Crayola just announced plans to retire one of the colors from their iconic 24-count box of crayons. 

Which color will be removed? You'll have to wait until Friday to find out because the company is keeping that a secret for now. 

The current list of colors included in the 24-count box is: red, yellow, blue, brown, orange, green, violet, black, carnation pink, yellow orange, blue green, red violet, red orange, yellow green, blue violet, white, violet red, dandelion, cerulean, apricot, scarlet, green yellow, indigo and gray.

Reports say that after one of those colors is retired, that color crayon will never be produced ever again
