Skittles are brightly colored crunchy candy shells over chewy fruity centers. Skittles were first introduced in the United States as an imported item in 1979, it wasn't until 1982 that domestic production began. Surprisingly, the classic slogan 'taste the rainbow,' didn't come into play until 1994. There are various assortments and varieties of colors, flavors, and themes. Currently, Candy Crate offers the Sour Skittles and Original Skittles, but may expand in the future.
