Old school green (lime) or new (apple)?


Oh there’s a new school? I thought it was still lime. If it’s green apple then yeah, it’s the worst and can **** right off.


Yeah, unless I’m completely off my rocker (50/50) they switched it over to green apple.... which is **** awful.

You have to eat them in combination with each other. It is with the harmony of carefully selected flavor combinations that lets you truly taste the rainbow.

Purple
Yellow
Red
Green
Orange

Much like with starbursts, orange is *far and away* in last place.

Pink Starburst is at worst the second best flavor. I will also fight anyone on this.

Fine, call me a maniac but I separate the skittles into groups by color. Least favorite on the left, favorite on the right. Start with the left group, eating only one at a time. Make my way to the right. Takes roughly 45 minutes to eat a bag.

I'd put yellow over orange but it's not even close to pink or red.

Red, orang, pink, yellow for me.

Hot topic of discussion I've had with friends over the years though. Are Skittles/starburst all the same but just different colors? If you blindfold and plug your nose you won't be able to tell. My belief is they are all the same, however the different food colorings have a different smell which affects how you eat them. So the detente conclusion we'd get to is they have the same "taste", however due to the food coloring and smell it does technically make them different "flavors"

I'm more on board with this theory for skittles, starbursts have different tastes.

I also just dump the bag of skittles into my mouth so wtf do I know? From the time's I've eaten them Individually, the fruit flavor is much less distinct. Perhaps because it is just coming from our smell.

Greeks, unite. Tsitsipas, down 0-2 and match point to Djokovic, has come roaring back and evened the match. Fifth set about to begin.
