Skittles are small bite sized candies that pack a lot of flavor. Skittles have been enjoyed by Americans since 1979. By 1989, Wrigley realized that the world was ready for more flavors of Skittles and that is when they started producing new and exciting flavors that many people enjoy still to this day. Over the years, the variety of Skittles flavors has expanded to include tropical, sour and even a blended variety that blends different flavor groups together to create a unique taste.
