Now I'm not one to complain, but the last 2 packets of Fruit Pastilles I have purchased have roughly consisted of the following:
7 Orange
4 Yellow
2 green
2 Black
1 Red


My order of preference is as follows:
1. Red
2. Black
3. Green
4.Yellow
5. Orange

What's going on? Is God punishing me? :cry:

Just goes to show; Orange is God's favourite colour. :D

The law of averages is punishing you.

bought two kinda eggs and had the same Helicopter (back when the toys were good) in each.

So you want two less orange and one more green? I'm sure they would happily oblige by putting one less in every package. :D

There is def an orange conspiracy going on!! I can understand the lack of black ones, after all they put those in a packet on their own these days, but no such pleasure is available for red?!! :?
