Update: Crayola on Thursday — a day before it planned to make the news public — announced on Twitter that dandelion is the color that will say good-bye.
In a Philly.com poll, which listed five possible losers, few of our readers chose the right one.
Out of 503 votes cast, 33 percent thought the color white would leave the pack. Meanwhile, cerulean got 21 percent; dandelion 18 percent; violet red 16 percent; and blue violet 11 percent.
Crayola is about to rock your childhood memory world.
On Friday, the Easton-based company will retire one of the iconic colors from its 24-count box, a ubiquitous fixture in classrooms, playrooms, bedrooms, and backpacks that dates to 1905, according to Wikipedia.
Which color will go and which will survive is a closely-guarded secret.
The company has a special countdown on its website and will broadcast the "One Will Say Goodbye" announcement in a Facebook Live event from Times Square in New York City.
"Something BIG is happening at Crayola. On March 31st we'll retire one of our iconic colors. Will it be one of your favorites? #WhosLeaving," the company posted.
The current 24-count box contains red, yellow, blue, brown, orange, green, violet, black, carnation pink, yellow orange, blue green, red violet, red orange, yellow green, blue violet, white, violet red, dandelion, cerulean, apricot, scarlet, green yellow, indigo and gray, ABC reported.
Once the color is retired, the company says it will not produce any additional crayons in that shade, the station reported.
