10 Food for thought While blue is one of the most popular colors it is one of the least appetizing. Blue food is rare in nature. Food researchers say that when humans search for food, they learned to avoid toxic or spoiled objects, which were often blue, black, or purple.

Red is often used in restaurant decorating schemes because it is an appetite stimulant.
