  3. I remember being told they look like they were dipped in raspberry juice, but this guy got into the wrong juice bottle… Love it.

    That is an interesting color. I have seen some that look a little orange, but never yellow.Maybe location has something to do with it.

    • Ruth, thank you! I think from what I read that location was the believed cause!
