Where do Skittles Come From?

Although the makers of Skittles would like us to think that they come from rainbows, that’s not really true.  So, where did Skittles originate from?

Surprisingly, Skittles is a relatively young candy in America.  They were first made in 1974 in Britain and were imported to America in 1979.  By 1982 Skittles were being made domestically and we were all invited to “taste the rainbow.”

Skittles now come in many different flavors, including:

Did you know that if you buy Original Skittles in England, the purple Skittle is Black Currant flavor and not grape?  Or, if you buy Original Skittles in Taiwan, Australia, South Korea or China, the green Skittle is green apple flavor instead of lime?
