Welcome To Taste of States a place where we celebrate the weird and wonderful food of the United States of America. This can be everything from the snacks that are available for a limited time to the foods that are classic traditions at events such as Christmas and Thanksgiving! Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food.
LONG LOST LIME SKITTLES
This week we have a look at another limited edition flavour that Skittles released on the market years ago – Long Lost Lime. Long Lost Lime Skittles were originally released in 2013 and no, they are not all lime, instead they play on the fact of a complaint that some people have with Skittles.
Originally Skittles used to have a green candy that was lime but it was replaced with apple. These limited edition packets allowed fans to enjoy the flavour over and over again. About four years ago in 2017, Skittles brought the lime Skittles back again for a limited time which again fans appreciated.
