We talked about this in my Film and Video Digital Arts class a week or so ago and it got me to thinking what was the best color to use for Pepto Bismol.

I thought of Pepto Bismol being other colors such as orange, yellow, green, and cyan. I think I also thought of purple Pepto Bismol as well.

The end result... I think Pepto Bismol should stay pink.

What do you think the color of Pepto Bismol should be?

Hm. Interesting question.

IMO this is difficult because we are talking about an already positioned product. We all know that this medicine is pink, and would feel really weird to see it colored diferently. I would personally doubt if it was the "real McCoy" or an imitation. Tire la langue

On the other hand, it is evident that whoever designed that campaigned did his/her homework right. I mean, PB is the only pink colored medicine I know. Most other liquid medicines I know are etither red, or yellow, or white, or anything in between, orange included. So I guess the color really sets this medicine apart.

It should be colourless; less additives.

The active ingredient in Pepto-BismolŪ is a substance called bismuth subsalicylate, a chemical compound closely related to aspirin. Pure bismuth has been described as kind of reddish-white in colour, which would tend to suggest a pinkish tinge. In the commercial product, this color would be made more intense by adding artificial food-colour.

Yeah, it's not that big over here. Do people drink whole bottles of it? Isn't it like Actimal and Yakult drinks? I only remember hearing jokes about it on Sister Sister, I don't think I've ever seen a bottle in my local or anything.

Well, let's just say that you wouldn't want to drink bottles of it. Tire la langue It tastes horribly, like most medicines do, and the effects would be... very uncomfortable to say the least. o_O

You only take spoonfuls of it at a time; one every six hours or so. ^^

I think my dad used to drink it, but I can't remember if I ever tried it or not (if you're talking of the medicine I'm thinking of). If so as far as I remember it did taste horrible. One thing I think tastes horrible is Galviscon, which I can't take anyway.

I see I started a good post here. I like it when I pick a topic that gets a lot of replies. If I could I'd poll this and have you guys vote on the color.

I posted this also on http://ronstoppable.proboards89.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&thread=1161248533 and it's poll there. I've had several voters for this.

Thanks for viewing and replying. You may continue to do so if you so desire.
