SKITTLES brings back lime to their lineup - 'this time for good'
It's been eight years since SKITTLES candy changed the green SKITTLES flavor from lime to apple, causing an uproar among fans of the sweet treat.
Now, the madness can come to an end as SKITTLES announced green apple is out and lime is permanently back in.
Starting in October 2021, every Original and Sour packs of SKITTLES will now contain Orange, Lemon, Grape, Strawberry, and yes, Lime.
"It's no secret that Lime has been a hot topic for SKITTLES fans since we replaced them with Green Apple back in 2013. Green Apple has had a good run, but the fans have spoken and it's time for Lime to return to the rainbow," said Fernando Rodrigues, Mars Wrigley Senior Brand Manager. "What better way to bring better moments to our loyal fans, than with the return of the most asked about flavor? The joy of Lime can't be denied anymore. It is back. This time for good."
