    So, here in my office, we get a giant bag of starbursts that is kept in the break room for about 12 of us. We are always left over with the yellow ones only. I like them, but majority do not. This sparked about an hour long discussion this morning about which colors are preferred, assuming that you enjoy the candy.

    What is your favorite color?

    Pink & red, but some reason the red-only bags don't work for me. There's at least one red variant in there I don't like.

    I have no problem with the yellows.

    Is there no green for sour apple anymore? Wasn't that an original color/flavor?

    If you selected Yellow please identify yourself so I can block you.

    I know overseas they have grape and either sour apple or lime (it's green) in place of lemon and orange.

    Yeah, it was Lime (green). That was my favorite because it was sour.

    So, lime is no longer in the "Original" packs?

    History

    The brand was introduced by Mars in the UK in 1960, named by Peter Pfeffer in a competition that won him £5, as Opal Fruits.[1] The four original flavors were strawberry, lemon, orange, and lime.

    Honestly, I have yellow as my 2nd favorite. I like eating it with the pink one at the same time. Very nice combination of flavors.

    As a lifelong green (sour) apple enthusiast I can't emphasize this enough.

    Probably the reason I never liked starburst.


    But I have to agree even though i don't like them to begin with, the yellows look disgusting.
