your favorite say about you? Read on to find out. And if your answer is that you don't have a favorite and you just eat them indiscriminately, well then, that's all I need to know about you.

Green: I'll start with green, because thanks to the M&M ad campaign, we're all aware that a preference for green means that you're a sexual deviant. You tend to overemphasize the importance of sex in your life and often feel rejected when your date feigns a headache after you suggestively ask if he or she is into pony play. The answer is always no. Especially on the first date.

Red: If your fingers tend to gravitate toward the bright red candies in the bowl, this implies that you're confident, bold, and passionate. Red is probably the most popular M&M color choice, but you don't care. If you want red, you'll take red, consequences be damned. Let the next person who comes by seeking candy settle for their second favorite. You were there first, and you deserve the best.

Blue: People who prefer blue M&Ms are trendsetters. You like being on the cutting edge of things. Many of the traditionalists did not feel the need to add blue to the preexisting M&M color choices, but you were all for it, because you live for excitement and the unknown possibilities life has to offer. Charlie Sheen loves blue M&Ms.

Orange: You don't play by any rules, do you? Orange enthusiasts are wild, carefree, and march to the beat of their own drum. You won't often meet someone who prefers orange, but when you do, you better prepare yourself, because it's going to be a fun night.

Yellow: What is wrong with you? Yellow M&Ms are not only unnatural, but unattractive. Yellow is the least popular M&M color. People who prefer yellow M&Ms tend to go against the grain and are sometimes diagnosed with Antisocial Personality Disorders, which is directly linked with psychopathy. It's a fact. Ask Dr. Phil.

Brown: The traditionalist. Chocolate is naturally brown, and therefore you reason that the brown M&Ms provide the most naturally occurring color choice. You like things to be as they should. A place for everything and everything in its place, is your motto. You might have a tendency to towards a little obsessive-compulsiveness, but that's okay. Not everyone has to be cool.

OMG! This thing is right! First thing is first, I have to sort each bag and make a pie chart of the color break down...but after that, I am all green baby! I just can't get enough of those green M&M's. They tell you that they all taste the same, but that's total BS.

I love the Blue ones but now I'm kind of freaked out because they are Charlie Sheen's favorite M&Ms too. Haha.

Getting rid of Tan also killed poor Billy. They used to have some M&M characters with names and there was Light Brown Billy and Dark Brown Dan. Poor Billy got the axe.

I prefer pork belly M&M"s. I recently "discovered" them, just as people are suddenly "discovering" offal, which peasants have eaten for hundreds of years.

Geri, what can you tell me about myself considering my immeasurable hatred for all things hipster and foodie? I have an idea myself, but would love to here your take...

Blue is my favorite, but I relate more to the yellow. Huh? In the end I prefer Reece's Pieces.

Tan will always be my favorite. RIP TAN M&Ms.

Blue M&M's are evil. I don't say that because I'm afraid of the hipsters out there, but because it replaced my favorite M&M color: Light Brown

I didn't take a class or anything, but from what I understand, Light Brown fans are bright, witty, and like Mexican food.

I just eat 'em by the handful... what does that say about me, other than I'm fat?

It's true, green are my favorite.

Holy crap. In the back of my mind I played along and chose brown--I reasoned it's more natural looking. Then I read your blurb--it's like you've known me my whole life. The clockwork of my existence has been exposed by something as trivial as my M&M color preference. Unfortunately, I'm being serious.

Sounds like a case of Dissociative Identity Disorder...

Seriously. Tan M&Ms were indicative of well adjusted, successful people. I think this is a plot by Mars to subvert the human race. Mars candy...aliens...hmmm...I might be onto something here.

I think she has blue and yellow switched. Blue is the unnatural color. Really! Can you think of anything in nature that is edible that is also blue? For that reason I've always subconsciously avoided the blue ones.

I don't have a preference either. What DOES that mean?

Agreed. I don't remember why I said they weren't!

Well Cathy, I'm afraid it's pretty serious. It means you go through life trying to avoid decision making, which often stems from a systemic lack of self-confidence. Or you could just be hungry and a fan of candy in general ;)

Blueberries aren't actually blue. They're purple.
