The traditional mix of the early to mid-80s consisted of the following colors (in order of my personal preference): Green, TAN, Yellow, Brown, Orange. No disgusting red or unnecessary blue in there to screw up the delicate color palette. Man, M&M/Mars needs to make a reissue of 'Vintage' style M&Ms mixes with NO red or blue. I bet they'd sell like crazy, thanks to nutcases like me.

Tan ones are still available at the m&m website. You can them any color on there. If you want tan ones, try that.

I don't remember the tan ones tasting any different, myself, but I DO remember when they were in each packet. I also like the idea of M&Ms releasing an 80's variety with no red or blue!

The tan ones were my second-to-least favorite (the least being the dark brown). Yes, I have to sort them by color and eat them least to most favorite! :P

Actually, the candy coating all tastes the same--just different colors. My favorite color is blue, so I'm glad the blue ones kicked out the tan ones.

Tan was available from 1950-1995. The number that was called in 1995 to vote on a replacement color (blue) was 1-800-fun-color
