Crayola Neon Crayons: What's Inside the Box

I love cute little boxes of Crayola crayons and the 8 count Crayola Neon crayons are no exception.  I was a little surprised when I opened the the box and found sky blue, shamrock, melon and carnation pink in the box, they did not seem neon to me. I even went to Walgreens this week to make sure they were really the colors that were supposed to be in the box.  The colors in the other neon 8 count boxes were atomic tangerine, *blizzard blue, laser lemon, outrageous orange, *razzle dazzle rose, shocking pink, *screamin green, *wild watermelon.  Some of the missing colors in this set are retired, some are not, maybe the other colors were not as popular but very similar in color.

Neon colors have always shared color names with the fluorescent crayons. Probably just another way to market the crayons.
