Good morning to all. There is nothing new about the colors orange and red as far as stimulation of appetite. MacDonald's and other fast food restaurants have been using that concept for years. I prefer my hot chocolate in a red snowflake cup during the Christmas holidays, lol. Seriously, if you are really craving hot chocolate that badly, it won't make any difference what the color of the cup is.

I agree. Color does seem to make a difference. Makes me wonder though, if ketchup started out as green to begin with, would that have made a difference? Yet, ketchup is the color of blood and you'd think that would be a turn-off. As much as I like ketchup though, I can't bare to watch someone put it on eggs, lol! I like the color blue, yet, I don't like it as far as to furnish or decorate my home.

I suppose I could have phrased it differently. Just the same, tomatoes aren't quite as red as the end product appears to be.:)

All I know is that I want it in my belly.

I actually use the remaining syruppy stuff at the botom of the cup as a rouge on my face.
