Did the recent greenYgrey rebranding cost Green and Grey a place in Britain’s top 50 pairings? That’s been the alpha topic of discussion in the office this week, after the Daily Express revealed a 1000-humans Elizabeth Shaw survey for their new chocolates range.
Britain’s Favourite Trios Theory
With the greenYgrey now a trio after the promotion of Yellow it might have made the great British public overlook the Green and Grey five-years double act.
Green, Grey and Yellow are probably the second favourite trio in Britain now, after the Bronte sisters.
Or did the royal couple Kate and William’s Oz visit happen too late to rekindle memories of Grey’s epic Oz ramble by Google Maps, with Green also making an appearance or two.
William and Kate not too Late
However, the above theory might well be disproved by the royal couple themselves.
William and Kate could also now be called a trio, with the arrival of George, or even four including Lupo the dog, but they still made it into the favourite couples list at #28.
Only one place below fruit and nut chocolate bars.
Britain’s Favourite Double Acts
A better theory might be that the Greenygrey expected too much too soon, with even Aleksandr Orlov and Sergei not making the top fifty.
The most recent pair in the Greenygrey genre are Wallace and Gromit, who date back to the 1990s and made it into the chart at #21.
Old greats Sooty and Sweep were at #26, and Keith Harris and Orville were the only other anthropomorphic couple, just making it in at #46.
