split pea soup: green or yellow?

My local megasupermart was out of green split peas the other day, so I got yellow instead, and made split pea soup out of them. I didn't seem to make much difference, but what do you all think?

  1. I've used both an haven't noticed a huge amount of difference, although I've never done a back-to-back taste test. I do generally prefer the green ones, if only for the pretty colour.
