A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. - James Dent

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,
I was wondering why some food products have little colored circles on them. For instance, on Yoplait yogurt they have about 10 of these circles on the side of the container; I have also noticed them on potato chip bags.

A: Dear Bud,

Those are color samples of the different colors that were used to print the packaging. Yoplait yogurt (grossest of all yogurts sold at Macey's) has very colorful images, and so requires many colors....thus the plethora of dots on the side.

-Aquene, who much prefers the runny generic yogurt
