Red Cars

A headline story on Yahoo news claims to have “the truth about red cars.” So I was curious and read the article. It says that red cars are popular because the color red portrays power. But I say that the color red also means passion and it means high risk.

The article says that the most popular car color in the United States is white. The second most popular color is silver. The least popular colors include orange, purple, pink and green.

I think the popular colors of cars also depend upon where you live. I know that in the desert states, the hot southwestern and the hot southern states all make driving a dark colored car very uncomfortable. So it would be natural to choose a white or silver colored car in those states. In the colder northern states, the color black is both practical and popular.

Chocolate and Pretzels

Chocolate goes great on a lot of things. I discovered chocolate covered pretzels about 5 years ago. There are several ways to get a chocolate covered pretzel, but I like the ones at the Kroger that come in a plastic tub for about $2.

Last year I was at a Christmas holiday party and someone was passing around a bowl of white chocolate covered pretzels. Those were really good, in a different way. White chocolate just doesn’t taste the same to me, but it is OK for a change.

So now I hear that M&Ms are coming out with a chocolate covered pretzels version of M&Ms. I imagine these will be the milk chocolate, with the traditional hard candy shell. I’m looking forward to giving them a taste test.
