I Eat Them By Color, I Confess

    I Thought I Was The Only Person Who Does This!

    everything from fruit snacks, gummy bears, m&ms, skittles etc. I sort them by colour before I eat them. Everyone I know says it's the oddest thing and think I'm OCD or something, but I'm not. They kind of joke around about me being the next Howard Hughes. :P haha I wish (before...

    M&Ms and Skittles

    I eat all the brown ms first, then the yellow, then the red, then the orange, then the blue, then the green. Did I leave any out? It's not really important so long as I leave the green for last. I'm OCD about that. The green have to be eaten last.

    What Can I Say

    I guess we all have our little ticks from time to time. Who would make a bag of candy that has more of some colors than others. They did this just to keep me entertained while I snack I think

    Skittles And M&m's

    I eat the red first, blue second, green third and the rest last. It's one of my strange habits.

    I have OCD, so I pretty much do everything a certain way.  So, yes, I eat the M&Ms by color.  I pour them out, sort them by color, then eat the darkest colors first.  I always save blue for last.

    An Ocd Trait of Mine

    I thought it was so funny I saw this group and had to join, because ever since I can remember, I've done this. not just M&M's but any kind of candy like that. And it's NOT just that I eat them by color. First I seperate them into colors and I eat...

    It Makes Them Last.

    Sure, I COULD just shovel the M&Ms in without a thought - and have been known to to so, with vigour. But it's over so quickly when I do! Sorting them is not just fun and amusing - it also makes them last longer, and they look much prettier when you take the lame colours out...

    Taste the Rainbow

    Peanut M &Amp; M'S

    Not really. I just eat them from the bag. I'll pour some into my hand and eat one, then another, and another until they are gone. I like the peanut ones and the pretzel ones.

    And Lucky Charms

    Above and beyond just the colors, I eat the regular cereal pieces out of Lucky Charms first, until all that's left is a bowl of sorta melty marshmallow pieces.  Is this too weird?

    Sadly, Not Just M&Ms

    I eat most assorted candies by color. Usually the ones I like least are the first to be munched and I save my favorites for last. Also, I try not to eat candies of different colors at the same time. (Yes, I know I'm weird.) The candies that I am positive I do this with are...

    MMMM M&m's

    I love M&M's although I don't eat them often.  I really thought I was the only person that ate them based on color until I saw this group.  Well I start with the green ones.  When all the green is gone I then eat the yellow ones.  ...

    Got to Have a Green

    In school and you brought M&Ms to the group activity others would ask for some you needed to pour until a green came out. Sometimes there was only one in the whole bag so it became a tresured one or the rumor that the green ones made you horny.

    I Taste the Rainbow One Color At a Time

    When I eat Skittles I always save the best for last.  I start with yellow, then green, purple, orange, red.  Always in that order.

    Me, Too

    I start with the color that has the most, and then move through each group until I get to the smallest group. YUM!!!
