Skittles is one of my favorite candies, but they’ve severely betrayed my love in the past. About four years ago, they did the unthinkable and swapped lime Skittles for green apple Skittles. All this time later, people are still not pleased.
I just stole a green Skittle from my kid and
OH MY GOD ITS GREEN APPLE NOT LIME WHY HAVE YOU COMMITTED THIS ATROCITY

moving to France because they still sell lime flavored skittles

Get it together, Skittles! I don’t want to taste the rainbow if the G in your ROYGBIV is green apple and not lime. Who even decided that anyone would prefer green apple to lime? Which apple-loving corporate bigwig infiltrated Skittles’ ranks in order to pull that charade off?
Still pissed at skittles for changing the green skittle from lime to green apple. Like why, that was any move. #Skittles Do better

Apparently, a lot of folks feel just as impassioned as I do about this injustice, because Skittles is bringing back lime for a limited time this summer.
“Long Lost Lime” packs of the chewy fruit candy will be sold at Walmart all summer, and people are soooooo excited.
Omg lime skittles are back!!!!!!!! 😍😍😋😋🙌🏼🙌🏼😁😁

Dear @Skittles Thanks for bringing back lime. What do I have to do to get a bag with just lime skittles? You name it, I'll do it!

If you for some reason love green apple, the regular packs of Skittles will still have them. But if you’re a lime fiend, this is your chance to stock up. Opportunities as sweet as this don’t come every day.
