Orange is an M&Ms character that is the spokescandy for Pretzel M&Ms, Crispy M&Ms, and he also appears on the wrapper of Mint Crisp M&Ms. He is very paranoid, and is always scared or nervous. He always thinks that he will be eaten because he is a delicious M&M. His best friend is Pretzel Guy, who appears with him in the Pretzel M&M commercials. Orange was originally known as Crispy because he was the spokescandy for Crispy M&Ms, but Crispy M&Ms are no longer sold in certain parts of the world, like New York, so he is now the spokescandy for Pretzel M&Ms. Crispy M&Ms came back but he isn't in the ads. He is also the spokescandy for Caramel M&Ms along with Caramel. Orange is voiced by Eric Kirchberger.
Orange is shy, and is unable to defeat his fears. He is a big pal to Pretzel Guy, who tries to encourage him.
It is believed that his fearful nature is due to an existential angst stemming from the Mormon prophet John Taylor's declaration that M&Ms have no place in God's plan, and that the chocolate-made-flesh-made-chocolate automatons are demon-spawn, fated to melt for all eternity. It is also speculated that he suffers from severe PTSD after fighting on the beaches in Normandy during the Second World War. Between 1945 and 1960, Orange did not appear in any commercials, as he was seeking therapy for his severe trauma. However, nothing can cure the shellshock he now suffers from, as well as his deep religiously-based existential angst.
Orange is deeply and fundamentally religious. He has strongly republican views.
Orange is (obviously) the colour orange. He is much rounder and resembles a sphere more than the other M&Ms. This is because he has always had something round inside of him (originally a Crispy rice sphere, now a pretzel sphere). Orange wears a generic pair of white gloves like the other male M&Ms, but his shoes are unique. Crispy wears high top sneakers with laces (that are almost always untied). He also has black eyebrows like the other M&Ms.
Orange first appeared in the diner ad, introducing the new Crispy M&M's, he is seen talking about himself trying to avoid himself from being eaten.
Orange appears in the M&Ms Plane ad, he is seen hiding with the rest of the M&Ms in the plane bathroom to avoid being eaten. When Red announces that there are only thirteen more hours left of the flight he rolls his eyes.
