Huh. That's a good question, actually. Next time I'm in that aisle I'll take a picture and share.

Or they just pay more for better shelf space.

I always buy the green bags from the bottom shelf! They're cheaper and the quality is the same (to me, at least).

I'd guess one or more brands is trying to piggy back on the more popular blue packaged brand.

My favourite is one of the local blue box brands offers spaghetti, spaghettini, and spaghettoni, and to distinguish them from each other you'd need some pretty finely calibrated calipers, because the naked eye can't spot the difference.

How do calipers help you spot an n, i, and o?

Weird.
