Skittles are small roundy chewy candies with a white letter "S" printed on them.These candies are coated in a hard coated shell. They are made by Masterfoods, a division of Mars Incorporated. This is the same company that makes the ever popular M&M's.
This particular variety has chocolate based flaros. It has five namely
* S'mores (copper)
* Chocolate Pudding (auburn)
* Chocolate Caramel (brown)
* Vanilla (off-white/buff)
* Brownie Batter (dark brown/black)
The ingredients are as follows: Sugar, corn syrup, hydrogenated palm kernel oil, less than 2% coca powder processed with alkali, dextrin, modified corn starch, artificial and natural flavours, colouring (includes yellow 6 lake, red 40 lake, yellow 5 lake, blue1 lake, blue 2 lake, yellow 5), Gluten-free
These treats are known for their fruity flavors but as an added twist, they started manufacturing these chocolatetreats and unveiled them in the all Candy Expo and in 2007. I like this very much as I am a chocoholic. Having five different flavors adds variety and value to the product plus the choice of mixing and matching flavors.
