Why is it called White Day?

Since marshmallows are usually white, the day was originally called Marshmallow Day. However, the name was later changed to White Day.

On White Day, men can give women anything, not just marshmallows, and the gifts are usually white. Examples include white candy, white flowers, or a white teddy bear.
