Gah! anthocyanins

I was fishing for this word, and my brain kept giving me acetomyophen (tylenol).

They are the red-purple-orange pigments in food, and the reason leaves are orange, and flamigoes pink :)

Go go comjugated double carbon bond chains!!! (Where the colour comes from)

So for future reference: anthocyanins
