Has anyone noticed the change in crayons?
Back in the 1980s and 90s, something about crayons were different. They were waxy, rich in color, and did not flake off paper. Today, the crayons I’ve seen lately in doctor’s offices or Macaroni Grill (their food is terrible, btw) flake terribly when you try to use them. The colors are not vibrant. The texture of the crayon is different. They don’t seem to give as much mileage as that of the previous decades. I assume the “active ingredient” of crayons has changed. Modern crayons would seem to be an inferior product. Can anyone shed some light on what has happened?
