SPOTTED ON SHELVES: Limited Edition Long Lost Lime Skittles

Limited Edition Long Lost Lime Skittles

I see Skittles of green, red ones too. I taste the lime, not green apple this time. And I think to myself, what a wonderful world. (Spotted by Carla at Walmart.)

  1. My only concern is that how long it will stick around? Then vanish into the darkness again

  2. Green colored candy should be lime flavored! American candy manufacturers need to get over their obsession with Green Apple flavor!

  3. I was so confused by this news and had to google… aaaaand now all makes sense.
    I was really confused about the “lost lime” flavor since i thought it IS an actual flavor. And it is, but here in Germany, not the US. 🙁
    I can see why you’re so excited, but at the same time: Why do you have grape flavor and we have to live with blackcurrant. So unfair! 🙁

    1. I love black currant! I’m jelly of you! Blech to lime. Guess I’m the odd one out of everyone!

      1. Oh! How rare!
        Isn’t it? I mean it’s not the most common flavor/fruit in the US due to certain circumstances, so it must be hard to get black currant. Or got the situation a bit better? ^^

        And don’t get me wrong here. I like black currant too, but i tend to love grape more.
        It’s just… grape is a reaaaallly cooooommon fruit here, but the flavor is pretty damn rare in Jams/Yoghurts/Candies and so on, that i would love to have it instead of black currant… 🙁
        (I think it’s the same for you with grape and black currant :))

  4. Let’s just call it what it is, “We fucked up” Lime. They got some nerve making it limited edition too

  5. Where do you find them???!! Ten (yes ten) Walmarts later and no lime!!! Where are they?

  6. Is anyone compiling a list of which Walmart stores in Wisconsin and Illinois are carrying these? A friend and I have been looking from Beloit to Madison and Milwaukee and everywhere in between to no avail. Any employees we’ve asked have no idea what we’re talking about. ?

  7. No. I appreciate the gesture but this is not what we want. We will accept nothing less than the permanent removal of green apple from the original flavors.
