Transcript of Skittles Presentation

Skittles Skittles were first made commercially in Britain. They came to America in 1979 and started production in 1982. Skittles were originally made under the Mars candy company that was founded by Frank C. Mars and his wife Ethel, but are now made under the Wrigley company. What Are Skittles Made Of? Skittles are made up of real fruit juice, citric acid, natural and artificial flavors, palm kernel oil, sugar, and corn syrup. There are multiple flavor options such as cherry, pink lemonade, blue raspberry, lime, lemon, grape, orange, and a lot of tropical flavors as well. There are 231 calories in a single, full sized pack of skittles. When Did They Make All the Flavors? The first Skittles package is the "Original Fruit" package. Including orange, lemon, grape, lime, and strawberry. The next new flavor packages cam out the same year, 1989 and they were the "Wild Berry" and the "Tropical" packages. In 2000, Skittles came out with "Sour Skittles", "Crazy Core" Skittles were introduced in 2009. The final existing flavor skittles is the "Fizzl'd Fruit", where the Skittle starts to bubble and fizz inside your mouth. Those are the existing flavors, but they might come up with more.
