Get ready to say goodbye to one of Crayola's crayon colors!

The buzz is circulating on the internet and on Crayola's Facebook Page where fans are commenting with pleas to keep their favorite colors.

Which one of the colors will go? Here are the colors in the 24-count pack: 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.
