Crayola Unveiled Fans' Top Pick for the New Blue

WKRG Staff - MOBILE, Alabama (CNN)  Say hello to "Bluetiful."

After months of online voting, crayola unveiled fans' top pick for the new blue.  The name was chosen from nearly 90,000 submissions.

Bluetiful was a close second on News 5's online poll

It beat out other suggestions like "Dreams Come Blue" and "Star Spangled Blue."

Bluetiful's color was a product of scientists at Oregon State University, who accidentally discovered it during experiments on materials for electronics.

Bluetiful will replace the recently-retired "Dandelion" color.

Crayola says the new shade is coming soon to stores.
