Icons of the Analog Age: Skittles
Yes, Skittles, another child of the Analog Age that lives on to this day. These fruity version of the M & M were created in 1974 and introduced in the US in 1982. Coming in a color loud crinkly tiny bag, this candy is literally bursting with the flavor of a rainbow. Since it started they’ve added a bunch of different sets of flavors from super sour to italian ice with menthol.
I think that should be a legal requirement that anyone who eats Skittles has to wear that outfit.
Whenever I eat these things my mouth waters so much. After the bag is gone, my mouth is all torn up, and usually end up biting the inside of my cheek. This is an agressive candy. The filling is all sugar like a jelly bean, but they must have a lot of citric acid in it to get that sour bursty sensation. Don’t get me wrong, I love ’em, in fact I love them so much that I ate a giant 1 pound bag and I still can’t believe not I’m diabetic!
