Thursday Thirteen

The other day I started thinking about what foods come in the color orange. Here’s what came to mind:

1. carrots

2. apricots

3. pumpkin pie

4. sweet potatoes

5. acorn squash

6. marmalade

7. oranges (makes you wonder why that wasn’t first; doesn’t it?)

8. orange juice

9. tangerines

10. peaches

11. Colby cheese

12. cheese puffs

13. egg yolks

This proved tougher than I thought, though I doubtless missed some obvious ones. Writing them as they popped into my head, I found it interesting how my mind clung to fruit when I got desperate. And technically, peach is its own color but it's my list. So there.


  1. Not to mention Fanta and orange Jell-o.

    Very fun, Darla. Happy New Year!

  2. And let's not forget my personal favorite: clementines.

    Also, orange soda and fuzzy navels... do drinks count?

  3. The color we call peach isn't really the color of peaches anyway, so I would say it belongs on the list. Not that you were taking a vote or anything. Now you have me thinking of papaya, persimmon, various melons that are orange inside... I'm getting hungry. Gotta go check the fridge.
    Happy New Year!

  4. I appreciate the kind words! Now I'm hungry and thirsty. :)
