Black chalk At 5 this week, it’s very handy when you can’t find a rubber: black chalk.

 

 

Dark green chalk At 4, a very useful colour when you’re drawing the new Chalkdust T-shirt or the District line: dark green chalk.

 

 

Purple chalk Thousands of people buying Prince brand chalk have brought purple chalk back into this week’s top ten.

 

 

Light green chalk At 2, a very useful colour when you’re drawing the Poddington Peas or the District line on a faded map: light green chalk.

 

 

White chalk Topping the Pops this week: the ever popular white chalk. Can you imagine a lecture without white chalk? Neither can we. Because we’ve never seen a whiteboard.
