All the Colours of the Rainbow

With respect to science, we've discovered some disturbing, unofficial test results, not once but twice.

It appears that if you give your children every colour of the rainbow, you will discover that one colour is triumphant in the end. That's right. This is a mommy blog so I am talking about poo here.

After eating multiple shades of licorice, the dominant colour that will shock you with its vibrant shade and revolting chunky bits is a radiant shade of green.

Not actual poo!

Of course further research would be required to prove that this phenomenon goes beyond my two willing test subjects. However I do not condone the testing of any products on children even fruit flavoured candy. I think we will stick with regular Twizzlers from here on out.

Now if this doesn't seque into all matters green ever so nicely... Would you kindly spare a moment of your day to answer one important question?

Ahhh yes - the vibrant green. Been there with my guy. Not going back.

Someone else has already had the same results? Why isn't there a warning label on this stuff?

There should be a nationwide Public Service Announcement about the magic the "Rainbow" does to kids. I see doctors in emergency rooms explaining to over wrought parents... "It’s just something your child ate."

Been there. Hated it. HATED. IT.

Is that a frickin' Jello salad??? It may as well be actual poo!

kittenpie said...

Blech! On so many levels, blech!

I feel your pain!

First - the grossest part of that post is that jello. What is in there, pimento filled olives? yuk.

Second - isn't this something baby BLUE?

Masterful segue. Love the "Not actual poo!" disclaimer. :)

chelle said...

WHOA! There are multi-coloured TWIZZLERS!?!?!? Gosh how I miss twizzlers Canadian style, I would even do the poo just to have a Canadian twizzler!

Sacrificing your children for the greater good.

Hehe...haven't tried that particular experiment yet - good to know. I know that a lot of tomato pasta sauce turns it dark red.

yh said...

Not very encouraging... Is there a way to just feed your kid clear jello or something so you don't have to deal with color?

For us, it was Fenugreek that turned the Boy's poo to an alien green.

Jenifer said...

I didn't know they made RAINBOW TWIZZLERS!

SWEET!

Becki said...

Maybe it's not the food coloring, but something in the licorice itself. Because good old black Twizzlers will turn your poo bright green too. Please do not ask me how I know this.
