Crayola Special Edition 100 Count Crayons: What's Inside the Box

The year before Crayola turned 100 years, when Crayola made it's very first box of crayons, Crayola released the Special Edition 100 Crayons box.  Crayola would retired four of the five following crayons; magic mint, blizzard blue, burnt sienna, mulberry and teal blue in the Save the Shade contest.  Voters voted for the colors online on Crayola's website.  To replace the four colors that were retiring Crayola was holding a simultaneous contest Name the New Colors, where people could name the new crayon colors.  The color that was saved was burnt sienna and the new color names were jazzberry jam, mango tango, inch worm and wild blue yonder.

This box is really neat because it is a gold box, a color not used very often on boxes.  It also features a birthday cake.  A little bit of trivia is this box is actually a 96 count box stuffed with 4 crayons stuffed to make it 100.
