Now might be a good time to bring back the taboo on funny colored drinks. One reason antifreeze comes in bright blue and green colors is so people will recognize it as poison and not drink it.

If that’s really what happened, the bright blue or green colored flavors would have made it easier to disguise.
It might be time to ban antifreeze colored drinks on public health grounds.November 10, 2005
