Turquoise is one of the few colors not found in plant matter or food. Wonder why that is.
There's turquoise candy though. And nice necklace.

Thanks! But candy doesn't count because it's colored artificially. But fruit...there's no turquoise fruit. Or vegetables. Or animal meat--unless it's rotten.
OK, maybe bleu cheese is sort of turquoise sometimes...that's kind of gross, isn't it? :-D

I really like such cheese, so I guess I don't think it's gross, no.. ;)

The cheese part isn't gross, but the dirty-turquoisish color of the moldy part is. I hate to admit it, but I'm sort of squeemish about eating mold in bleu cheese, probably because I *accidentally* ate moldy regular cheese and it freaked me out and I got sick. It's really gross when you're eating cheese and you're thinking "hmm, this tastes a bit...odd..." and then you look at the source cheese and see mold in it. Aaaaagh.
