White Skittles Limited Edition
I don't really know where to start with my thoughts about these new Limited Edition White Skittles Fruits. You wouldn't think there'd be much to say about sweets that have simply removed the colourings, but apparently there is.
They've been launched to support Gay Pride this Summer, stating "only one rainbow matters this Pride. Give the rainbow, taste the rainbow". The implication is that they've removed their traditional rainbow colours so that the Pride rainbow can shine instead. Oh, thanks for your kindness, Skittles!
That aside, I will admit that it was interesting trying the Skittles not knowing which flavour was which. All the classic flavours are there, from lemon to orange and strawberry and they taste just as good as ever. I had to fight the urge to get out some marker pens and colour them in, though!
Here's my (terrible) attempt at creating a rainbow out of white Skittles. Doesn't look too exciting does it?:
