Colors from the classic 24-pack include the traditional rainbow shades, as well as fun alternatives like apricot, scarlet, dandelion and cerulean.

Here’s the full list of colors, as of 2014:

  • Red
  • Yellow
  • Blue
  • Brown
  • Orange
  • Green
  • Violet
  • Black
  • Carnation pink

You’ll have to wait until Friday, which is also National Crayon Day, for the company to make their announcement. It’ll be announced on their Facebook page at 8:45 a.m.
