I have always enjoyed the tangy congealed high fructose corn syrup of Skittles. As a child I favored the flavor with red #40, but as I matured, so did my taste buds. Soon, I most yearned for the combined taste of yellow #5 and blue #1. LIME!
And now it is all over. Gone. Lime has been replaced by sour apple. SOUR. APPLE. This is an abomination and an insult to my taste buds and my humanity.
Please, Skittles, reverse this folly.
PS. We have been in the woods too long.

That is truly an abomination. The limes were my favorite, too!ReplyDelete
Life is full of adventure with its thrills and disappointments. Imagine the shock and horror when multitudes of Skittles fans discover their favorite flavor has been replaced with sour apple. They may as well replace the sour apple with kiwi, or battery acid, or arsenic. Yuck! I do hope the despair won't immobilize you--leaving you hopeless and crying in the woods.ReplyDelete
